Welcome Pilot to FPVR National Drone Racing League Summer Season.
FPVR is First Person View Racing. The fastest growing sport right around the world.
Drone Racing in Australia has come a long way since its start in 2015.
FPVR and its affiliated clubs have united together to bring you an Australian wide leaderboard competition to reveal the top pilots from around the country.
The top pilots from participating chapters will be flown to Melbourne for the Aussie Open* and then some on to the International Open.
How the season work, in brief:
Summer season runs from October - February.
5 rounds in total.
We allow one missed/dropped round, so the top 4 rounds of the season count to your overall score.
Pilots race at a participating Chapter (DRA Sydney, Eastside Melbourne, CMRC ACT, Newcastle FPV, FPVR Gold Coast, FPVR Central Coast, AFPV Racing Adelaide and ROX in WA) See event page for more info.
All pilots from each event will receive "Championship" Points to go towards the leaderboard.
Chapters have the option to run up to 3 skill classes of racing. Rookie, Pilot & Pro.
NEW Pilots just starting out with FPVR will be graded during practice runs. Following the simple class rules of
Rookie Class = Struggles to finish a lap with airgates and flags
Pilot Class = Can fly a lap and on occasion 3 in a row.
PRO Class = Show me what you got.
Choose your class honestly and carefully. Race directors can move you into a more suitable class and points do not carry across mid season. eg. You register for Pilot class winning two events with clean sweeps. you will be moved to Pro class and points will not carry across.
NO LIMITS!! If it’s a Mulit-Rotor and complies with ACMA in regards to a maximum 25mW VTX output, you can race it. The track & environment will be what dictates which craft to fly.
We just hope you understand you’re only fast if you finish the race, so fly within your ability.
Again, Welcome to the Summer Season. Search your local club or chapter and get involved!
