First video in a series we’d like to make to help people get started in drone racing. Essentially tips and tricks and showing some of the logic in the way we do things.

There will always come a time when you have a competition coming up and you’re trying to get into form, but you know you’re a little run down or not going to be 100% in the zone. You basically have two options, push through and just outright train hard and possibly break a whole heap of gear or fly a “Fun track” that isn’t too stressful but still allows you to learn and develop.

I would class this as an intermediate track only because we have the Gravity Gate incorporated. Outside the gravity gate there is the last slalom which gets tricky intentionally, but having said that, you have enough distance between it and the start gate to either abort or get back on line.

I’ll be using our DJI Mavic to get shots of the tracks we design, so you should be able to easily recreate these if you so wish since they are to scale.

Let me know if you’d like to see more of these tips and tricks.

TIP: For this track to achieve the objective of fun and enjoyable, you need to be able to do all the elements. If you’re not comfortable with Gravity Gates or Over Unders, you will need to change those elements, but this should give you an idea about what a fun/enjoyable track should feel like. Basically nothing should be off line.
