Time Trails U.S. Drone Nationals 2015

This video offers up a good feel for the technical difficulty of the course for the first U.S. Drone Nationals event.  Hacktillwedie (his youtube handle) provided this great FPV video of his flying his quad during the first heat of the day on day 1 of the event.  The time trial was 5 laps of the course.  Looks like a good solid course with lots of tight turns and air gates.  Will be interesting to see how this event affects the growth of the sport of fpv drone racing.  There seems to be a lot of interest around the world recently with fpv racing and freestyle of mini quads.  Nice to think that this event, officially called the 2015 FATSHARK US NATIONAL DRONE RACING CHAMPIONSHIPS,  which got some good PR in the media (including CBS This Morning) will push this exciting sport to the next level of popularity in the U.S., and beyond.
