1) Why Everyone’s Talking About Mega Drone X

The big story this week was the success of Mega Drone X in Kentucky. Last week’s “This Week in…” had a reminder, so don’t blame us if you missed it. But you can still read all about it at least.

2) Orlando Rotoracers Featured in Local News

This is a great video for a few reasons. They learned enough to call it a quad, they made it easy for viewers to get involved, and no annoying ads on the page. But wait, there’s more! Special web footage from Nelson Aquino of Gravity Goons.

The Rotoracers are a MultiGP chapter who’re having their next scheduled event on May 29, 2016. More information. 

3) International Drone Day is Tomorrow

For the second annual IDD, 150+ events celebrating drones will take place tomorrow around the world, even around Washington, D.C.. Find a group near you to participate and get your thumbs ready to flood #IDD16 all day on social media.

Embrace the drone.

Head to head pilots both mess up the last gate – but one recovers a little bit faster.
