Our KCG Drone racing is a high speed competitive race, in which the racers use self-built drones to race with other competitors. The event takes place in two stages; where in the first stage is the assembly round and the second stage is the racing round.
Also we have an open challenge competition in which competitors are allowed to use ready to fly models (RTF) and readymade kits. The rules, regulations and awards are different for open and Pro challenges.
