All competitors must be at least 8 years old to fly at the Drone Meet.
Fly a multi-rotor drone in one of several different skill-specific competitions held in the Hiller Aviation Museum Drone Plex.
Join a Drone Competition!
Fly with the best of the best in a thrilling series of multirotor competitions. Each Drone Meet event focuses on a different skill in quadcopter flight, and utilizes the Hiller Aviation Museum’s Drone Plex facility. Drone Meet events include:
- Preflight briefing
- Practice with a drone flight simulator
- Competition using a Museum-provided Drone appropriate for the event
Each Drone Meet features rounds at 1, 2 and 3 PM. Events are included with Museum admission, but space for each round is limited. Competitors must register at the Invention Lab (10 AM – 1 PM) or Drone Plex (1 PM – 4 PM) on the day of competition.
Precision Landing (March 11): Master low-speed hovering and precise multirotor flight. Practice landing on a designated target, then complete by flying to and landing within the smallest possible distance from the target in the time available!
Loop-the-Hoop (April 8): Take on the challenge of flying up to, around and through an obstacle! Learn the maneuvering needed to pass safely through a target loop, then race the clock to cleanly fly a loop routine in the shortest possible time!
Relay Race (May 13): Fly like the air racers of old, completing a circuit around pylons spaced around the Drone Plex. Fly in teams to complete the race without crashing ahead of the competition!
