It is time to continue our search for the best pilots to represent Drone-Racing Belgium at international events. At minus 2, we will qualify 3 pilots for the ERSA European Championship in Ibiza and 2 pilots for Drone Worlds in Hawaii. All information about our qualifier events can be found here.

 

This one will be all about racing, no spectators allowed. We want to maximize the amount of flights each pilot can do throughout the day on this event!
