Hey Guys,

This is probably the first official launch for India Drone Nationals. It will take everyones participation and help to achieve this dream. Hopefully we might even see India among the countries at the Drone Worlds if we take this forward on a bigger scale.Here is the launch video for IndiaDroneNationals

Please Share, Like the FB page to stay updated
https://www.facebook.com/IndiaDroneNationals/?fref=nf



There will be a google Doc form published on the page soon so that pilots into mini/plane FPV racing across India can register so that we can have a headcount of how many pilots are there.Also the plan for now is to nominate a person from each city across india where FPV racing Groups exist so that this person could be the point of contact to gather information, suggestions etc for holding the nationals. Also on a more broader level we would like to know how many such FPV groups are there across cities and how many members in each Group. Currently such a group exists in Bangalore which is 9 member strong and i am sure there are more.

So , looking forward to receiving suggestions etc from you guys regarding the same and if anyone has any specific ideas,wants to contribute,help organise/support feel free to PM.

Thanks
Devesh

Nice initiative but what bothers me is the WORD DRONE.  We are into a hobby that is called Aero Modelling of which Multirotor ( Drone ) is a part. Already the word drone has gained enough Negative Popularity in India.  Then why again use the same word.  Its my sincere request to change the title of the event to some other name.  Thanks n Regards.

@miginstruments - Multirotors with complete autonomous capabilities and FPV setups do not really fall under aeromodelling as such. Also like aniket said its about time people change their attitude towards this. Lets not have a debate about this as this is never ending. I do understand your concerns regarding this though and it will be a major challenge as we move ahead but there are ways around this so do not worry much  Smiley

Well seeing the initiative to have the drone nationals in a country like us where the hobby is much less known to people is certainly
a great endeavor and it could potentially boost and promote the fpv and drone racing. I am flying fpv since a year and a half and watching
drone race videos in youtube, was the most i could do. being a part of the national event and being in the root of it will give many of us
a great privilege. Its just becoming mainstream and now its high time we should upfront this among our people. As exciting it is we may not know we could find a great deal of enthusiasm in the people.

This should be definitely implemented and yes we may have to face certain legal circumstances but when u wish to fly who can stop u. With the collaborative effort this can be made a huge success. Agreed with dunder93http://www.rcindia.org/profile/?u=4895 and ready for it.

The main problem would be location. We are all scattered in India. I mean it won't be possible for me, staying in Mumbai to travel to Delhi or Banglore for the event and same lies for others. If we can organise different individual events in states having majority of flyers then.... But again cost is the issue here.

it will be pretty much impossible to organize races state-wise right now, coz it will just be a waste of both resources and money just like you said, i think its better to have a national meet, we will know and interact with every drone racers in India and have a great time Thumbs Up, and Darshan you can always make some time for what you love Giggle

Nice to see the response  Smiley Guys venue shouldnt be a big issue. Indoor warehouse will be nice but one bad hit and if you dont have a backup quad you might be out Tongue Sagnik nice opportunity to get things sold  Grin Giggle
Darshan, state wise races will be a solution going ahead but presently given we dont have that many flyers in each state it will be a waste of resources like sagnik said. But people from a common city need to start grouping together and you guys can just have some races amongst yourself, start setting up some Multi Gp UTT tracks and get some times on that. We can then have a cummulative lap time chart for flyers in India on the IDN page/website etc.
So it will be best to first hold a national meet, and i am sure if you are really into Mini/racing wing FPV you will make it  Wink It will be most likely be a two day event spread across saturday and sunday with a lot of racing events/activities. First of its kind in India so like sagnik said its about getting everyone together and having a blast.
The idea is to hold a survey/registration soon and see what people would like/not like etc and build up the first idea of the event based on that.
I understand if you are still a student, you might have monetary constraints so we will try our best to take all factors into account.

PS: there will definitey be a night track like the FPV lightrax one  Grin

I am just a beginner at flying. Just got my FPV setup last month and I am unable to fly lately due to rains. Also, I don't have any good wide field to fly. I have a place in mind but the rains are again a pain. Mastering FPV will atleast take me 2 months minimum.
@dunder93 Yup monetary issues and time availability issues are the current problems

Most are getting into the hobby lately, but unlike before you guys have an advantage of having LHS shops carry almost everything you need for flying FPV mini quads and at awesome prices, Last year i sat idle for 4 months just cause i couldnt import ESC's to get my quad flying  Bang Head and then when i finally got a job, no time to fly  Sad till i met pravesh  Giggle anyways my point being each one of us will have to make some sacrifice or another if we want such an event to happen and well that is the risk you take when you enter this FPV hobby  Wink
Just get as much stick time as you can in the meanwhile till the event.
Once again the aim of the first event isnt to be really competitive but to get everyone together on the same track and then take this forward collectively

Its a good start. I have my first FPV racer ready but yet to fly it because of the rains. I guess it will take a lot of time for me to master FPV flying, if it survives the likely crashes Wink No issues with calling it a drone national as the whole world is using the term. It won't make a difference if we call it something else.

One thing that works as a relief is that small racers are not readily recognised by others as "drone" and not likely to be perceived as a threat, inspite of the capability. An indoor stadium would be a great place for a small scale start. It would also enable us to bypass the DGCA issue because indoor flying will not come under its purview.

Kudos for the extremely good video. Hope to fly like that some day.

The venue will be judged and selected after a small survey of all the possible places in India and it will be held on our website where all fpv racers will post some pictures of some cool spots where the event can be held, without issues, and the website will be fully functional within a week I guess. BTW I have already bought the domain- indiadronenationals.com, working on the website now, and we will make this real Wink
