About The Micro League

FPV Canada is committed to organizing drone races of all types and sizes across all of its official chapters in all the major cities Canada.This winter we are happy to start our new Canadian Micro Drone Racing League across most of our official chapters such as FPV Montreal, FPV Ottawa, FPV Toronto and FPV Vancouver. We have setup a shared FPV Canada Calendar with all of our events across Canada so everyone can add them to their schedule. Every winter Canadian pilots try and find places to fly and race their drones indoors, but flying racing drones requires ample space and that can get expensive or difficult to find. Luckily, our chapters have secured some super cool locations to fly indoors with micro drones such as, maker spaces, event spaces, lofts, gymnasiums, office spaces and event local pubs. Get your micro drones ready! we offer 2 classes - Micro Ducted & Micro Open to race around our tracks designed with our standardized gates, flags and obstacles designed by the FPV Canada team. Compete for points over multiple events to make it to the Canadian Micro Drone Championships and the chance to be crowned the best micro drone racing pilot in Canada!
