The 2017 Championships are hosted by FPV Ottawa and will take place at our nation’s capital on October 13th, 14th & 15th. In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation, we felt that Ottawa was the perfect location for this year’s Canadian Championships and worked hard to have drone racing be recognized as one of the official Canada 150 partners.
This years championship event will consist of two of the top world events in drone racing, The FPV Canada CDN2017 and the IDRA Challengers Cup, Eastern Canadian Competitions as well as workshops, presentations and hands on experience with micro-drones.
Find out what the rave is all about and feel like a kid again.
FPV Canada drone racing league is kicking off the 2017 season with qualifying events across the country beginning in May through September. Pilots will gain points throughout the season, and the top 64 will advance to the Canadian Drone Nationals 2017. The top 3 Canadian pilots will be crowned the best in the nation and represent Canada internationally.
The IDRA, CFDR and FPV Canada have teamed up to bring international racing opportunities to Canadians. All Canadian pilots will have the opportunity to gain points in the International Drone Racing Association (IDRA) Challengers Cup.
The Challengers Cup is a semi-professional series of the International Drone Racing Association (IDRA). By sanctioning, supporting, and compiling races around the world into a collective series, IDRA focuses on growing smaller race organizers and the drone community.
Most importantly, the Challengers Cup establishes a clear ladder to become a professional pilot in the IDRA Drone Racing Series. The Challengers Cup will, via human endeavor, determine the future "challengers" to the pro-series.
We continue to focus on the education and technology of drones and most importantly, hands on experience. Attendees will get face to face with the myriad of different uses and emerging technologies ranging from robotics, humanitarian aid, modernized farming to photography.
The Exhibition will feature;
Have you ever wanted to learn how a drone works, or why so many people are using them? The Education Zone is the place for you. There will be activities for all ages, as well as special prizes and giveaways.
