Come experience the real life video game that is Drone Racing! We are holding a national event which is open to spectators, and you can even try flying a drone yourself!

During breaks in the racing we will be holding $5 teaching and flying sessions so you can get yourself in the air, and experience how fun flying drones can be! We will have a range of DJI drones to try, so this is perfect for someone who is looking at getting into the drone photography scene.

When you're not flying yourself, there will be pilots racing their custom drones around a specially made track for the title of Ace Company Champion! They fly through virtual reality like goggles at super high speeds, around flags and gates that have been setup to test the skills and reflexes of all the pilots. There will be chances to put some goggles on, and ride along with the racers yourself!

Come along, try some drones, and spectate a high adrenaline, high speed emerging sport! Out in the beautiful Hamurana area of Rotorua, it's set to be a great day!

Who knows, you might even get hooked yourself!
