First Person View racing is an exciting new sport that combines high-tech drones and high-speed racing. As this new sport continues to grow, beginners must understand the basics of building or purchasing a racing drone, understanding the hardware components, following safety procedures and knowing the current rules for competition. This presentation will introduce beginners to these basics concepts through an engaging presentation that will demonstrate how a basic racing drone and course is built using 3D printing, recycled materials and manufactured parts along with some of the skills that an amateur must develop before attempting their first competition. Participants will be able to examine the racing drones during this presentation but will not be permitted to race them.
