Boston Globe Article on the USDRA and Drone Racing

The Boston Globe recently contacted the USDRA and interviewed us on the state of drone racing in the US, check it out!

Dave Shevett is chairman of the US Drone Racing Association, an unaffiliated group based in New England. One day, he stumbled across an FPV drone-racing video online and was hooked. Not long after, he formed the USDRA. The group is small, but has been working with clubs in the Northeast to help set guidelines.

USDRA July 2015 Race Day 6
We had a fantastic race day on Sunday, with 6-8 pilots flying, and 20 or so excited spectators. The course was great, with lots of high speed flying. We will be modifying the air gates for the next event to make them higher (the number of broken props on the gates was… impressive!)
