Yesterday 10 pilots and tons of spectators turned out at the New Hampshire Techfest to have a race and show off the drones to kids and families attending the event. The morning was full of practice runs and course adjustments, with races happening in the afternoon. 3 full 5 lap races were held, with 3, 4, and 4 participants in each race. A great time was had by all!

Yvonne, the event coordinator for the Techfest, sent along a thanks:

I really want to Thank you and the USDRA for coming to do his demo. SO many folks were talking about your event and that included my good friend – an 80 year old MIT emeritus professor- who honestly said- I want one of those! Your group was very professional and put a good face on responsible drone usage!
