Update 14/08: Watch the recap video of the event: Parrot is attending the first US drone racing championships in the California State Fair in Sacramento.
During two days, over 100 of the world best pilots in the world are competing with the fastest machines we have ever seen.
Since the recent success of our Parrot official pilot “Pablo Sotes” at the FPV race 28 in France, we decided to make him race this main event for FPV pilots.
Always with its own racer based on the Bebop Drone, Pablo did 2 days of training next to top pilots like Ummagawd, Trappy, Charpu…
At the corner of the circuit, located in a football stadium, there is a special Parrot tent where the pilots are flying some « chasing » Bebop Drones into the races for capturing live aerial footage.
The Parrot Bebop is an amazing safe and light-weight flying camera, capable of capturing Full HD video with an incredible 3-axis digital stabilization. When used with a Pro version of the software, and with the Parrot SkyController, the Bebop provides a live HD stream that can be broadcasted to the internet.
The live footages are displayed on the local screens, and broadcasted to the net at http://dronenationals.com/live allowing spectators to watch the race from a FPV pilot perspective.
