Flying BBQ - DRONEMASTERS Delivery Challenge

Goal of DRONEMASTERS is to promote civilian use of drones and to arouse enthusiasm for automated mobility. The DRONEMASTERS Convention serves to demonstrate the capabilities of drones and raise ideas for new applications. Under the DRONEMASTERS Delivery Challenge the manufacture Aibotix together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics will be presenting an automatic load handling system for drones DelivAIRy fresh from our Flying BBQ.

The the event is free but the entry to the property is permitted only to registered visitors. Therefore we ask you to register. Among all registered visitors we will draw 100 sausages (classic & vegan) from Flying BBQ . Be one of the first people to get delivered a sausage with a drone. :-)

We look forward to a happy Sunday!

FPV Racing and Happy Hovering

Just as last year we are bridging the gap to sport and hobby. We will bring spectacular FPV-Racers to the start and after the drone marathon we will leave the tricky course to the Racers and hobby pilots.

Who wants to join the FPV Race please contact the race organizer Lieven :-)

Please understand that only pre-registered participants are allowed to fly. A registration via Eventbrite as a visitor is required. On the day of the event a registration is not possible.
