#DMC18. The most beautiful open air drone festival in the world
On 26 August 2018, industrial drones ascended again above the racing track in Berlin. In the world's only marathon for industrial drones, teams from Germany and Europe came together for the ultimate challenge. Built for applications in industry and agriculture, the DRONEMASTER Dronathon challengers have to master the classic marathon distance of 42,195 kilometers.
This year, Team Copterproject from Hamburg took first place at the Dronathon. The winning team covered the entire marathon distance in 56:41 minutes.
Before the event of the DRONEMASTERS Convention, drone workshops for kids between the ages of 10 and 15 have taken place again this year. The DRONEMASTERS Junior Academy opens up access to drones and drone races in five-day workshops. Among other things, the juniors get to know different drone systems, get their own drone, which they can adapt and program, and build their own race track.
