Drone racing is a fairly young sport, rapidly gaining momentum all over the world.
Copter racers are already considered official athletes, and drone racing has become an official sports discipline included by the Ministry of Sports of Russia in the All-Russian Register of Sports.
The pilots of St. Petersburg enjoyed the hot weather and an even hotter racing!
The most experienced pilots of Russia came to the Dinamo stadium to choose the leader of this stage.
The key objectives were as follows:
