We are finally ready to push this bit of news out to the community at large, albeit a little close to the event. We have a 1,400 acre ranch down here near Santo, TX where the land owner has put together multiple drone based events under the name Lone Star Drone Rodeo!
There are three segments we will be sporting, a drone cage (for those new or wanting to combat each other), Drone Racing hosted by both the DallasFPV and the N.E. Dallas Speed Addicts for a MultiGP regional qualifier and finally a drone based Search and Rescue event hosted by the North Texas Drone User Group with dozens of missions designed to interface with existing professional ground based SAR groups. We will also have a discounted course hosted by UAS Academy specifically designed and certified to teach SAR drone operators how to effectively plan and execute missions in a SAR environment.
This event has been almost a year in the making and what we would love is for you to form a team and come on down to Texas! If you are participating in the SAR portion the entry fee is waved! You can also camp ($5.00/night) on site or we have a list of nearby places you can stay. We will have policemen, firemen, company presidents, SAR personnel as well as every drone racer and drone SAR pilot in the area attending! Come to see it or come to network!
If you are more of the video type, here is a story that aired on the event. Sponsorship slots are still open, call Martin at 940-452-3004 for a sponsorship/vendor form, if you are a SAR group please contact us to participate at 980-333-2301 because the more the merrier!
