In a sport that looks more sci-fi than NASCAR, flying drones has taken off across the United States. Addison’s Cavanaugh Flight Museum will celebrate the fun and festivities of drone racing on Saturday, February 20, when they host the Drone Wars III at Cavanaugh Flight Museum. These indoor races, which will be hosted in an 11,000 aircraft hangar, showcases drones competing head to head on a precision 3-D obstacle course.
In each heat, the winning drone will be the one which crosses the finish line first. The carefully crafted, netted course includes hoops, pylons, bridges, turns and slaloms. There are three classes for entries: beginner, intermediate and expert. Trophies will be awarded for first through third place in each class. Registration can be made by contacting Cavanaugh Flight Museum.
