Giant Drones Invade Korea! Hadong Drone Super Race (하동 드론 슈퍼 레이스)

Team USA travels to Hadong South Korea for the Hadong Drone Super Race. Special thanks to DS-i for the spectacular hospitality, and MultiGP for helping with the logistics.

How did we end up in Korea? By being one of the Top 8 pilots able to attend from the Mega/X Class Race at the MultiGP International Open; where Drone Sports International flew the entire team out for a week! Spent the first half of the week participating in their Fantastic Match (환상적인 경기) with mini-quads, and when not doing that, was preparing our Mega/X Class rigs for battle to ensure they were ready to face the cruel mistress that is the ocean. In the end, South Korea took 1st and 2nd place, and the USA 3rd.

I'd like to give special thanks to everyone that helps keeps me in the air! If you haven't yet, go check them out, they all make or provide awesome products!
