When the tail glows red, it appears as if it appears in the movie "Star Wars"Pod racerIt looks like one scene.

The race is over. They taught me a flight with my friends.

Multicopter performance is progressing on a daily basis. As a next step of obtaining stable flight, development has been undertaken to apply it to various uses, and you can see how the cargo is raised and lowered in the following movie.

Also,Linux FoundationIs the center of the open source project to develop basic software for Drone "Dronecode Project"Has been launched. Manufacturers from around the world and more than 1000 developers are working on the development of multi-copiers and airplanes, and it seems that there is no doubt that drones will further develop in the future.

Although the venue where Drone flew freely at the beginning, this is a private property that gained permission to occupy for racing, of course, paying respect to the member who worked and "NoComp StadiumWhat is named. It is a flight in the forest where trees line up, and it seems that the time zone in which flight is possible is separated from 12 o'clock noon to 14 o'clock noon.

It is a drawn race that seems to be well-accepted as entertainment if the situation is set, but will it be the day to show spreading in Japan as well?
