Futaba, one of RC’s most respected radio manufacturers, joins with the biggest names in FPV drone racing at this year’s highly anticipated MultiGP RIOT International Open. The event, hosted by Rotor Riot and MultiGP, happens on August 9-13 at the AMA National Headquarters in Muncie, Indiana. Futaba is an event Platinum Sponsor and a featured sponsor of the Freestyle course, Track 4.
Members from the Rotor Riot team and Team Futaba will be on site. Meet, chat with and learn from the greats — including Futaba’s Johnny “Johnny FPV” Schaer, Nick “Wild Willy” Willard, Paul “Nurk” Nurkkala, Frank “RealEyez” Mainade, and Chris “CJHass” Hass — all in one place, at one time.
Futaba is hosting a “Charge & Chill” tent at the Freestyle course. Pilots and show guests can stop by to recharge their devices, relax on the loungers and enjoy a beverage. Charging stations will be available for all types of devices.
The lightning-fast racing takes place in eight different FPV flight zones spread across 1200 acres. Each zone will be set up for a specific style of flying, such as team racing, standard racing, freestyle and more. As many as 64 FPV pilots will be in the air at a single time!
Highlights will include an FAI-approved World Cup team race that pits the top international FPV teams against each other at breakneck speeds. Attendees can also look forward to a crash course gauntlet; many product giveaways and demos of new FPV technology; and educational FPV-related workshops.
