Safety is extremely important in racing drones, due to their high speed and sharp propellers. We take precautions to prevent injuries from occurring, but spectators and pilots must also be vigilant in ensuring their safety.
- A minimum of 30 metres between the track and people is always ensured, usually even more separation exists to account for pilots who fly wide.
- No one is allowed to be on the track area while racing is happening. Even if you crash, you must wait till all pilots have landed before you can retrieve your aircraft. If a dangerous situation arises, such as a fire, the race will be stopped.
- No one is to power their aircraft on while racing is happening. This prevents issues with interference occurring with RF links on both control and video. If you have issues with your video prior to the race starting, you must notify the race director immediately. If you need to test your aircraft, do it away from people and in between races.
- Failsafe on your aircraft must be correctly set to disarm. Land or RTH(return to home) failsafes are not acceptable for racing.
- Do not distract pilots while they are flying. Distractions can cause a pilot to not perform at their best, or worse, misjudge distances and crash.
