Bengaluru Tech Summit 2018 in association with IDRL brings you India’s biggest and most extravagant drone racing competition till date. The top drone racing pilots in the country face off in this battle of the titans to prove their racing skills in front of huge audiences at the Bengaluru Tech Summit 2018.

Drone Racing is the next frontier of high speed racing sport that is bringing drones to the masses with an excitement and innovation unlike anything seen before. Drone Racers fly their drones at more than 160 km/hr through a live video feed sent from the drones directly to the pilot’s goggles, an adrenaline rushing feeling that makes the pilot feel like sitting in the drone’s cockpit.

At the Bengaluru Tech Summit 2018 from November 29th to 30th, 2018, drone racing will take the form of an extravagant night drone racing track as top pilots compete for the biggest prize in the history of drone racing in India on the grandest track ever built. Be there or be square!
