The format of this competition is richer and more innovative, and it is getting closer to the youth and the school community. The emerging FPV drones combine entertainment, safety, education and competition. Compared with previous simple games, it is more team spirit, more emphasis on cooperation, and more entertaining.
Young players gallop on the field
Owning a remote-controlled aircraft is a childhood dream of many people. Today, our teenagers can not only realize their dream of flying to the sky, they can also compete with their peers in the arena and even win glory for the country in the international arena. Educational FPV drones and racing traversing machines are becoming more and more popular among young people. UAVs are not only toys and entertainment, but also emerging sports events that integrate aviation technology, competitive sports and smart development.
In this competition, there are many young faces, and the student group accounts for a large proportion. Xia Heng, the first in the master group, is a 15-year-old Suzhou boy. Since last year, drones have been included in the evaluation criteria of professional athletes as an emerging scientific and technological sports, and more and more young people have joined the ranks of drone racing. This time, the youngest contestant-Wu Qiuyan, 6 years old, from Suzhou, is a cute little girl who saw her father practice FPV drones. Zhang Zhijing, a 10-year-old girl from Wuxi, also fell in love with drones under the influence of her father. After finishing homework every night, Dad used a hula hoop and his arm to simulate obstacles in the bedroom and practiced for half an hour. She also won multiple second prizes. Shi Jingtian, an 11-year-old boy from Wuxi, won the youth championship this time. He has been exposed to drones since he was 8 years old and has made rapid progress.
The first inspirational group for the disabled
In this year’s competition, a disabled group was also set up, which was the first time in a domestic FPV drone competition. Zhang Yu from Hechi, Guangxi is a wheelchair family. His feet cannot move and his fingers are deformed. “I am 42 years old and I have liked model airplanes since I was a child.” Because of his disability, he could not work and could only live on a minimum guarantee. Because he had to find something to do, he picked up his childhood dream. Many friends gave him equipment, and his cousins also supported him in sports. During training, because it was troublesome to pick up the dropped drone while sitting in a wheelchair, he generally didn’t dare to let the machine fly too far. Later, his family bought him an electric wheelchair to facilitate his travel. Drones often fall into problems. Small problems need to be repaired by themselves. Because of his deformed hands, it is very difficult for him to twist screws and other fine movements. It takes him 20 minutes to do things that others can accomplish in one minute. He has been hoping to squeeze into the top 18 in the country. Zhang Yu had always participated in competitions with normal people before and won the third place in Guangxi Province three times.
International level contestants

According to reports, pilots from six countries including the United States, France and Brazil came to participate in this drone competition. However, Kong Haisen said that the gap between domestic players and international players is actually getting smaller and smaller, and the level of competition can even surpass them.
