CNY Drones MultiGP Chapter (MultiGP.com registration/create a profile)
Developing our chapter opens the door for even more great activities that spark student and adult interest in drone technology. Racing & STEM? Speak to a racer & learn all the skill that goes into racing on and off the course. Many are CNY Drones mentors. Information on our STEM-centered programs is available at our races.
Drone enthusiasts can participate recreationally or competitively to be ranked for additional race tiers. We also want to add in some freestyle in between. BEST OF ALL – it’s FREE to join! So JOIN US & help make it all happen!
