CNY Drones MultiGP Chapter   (MultiGP.com registration/create a profile)

RACING & STEM?

We use races as a hook. A fast-paced, exciting hook.  MultiGP has opened the door for great activities that spark student & adult interest in drone technology.   Speak to a racer & learn all the skill that goes into racing on & off the field.  Many local racers are CNY Drones mentors who see the value in sharing with the community.

  • Information on our STEM-focused programs are available at all events!  
  • Look for our roving mentors!

OUR CHAPTER HISTORY

In 2017, we’ve partner with the Town of Cicero NY Parks & Recreation set up a MultiGP Time Trial Track and events at their Gateway Park.     For 2018 we moved to the Town of Sullivan along with the Parks & Recreation Director, Peter Bardou.  Peter believed in us from day 1 & we know we can count on him & his staff for great events!   August 2018 Race & STEM Event  – Facebook Photo Album

NEON RACES @SUNY POLY

SUNY AMA brought outdoor races to SUNY Polytechnic Institute’s Utica Campus in Fall of 2017.  Check out the NEON Night Races!

In addition to outdoor events, we’re teaming up with SUNY AMA for indoor events – races & tech meets  –  in the Utica area (Utica JCC & SUNY Poly) to support & grow Tiny Whoop class drone owners.  Want to join in?  Contact us to get on our Text Notification List as some events may be set up last minute!

INDOOR RACING

In 2017, we partnered with the Jewish Community Center of Utica to provide test out new concepts and provide regular indoor events.    Our Friday Night Flights (tech meets) include racing opportunities posted & emailed to MultiGP Chapter members.  Continued interest will help us set future dates!

 

Joining our local chapter networks you with others in our community.  We think it’s a pretty important component to local growth.
