Pilots flying the qualifying heat will have a set amount of time to fly as many laps as possible. Pilot spotters will retrieve crashed drones to return to the pit for repair. A repaired drone may return to the race at the last designated re-entry point that was passed prior to crashing. The pilots with the highest number of total laps will advance to the semi-finals
Semi-final heats will consist four pilots at a time flying as many laps as possible in a predetermined amount of time. The top pilots with the highest number of laps will move on to the Finals.
Pilots in the Finals will fly as many laps as possible in a set amount of time. First, second and third place winners will be awarded a cash prize.
Pro Class Heat Times
Time designation of heats will be determined on the total number of Pro Pilots entering the race. The heat times may be up to a maximum of 10 minutes in total.
The amateur class pilots will fly a shorter easier course alongside pilots of a similar skill level. This is perfect for pilots with basic skills that are newer to drone racing. Race heats will consist four pilots flying the amateur course for a designated number of laps. Times will be recorded and posted on the Drone Wars website. Amateur Class will be limited based up on the number of Pro Class entries.
