About DCL

In the Drone Champions League, the world-best pilots compete against each other in attractive locations and in a new format focused on teamwork.Qualification races consist of time-trials where a team’s collective result determines where it will be placed for the final rounds. During the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds, two teams of four pilots compete in 3 heats. The first and second heats are called “single heat” as each race is 1 vs. 1. The winner gets 1 point for his team. Heat 3, or the “big heat”, is 4 vs. 4 where all 4 team pilots are flying. The winning team gets 1 point, a bonus of 2 points is given if 3 pilots from the same team finish in the top 3 positions. The team with the most points through 3 heats moves onto the next round. During Final round, there are 5 heats. Each pilot from each team competes in a “single heat” (total of 4 single heats) and the final heat is again a “big heat”.

Tech

For DCL, copters with the minimal weight of 700 grams, 4S power supply, Connex Prosight FPV system, TBS Crossfire RC, and GoPro Session HD cameras are prescribed. Based on these specific requirements, we have created an entirely new Rotorama Champion frame and we believe that we will be successful only in the races themselves but also in the best-frame competition. This state-of-the-art racing frame, along with technical details, is also available in our shop.

Did you know?

  • While testing, we broke several Connex antennas and managed to fix some of them. The we fixed antenna holder - now it should be tough enough :)
  • We are going to drive to Paris, because a plane would not be able to take of with all our stuff.
  • For the first race, we had to build 12 fully equipped copters, which took us about 100 hours.
