Meetings: Mondays in 120D

 

We race in the Youth Drone Sports Championship (YDSC), part of the HydraFPV Drone Racing League. Racing went virtual in mid-March using Velocidrone.

Washburn 10th grade rookie drone racers Mac “Big Mac” Hearn and Graham “FiZyxZ” Adleman won the AA teams bracket at the MN State High School Drone Racing Championship on 17 May 2020. They advanced to the AAA teams bracket, shown live on Fox Sports North, and posted their best times yet against some stiff veteran pilot competition.
