Drone Race Day with Southwest Pod Racing!


Watch FPV drone racing by members of Southwest Pod Racing and others. Learn about racing drones and talk to pilots and technical experts about this fascinating new airsport and innovative form of flight.

Drone racing is a highly competitive and thrilling experience. Pilots fly quad-copter drones through gates and around flags or other obstacles at high speed. The drones they fly are agile and fast, and pilots steer them by wearing first-person view (FPV) goggles that display a live video image transmitted from the drone itself. Visitors will also be able to watch this in-flight video on big screen TVs!

Admission is free to Drone Racing Day, which will be held weather-permitting. Food Truck fare will be available for purchase, and entry by race spectators to the museum’s exhibitions and Tim Anderson 4-D Theater is also free.
