More About BMPR XI

A Great Spectator Air Sport, and Fun for All Ages!

BMPR XI includes racing, live video feeds, hands-on simulators, educational demonstrations, entry to the museum's exhibitions, and more!

 "Tiny Whoop" drones. Pint-sized versions of their quad-copter cousins, these drones may be small -- they fit in the palm of your hand -- but they are fast and fun! At BMPR XI, the Star Wars-inspired origin of "pod racing" will serve as the theme for the race. Pilots will attempt the Kessel Run, take on the Death Star, and try to survive an encounter with Star Killer Base. May the Force be with them! 

 More About BMPR

Inspired by the origin of SWPR's name, we call our series Balloon Museum Pod Racing. BMPR is an exciting, unique, and high-performance air sport experience for all ages. 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 are also able to watch this in-flight video on TV screens!
