FPV Drone Racing Comes to Sebring Expo with Hobbico Vusion Race Top drone pilots to compete for $5,000 in prizes!

Champaign, IL, January 18, 2017—FPV drone racing is roaring onto the airstrip at the Sebring Sport Aviation Expo January 25th-28th with an exclusive Spec Race featuring Hobbico’s RISE Vusion Extreme FPV Race Pack! The race runs in conjunction with the first ever MultiGP sanctioned drone race at an aviation event. The top FPV pilots from the main race will qualify to compete for the Hobbico-sponsored $3,500 prize purse on Saturday, January 28th.

The Vusion is the ideal FPV drone for the competition – not to mention for anyone venturing into the exhilarating world of First Person View racing. It’s the first injection-molded RTF 250-size racing drone to come with all essential FPV equipment included – and there’s no soldering or assembly required. Tactic FPV goggles, a high-quality LCD video monitor, and a 5.8GHz transmitter with eight Raceband channels are included in the package, so you’re race ready, instantly.

“What’s unique about the Vusion Spec Race is that it levels the playing field by enabling everyone to race with the same out-of-the-box-ready FPV drone,” said Hobbico Air Team Manager Josh Schiff. “It’s going to be a true test of skill in this Spec Race because it’s just you and your flying ability against other pros of the sport.”

Hobbico will be exhibiting the Vusion and other top drone models in the Drone Zone by the Race Entrance at the Sebring Sport Aviation Expo, running Jan. 25-28 in Sebring, FL. Stop by the booth to sign up to win a free RISE Vusion Kit. See you there!
