About the race

The 2022 Drone Racing World Cup Hungary, the first Hungarian FPV (first person view) World Cup, will be held between 16-18 September 2022. The venue is the ZalaZONE university test track in Zalaegerszeg.

The competition is organized according to the rules of the International Air Sports Federation, FAI, in the framework of the Hungarian Air Sports Federation and the Hungarian Modelling Association.

The 2022 Drone Racing World Cup Hungary will be held at the ZalaZONE University track element. The functionality of this module is a miniature replica of the large test track. The entire track section will have 8500 m2 of asphalt surface and will have the most important dynamic track elements to allow for vehicle dynamics tests, especially at lower speeds, and an environment for targeted testing of automated and self-driving vehicles. The track element is enclosed by a safety net in compliance with international standards and serves as a safe venue for drone racing.

FPV racing drones

Multirotor high-speed FPV racing drones are characterised by extreme parameters.

On the one hand, the numbers are very small: the weight of a plane without battery is less than 250 g, the battery capacity is less than 2000 mAh, and the number of laps is only 3.

On the other hand, we are talking about very serious performances: acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 1.2-1.5 seconds, acceleration from a standing start of more than 12 g, speeds of 160-180 km/h on an average racetrack.
