Georgia Tech Scores Big Win On Saturday
Georgia Tech Wins The First Collegiate Drone Racing National Championship
A huge congratulation is in order for Georgia Tech. Over the weekend the college participated and won the first- ever Collegiate Drone Racing National Championship. Purdue University was the host of this premier collegiate event, with the participation of twenty-six universities in total.
According to the article published on The Exponent, the event brought in more than $15,000 worth of equipment and prizes, an impressive amount for a first-time event.
“It was a fantastic event,” Tyler Landers, president of the Purdue Drone Club said, in a press release.
The races went off on Saturday without a hitch. Forty-eight participating pilots, all equipped with their homemade drones, took to the field. While the reported 19- 20 MPH winds proved to be a challenge, they were no match for these talented young pilots.
Landers said, “It was a bit windy, but I think everyone had a good time. It was great for Purdue to host the first ever. Congratulations to Georgia Tech they had a great day today.”
