Check out the FAI World Drone Racing Championships logo

The FAI is delighted to share with you the logo for the first-ever FAI World Drone Racing Championships, which will take place in Shenzhen, China later this year.

Its dynamic design echoes the speed and excitement of drone racing, while incorporating an element of Chinese calligraphy that illustrates the proud traditions of the 2018 host country.

Careful thought also went into picking the colours, which were chosen to reflect the history and culture of the location for this historic event.

In Chinese symbolism, the colour red represents vitality and good luck – making it a very popular colour in China.

About the FAI World Drone Racing Championships

Organised by FAI member the Aero Sports Federation of China (ASFC), the 1st FAI World Drone Racing Championships will be held at the Shenzhen Universiade Center Stadium from November 1 to 4, 2018.

The four-day event, which is limited to competitors selected by their country or by FAI, will bring together drone racers from all over the world, giving them a platform to show off their considerable skills while pitting their drones against other top-flight pilots.

FAI medals and diplomas will be awarded to the competitors placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each of the different classifications: overall, women, junior and national team. 

The scoring system will be supplied by FAI Global Technical Partner Noosphere, and will use their eNavigator system for real-time scoring both on big screens in the stadium and online.
