World Cup contests are FAI second category events based on individual participation (no national team representing a NAC). Any person holding a valid FAI Sporting Licence or FAI Drone Permission can be eligible for the World Cup ranking.

Two Drone Racing World Cup contests may be organized every year for any country. For a country which extends over more than three time zones, one World Cup contest may be organized within each time zone of the country with a maximum of four events for the country.

There are actually 12 Drone Racing World Cup events from 9 different countries published on the FAI Calendar for the year 2022. This is far from the situation in which we were in 2019 (24 events from 19 countries) or in 2018 (22 events from 17 countries).

In that situation and in order to improve the interest of the Drone Racing World Cup, it has been decided for the 2022 World Cup ranking to consider for each competitor 3 events of different countries (instead 4 up to now). The Drone Racing World Cup rules have been modified consequently.
