EDRL Drone Racing League

Race beyond the limits

Anchor 1

EDRL Drone Racing brings competetive FPV flying to Baltics and Finland in a world class scale! Drone racing involves participants controlling fast flying carbon-fibre quadcopters that go head to head on a track and naturally, the fastest one wins. The quadcopters are equipped with cameras, which send the live feed to the goggles that the pilot is wearing. In this way that the pilot can control the quad with precision through the gates and the obstacles. The racing speed can be up to 200km/h. To be able to control his drone on a track filled with obstacles, the pilot needs to have lighting fast reflexes, excellent piloting skills and super tight nerves.

EDRL Drone Racing League is the premiere Estonian drone racing series. Participants from all Baltic countries and Finland will be racing throughout a series of  events to compete for the overall win. Racing drones that can speeds up to 200 km/h, are piloted by professionals, using wireless on-board cameras (FPV - first person view). Using video goggles, this gives pilot the perspective of being inside a drone.

Pilots compete on circuit made from different obstacles and to win the race pilot has to complete the biggest amount of laps. Since the race is only two minutes long and the pilots have to navigate around three obstacles every second, this requires perfect reflexes and leaves no margin for errors. 


Please note the following rules are a subject to change depending on venue, number of pilots or other conditions at a specific event. 


Every pilot will have no less than 8 attempts to qualify for top 18 spots in the ranking table in order to make it to the finals.

Each qualification is two minutes long, and only the best overall result will count in the ranking table. Result are ranked by amount of laps completed within two minutes + time to complete the last lap.


At the end of qualifications top 18 pilots are divided to A, B, C, etc finals and the finals will be raced from lowest to highest. In each final top two pilots will rise to next final, until A final, where the pilots will race for the podium. A and B final rounds will have 3 heats each where each heat will give points as following: 1st place: 4 points, 2nd place 3, 3rd place 2 and last place 1. The points are used to determine the ranks to bump or final result.
