WHAT: Running Aces Casino & Racetrack is teaming up with Hydra FPV, a drone racing entertainment startup, to bring a new racing event to Minnesota. Flying Aces will feature races throughout the night and will be a new, exciting experience for the entire family.
Spectators will have the chance to watch the “sport of the future” as the top ten pilots from the Twin Cities race glowing quadcopters over and around the track. Each pilot will wear goggles that show the drone’s view while racing; that visual will be live video streamed on the jumbotron so the crowd can have a first-person-view of the action in the sky.
Flying Aces will be the first major drone race ever held at a facility of this caliber in Minnesota. The event will feature drink & food specials, as well as prizes for guests who choose the winning pilots. There will be Show-N-Tell drones available for people to hold.
This event is open to the public and offers free admission and parking.
WHEN: Friday, September 21, 2018
6 – 9 p.m.
WHERE: Running Aces Casino & Racetrack
