Ottawa DroneFest 2015
Saturday, August 29th, 10AM


DroneFest is a family friendly event where we educate, build, and fly multi­rotor helicopters, also known as drones.

FPV Race & Free Fly

Requires skill & precision

The Ottawa Cup Race is a classic race event. The only difference is that it is flown in a First Person View (FPV).

Learn to Fly

No drone? No problem

There will be two designated areas for getting your hands on a drone and learning how to fly from an experienced pilot.

Food & Shuttle Bus

Great food and shuttle service

There will be a BBQ available with great eats that won’t break the bank as well as a shuttle from Makerspace North.

FPV Race & Free Fly

A classic race to determine the best.

The Ottawa Cup is a classic race event. The only difference is that it is flown in a First Person View (FPV). Pilots wear goggles or look at a screen showing a live stream of what the drone sees via its camera feed instead of looking at the drone itself. Requiring skill, precision, and a strong stomach, FPV is quickly becoming the standard for racing.

Learn How to Fly

Learn how to fly a drone with Ottawa's best.

Learn to fly in our netted tent. There our pilots can teach you the basics out on a micro drone that’s safely inside a netted area. There’s also a field where you can try out the bigger and badder X5. Our skilled pilots will walk you through the basics of controlling the fast but forgiving Syma X5. You be surprised how easy it is!

Food and Shuttle Bus

We'll feed you and get you a shuttle to Oz Dome.

There will be a BBQ available with great eats that won’t break the bank. There will also be access to the Oz Dome fully licensed restaurant. There will also be a free shuttle bus leaving from Makerspace North located at 250 City Centre Ave. The exact meeting spot will be on the second floor parking lot at the rear of the complex at Bay 216, right in front of the Makerspace North sign.
