Element of the Event
 
 
BANGKOK ATTACKER
"Bangkok Attacker" Thailand's Top Pilot
"Bangkok Attacker" Thailand's Top Pilot Thailand’s First Drone Night Race in the heart of Bangkok.
Unmanned aircrafts or “Drone”, spider-shaped remote control airplanes might have been perceived only as high-tech filming equipment. However, “Drone” possesses many secret skills and is coming into our daily lives bit by bit, because they can be anything from just a toy to a surveillance aircraft for map generation.

Today we are walking closer to the “Drone” by getting to know the “Drone Racing”.

Drone Racing is the new air racing sport that comes with excitement in every second. It is a new sport for speed and challenge lovers as they have to mix multiple skills such as controlling, virtual navigation, and modification to have their drones speed up and fly towards barriers in the shortest period of time. What is more exciting is the live camera from Drone Racing, while competing at high speed as audiences can get the camera view similar to those of racers, just like they are sitting in that drones!

The "Bangkok Attacker" Thailand's Top Pilot competition is the first gathering of all drone racers in LED Night Race stadium. The organizer will stream live feeds on the large LED screen for real-time excitement in every movement shot in the first Drone Night Race in Thailand. The racing venue is located in Quartier Avenue, G Floor, The Emquartier shopping complex. It has been designed in a long-shaped rectangle which psychologically challenges racers since their first sights. They have to navigate their drones through five barriers including the Bridge Link that connects The Glass Quartier and The Helix Quartier while racers must fly their drones back and forth hence this requires advanced controlling skills. There is a long racing way that they can speed their drones, thus increasing their challenges.

The new state-of-the-art timing system from Team Black Sheep, an innovation specialist in FPV (Drone Racing), will be installed to increase excitement and challenging in the first-ever international standard drone racing in the country. This is also a pre-event for the major Thailand Drone Grand Prix 2017 which will be held later this year.

Race Disputes

1. Missed Gate or Flag Pilots must fly through all gates. If a gate is missed, it is the responsibility of the pilot to safely taxi around (please avoid oncoming drones) and go through the gate. If a pilot misses a gate or cuts a flag turn, that run is disqualified and the pilot receives a DNF. During qualifying heats or time trials. If a gate has fallen down caused by wind or hit by a drone that heat will rerun. On race heats all runs will continue (fly over fallen gates). Pilots are not allowed to fly 2x higher then a race flag, pilots will have to turn back around the flag or will be consider a DNF.
2. Flying Out of Bounds Scored as a DNF. No laps are tallied.
3. Aircraft Damaged / Not Able to Race If a Pilot notifies the Race Director prior to the start of the heat that he cannot race, the race director can bump the pilot to a new heat for reruns. Race Director can deny request for any reason. Pilots will get no more than one of these types of reruns.
4. Not Ready in Time At the time where the race director calls the next race heat, a 4 minute timer should be started. The purpose of this clock is not to give pilots 4 minutes to get to the line but instead to give the race director authority to start a race without a pilot once the 4 minute mark has been reached. The race does not have to start in 4 minutes but this provides the race director with a fair measurement tool for this decision.
