Boston Drone Racing

FPV Drone Racing and Hacking Club in Boston


Boston Drone Racing is a first-person view (FPV) UAV racing club founded in 2017 at Boston University. This club was initially created to find other pilots and expose others to this very addicting sport. The club is currently focused around racing in the tiny whoop and micro classes due to the limited space available to us in the city. We are currently looking for sponsors to support the club. Please contact us by E-mail if intersted.

Hack Nights

Boston Drone Racing hosts hack nights for members to work on repairs and drone racing related projects. Hack nights bring members together to share, learn and get handles on experience with the engineering and science of drones. Projects include open source radio transmitters, and custom racing drones.


Everyone is welcome! To get started you'll need to get setup with a tiny whoop class FPV racing drone, radio transmitter, FPV goggles, and lots of batteries! Check out our Getting Started wiki to learn more. Stop by at one of our weekly meetings or hit us up on Slack if you have any questions.


We meet every Thursday night for races and hack nights. Most meet ups take place in the Boston University Computer Science building. Check our Slack channel for the most current up-to-date information on meetings. Details change often due to availablity of flying spots. Hope to see you there!
