Are you ready to prove you're more than just FPV?  Do you have the skills to be a Drone Trials Master?


Join ASL and Maker Faire for 3 days of drone skill-based games and challenges, including obstacle courses, flying skill games, and the aerial sport that started it all - - drone combat.

FREE to enter.  All registered pilots receive free weekend passes for two people to Maker Faire, plus swag, parties, and maker-only events. ($170 value!).


Drone trials are a series of demanding games and competitions designed to challenge the world's best drone pilots.  Only the best will enter, but few will succeed.  Will any pilot be able to survive the gauntlet and emerge as the Drone Trials Master? 


Combat -  The original aerial sport of combat returns to San Mateo for a 4th consecutive year. Combat pilots and teams battle for aerial supremacy - and only the best survive. Do you have what it takes to design and fly a battle-ready combat drone? 

Rotor Derby  - Score points by flying your drone though a target gate, while multiple defender drones attempt to block your path.  Can you flip, maneuver and out-flank the defenders to score the most points?  Each pilot takes turns flying for points or defender.

Obstacle Course - Speed, accuracy and ninja-like nerves of steel are required to survive the gauntlet of ASL's aerial obstacle course.  Be prepared to fly forwards, backwards, up, down and through some of the most diabolical challenges ever faced by drone pilots.
