Hello Pilots!

2020 is proving to be the best year for Tampa Drones yet! We were at the Synapse Summit 2020 earlier this week, we have a new partnership with AMRoC Fab Lab, Cyborg Fest 2020 is coming up and today I am announcing a new homeschool initiative! So lets get started…

This past Tuesday, AMRoC had a booth at the Synapse Summit at the Amaile Arena. If you don’t know, the AMRoC Fab Lab is comprised of several sponsors who share a common goal. Our goal (Tampa Drones) is to introduce drones in a unique way by sharing and teaching kids about the technology. Other sponsors who are involved, each bring their own unique offering. Whether it be robotics, wood working or podcasts, each sponsor has a passion for what they do and a desire to teach and inspire others.

If you homeschool your kids, you understand how narrowing the topics are. Being that my wife and I homeschool our 6 year old, we could introduce something new to the mix. Our homeschool group will start in March as a bi-monthly meet at AMRoC. We will be hosting an Open House on Tuesday February 25th at 3pm. You are invited to come learn about the program and enjoy FREE pizza and soda!

Have you heard about Cyborg Fest yet? What is it? Cyborg Fest aims to celebrate the bond between man and machine. This is the first festival of its kind in Florida! There will be food and craft vendors, prizes and giveaways! 102.9FM The Mermaid will be broadcasting LIVE from the event!

Want to join in on the racing? Cash prizes are available for 1st place in each category! If you want to race, you must register either on our website or at the event. Pre-register at a discounted rate or pay full price at the event! ($30) Discounted registration rates close next Friday! If you want to race your drone at a discounted rate, see this post to get set up! ALL races are OPEN CLASS! No battery cell or frame size restrictions! We will split pilots up between Amateur and Pro and we will have head to head racing, a drag race and a new type of race which will be revealed at the event. There WILL be crashes…. Do NOT miss the carnage!

Welp, thats all folks! As always, Fly Safe!
