Game of Drones: 3rd Flight, one of country’s biggest drone competition

Game of Drones: 3rd Flight

It was my first time to ever fly a drone for the record and I enjoyed and, I thought it was hard and I'm a bit scary if the drone would ever fly so high away that we wouldn't ever see but then again it was a smooth and solemn fly that I wish I stayed longer and explored how to fly a drone more. It is Ortigas Malls' much-awaited annual Game of Drones, now on its 3rd Flight.

  3. There are lots of races and competitions. Iba ibang lugar not just Manila, also Iloilo, Cebu, Dinagat Island, and a lot more. There are also races for different quad classes from the standard 5inch you watched down to the whoop/micro class which is about as big as your hand lang. The only drone competition *you know of*, NOT the only competition in the PH.

  4. "the country’s biggest and only drone competition"

    Dumbest non-researched post in the history of stupidity.

    Thanks THANOS for erasing every other BETTER drone race here.

  5. We can all fault the blogger for lack of research. For me, that's fine. They're just bloggers. These people are more concerned about clicks than writing quality pieces. What really pisses me off is that the organizer of this event didn't even ask for revisions. I'm sure he's aware that FPV competitions have been held all over the country since 2015, and how difficult it is to organize events like this. By claiming that this race was the ONLY competition held in the Philippines is a blatant insult to our whole FPV community. He may not have written this sorry excuse for an article, but by letting it publish as it is now makes him as guilty as the person who wrote it.
