Press Release: PCSV THRUST WORLD DRONE PRIX UPDATE
Thrust UAV Drone Team in Dubai Crashes in Final Qualifying Round
Boise, Idaho, March 10th— PCS Edventures! Inc., (PCSV) a leading provider of K-12 Science and Engineering (STEM) programs and leader in the design and manufacturing of precision technology for drone racing and robotics today announced an update on the progress of the Thrust UAV drone racing team currently in Dubai competing in the World Drone Prix.
Although successfully completing the first day of qualifying flights in a course that saw 22 teams drop from the roster on Monday, Team Falcon crashed on Tuesday in Dubai with only two qualifying laps remaining.
EJ Duarte, Director of R&D for the Thrust group, said, “We are thrilled that we were able to participate in the World Drone Prix, and our pilot, Jose Vela, performed as a true professional. Unfortunately, our team-mate that was bringing our full race kit was delayed two days due to a visa technicality and Jose was forced to fly all the qualifiers in dated gear. If he’d had our new high performance Riot on hand the results might have been different. Even so, just having our team and the Riot in Dubai for this event is historic.”
Jose Vela, the lead pilot for the Falcons, said “The course was tough and the competition in Dubai this week is incredible! I’m excited to be here all week showing off the performance capabilities of the new Riot to all the FPV racing enthusiasts that are gathered here. The Riot is a remarkable racer, truly a thrill to fly – I look forward to another opportunity to race it in the near future.”
Todd Hackett, PCS Edventures! CEO said “We’re disappointed that we didn’t make it those last two laps, but our mission in Dubai this week is still on – we’re introducing what we consider to be the number one racing drone in the world to racing enthusiasts from all over. The reaction we are getting is positive and we look forward to seeing the Riot in mass production very soon.”
