I hope we can achieve good results!"
the carnival makes you addicted to flying hands
in addition to the fierce and exciting events on the ground, another highlight of this event is the "World Championships drone theme Carnival" held in the central square of the Universiade Center Stadium. According to Ding Dongmei, general manager of jiazhaoye sports industry (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd., the carnival takes "UAV" as the theme, and mainly creates multiple activity areas such as UAV display area, flight experience area, flight challenge area and UAV aerial photo display area. "The purpose of holding this carnival is to let the public know, but if there is insufficient supplement, it can't keep the pressure on drone racing and popularize knowledge. At the same time, ordinary people can also experience the world of 'flying hands' and see drones from their perspective."
it was seen at the scene that the VR immersive flight experience and UAV flight challenge area attracted the attention of many citizens, especially children. Citizen Wang Gang told: "it's cool. The original UAV competition is so cool and exciting. I thought it was just flying around faster than speed. The original technical requirements are so high." Maxiaoli, a citizen who came to experience with her children, said: "I feel that Shenzhen is really international. Recently, I have been able to contact such cutting-edge sports. This activity vividly and interestingly spread the knowledge related to racing UAVs, and my son and I have broadened our horizons."
it is understood that the carnival will continue to be open to the public from 9:00 to 21:00 on the 3rd and 4th
