New drone regulations wind in the sails for racers, hobbyists

  • Nayak is among thousands of drone pilots and hobbyist drone users whose hopes of flying and racing their drones have been rekindled with the implementation of India’s Drone Rules 2021.
  • Earlier, budding drone racers would also need to seek permission from the local police to fly their drones for practice, as would colleges and educational institutions that wanted to host drone racing events.
  • Karan Kamdar, chief executive officer of drone manufacturing company 1 Martian Way and founder of the Indian Drone Racing League, believes that the new rules will enable holding more drone racing events in the country and help drone racers import parts and equipment.
