I wonder how many folks will experiment with techniques to take over the competition? And make sure to take a look at the two contest rules. ;-)

LVL1′s first Quadcopter Ultimate Arial Combat Competition (QUACC):

This is it, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: LVL1′s first Quadcopter Ultimate Arial Combat Competition (QUACC). This is STRICTLY limited to 16 competitors, so sign up now.

Don’t want to compete? All comers are welcome!

On December 21st, at 6pm, LVL1 is hosting its first ever Quadcopter Destruction Competition!  Test your aerial skills in the ring of battle in this single-elimination tournament of destruction! For $40, you get a quadcopter, and entry into this one-of-a-kind competition.

Here’s how it works: On December 14th, you’ll receive your Quadcopter (A Syma X1 Model).  You have 7 days to train up and modify your drone however you see fit. On the day of the competition, all competitors will be placed in a single elimination tournament. Before each round, a 3 foot crepe-paper streamer will be attached to your drone.  The match begins by a signal from the event organizer, and ends when one competitor’s quadcopter can no longer take flight, OR one competitor’s quadcopter runs out of battery power. If one quadcopter is rendered unable to take to the skies, the remaining quadcopter is the winner.  if both survive, the winner is the quadcopter with the longest streamer remaining.

Contest Rules:

  • The event organizers may disqualify any quadcopter at any time for any reason.
  • Any modifications applied to the quadcopter must pass the following test: “You must be willing to remain in the same room as the quadcopter if the controls are given to a psychopathic 12 year old.
