World Drone Prix 2016 Dubai – Racer Setups

During World Drone Prix 2016 many different racers and setups were used. Due to the requirement of the frequency band (see W.O.R.D. Code) as well as the HD-video-system during the race, various things had to be considered. Many people – including myself – want to know what kind of setups were flown.

Now, within 2 weeks I was able to speak with some people of each team to get the setups together. My goal was to have the data comparable. For comparable data I had to annoy the people with all the detailed questions (sorry about that 🙂) so that one or the other dialog looked like that:

Jan Niemueller:

[…] Now I want to create a database with all setups (of the drones) of all teams from WDP. Can you give me the specs about your teams racers (Flightcontroller, Flightcontroller Software and Version, Power Distribution Board, FPV Camera, FPV Transmitter, FPV Antennas, OSD, Motors, Propellers, Goggles and Goggle Receiver, ESCs, Frame, Framesize, Battery, Radio Controller, Radio Receiver, LEDs Thanks in advance! Jan

This conversation were followed by many more, but everyone was friendly. Some did not respond. Many only after the 2nd or 3rd request of me. Most are just very busy and currently under stress. Thus, I decided to publish this list with that data I already have. As soon as I get new data, the list will continually be updated.

A lot of time was also spent considering how I can visualize the data best. It turned out quickly that WordPress is completely unsuitable for such a large list (horizontal). To make the comparison and the viewing as pleasant as possible, the decision to use Google Docs was made. Here we have the opportunity to work properly on most devices with the data. You can add a comment also with a right click if you have any change-requests or comments.

You can find the setup-list right here:
