Dialsmith Sponsors TechFestNW Drone Challenge


This Sunday, as part of the TechFest NW festival, Dialsmith is sponsoring a unique competition and we’ll be equipping a judging panel with our Perception Analyzer dials to score the event. Here’s a description of the competition from the TFNW website:

We’re bringing PDX’s best drone pilots together into the Drone Cage to battle head to head in our skill testing obstacle course. 10 pilots will enter, but only one will emerge victorious and walk away with our fabulous prize package (we’ll have prizes for individual accomplishments as well). Each challenge event tests pilot’s skills in navigation, precision, calm under pressure and time management.

What? You don’t know any Drone pilots? Meet them in real life as they explain how they got started in this fascinating and exciting hobby, how they built their machines.

Pilots will be scored on each challenge event as well as receiving a “Overall” score. A scoreboard will display results in real-time so onlookers and fans keep pace with the action.
