3D Robotics is proud to be a sponsor of Drone Prize 2014, a nationwide contest that brings hobbyists together to help make the world a better place. Winners of this contest will receive fabulous prizes, including a 3DR X8 copter!

This contest is designed to celebrate the democratization of UAV technology. According to, “the aerial perspective has been accessible only to those in power or with deep pockets.” Through this contest, the folks at droneprize would like to inspire innovators to develop drone applications that support “the common good” and elevate public perception of drones as tools for positive social change.

To enter the contest, you’ll need to use your drone to support your local community and film your mission. Semi-finalists will be flown to Portland to compete face to face. Check here to learn more about contest details.
