New Addition: 2015 US Drone Nationals

In July 2015, at the California State Fair, the first US National Drone Racing Championships brought together over 120 pilots to compete flying multirotors with First-Person-View.  Scot Refsland, of the Drone Sports Association, planned the competition and has recently donated a large collection of items to tell the event’s story.
