First-Person-View (FPV) drone racing is a worldwide air sport, and through the Balloon Museum Pod Racing (BMPR) series, spectators will now be able to experience it in Albuquerque!
BMPR is an exciting and unique air sport spectator experience for all ages. These events include racing, live video feeds, hands-on simulators, educational demonstrations, entry to the museum's exhibitions, food truck fare and much more!
Drone racing is highly competitive and thrilling to watch. Pilots fly quad-copter drones through gates and around flags or other obstacles at high speed. The drones are agile and fast, and pilots steer them by wearing first-person view (FPV) goggles that display a live video image transmitted from the drone itself.
General public spectator admission to a BMPR event is included with payment of your regular museum admission fee.
