South Africa’s Drone Racing League brought to you by Inspire Africa. We have partnered with AESA (the African Electronic Sports Association) - to launch a competitive drone league for schools.

IDL consists of four racing categories

Virtual Drone Racing League

Compete in a virtual environment using the DRL Simulator, a highly accurate racing drone flight simulator that allows pilots to build their own virtual race drones to best suit the track of the month.

DJI Tello Racing

This category tests Tello flying skills by racing through a series of obstacles as one try to set the best time and claim the spot as the DJI Tello racing champion.

DJI Tello Coding Challenges

Combining logical problem solving skills and quick thinking we have our Tello Coding Challenges where students will need to complete the challenge of coding their Tello drones to fly a set out flight path as quickly as possible.

Indoor FPV Micro Drone Racing

Going full throttle with these tiny flying machines! The real test of flying skills as flyers race against other drone racers to compete for the crown of IDL Drone Champion.
