On July 4th, CamKix had the opportunity to sponsor a drone racing competition in Castroville, Texas. Organized by Droneport Texas, a group dedicated to advancing the unmanned aircraft systems industry in Texas and throughout the world, the race went off without a hitch and saw three lucky winners get prizes.
CamKix provided discounts, stickers and camera cleaning supplies to each race participant, as well as hats, bags and more swag to the winners. Droneport Texas awarded prizes the the top three winners: $1,500 for first place, $1,000 for second place and $500 for third place.
The winners are pictured below.
First place: Ivan Rodriguez
