The Club

South Gloucestershire Drone Club (SGDC) was established in August 2021. We are a friendly, dedicated group of FPV enthusiasts in the South Gloucestershire and Bristol area. We have club members based all over Bristol and the South West. Proudly racing 5 inch drones, wings and whoops in first person view. 

We cater to pilots of all abilities whether you are an absolute beginner or a seasoned pro.

Each year we have a number of events. Through the summer we host BDRA British qualifier events, MultiGP global qualifiers as well as twice weekly practice sessions. During the winter we host whoop events and 5 inch drone races on the YOSC flood lit track.

Our club membership currently sits around 25 people with a number of other non-members visiting for various events. The committee is comprised of 7 members.
