    Hey fellow drone flyers, I have been looking into a possible business idea its in the very early stage and i need help from you all.
    What i need is an idea of how many people in the drone community would be willing to pay a membership annually for use of a drone racing track fully lit with led arches etc. Indoor so all year round flying. There would be merchandise, spare parts for onsite repairs, charging stations, drink(non alchoholic), food, and general meetup socialise area.
    This would also include lessons/ training for the beginner at an additional cost to cover drone rent and repairs etc.
    There is so many things that can be done, leagues, sponsors, educating the beginner and general public i am in the uk but as this grows i believe it could well become massive.

    Have you researched the existing racing leagues and their facilities?

    This can give you an idea of the investment needed and other business details.

    Hey n017rw i am in the middle of it all as we speak, i am in an understanding that to get this off the ground it could potentially cost mega money as we are not talking about a small area, i am trying to involve as much as possible to bring costing down, lol i maybe hitting above my weight here but i like a challenge.
    Thanks for the feedback and anything you would like to add im very willing to take onboard.
