Pilots are the permanent participants of the Grand Prix 2020-2021 and Rostec Drone Festival 2020-2021. The team took 1st place at the end of the Drone Sports League 2022 season in the silver division.

Denis DEN Shirokov
Denis is a big fan of sports. As a kid he participated in a lot of tournaments in several disciplines like skiing, basketball, athletics, but never was doing sports at pro-level.
His interest with drones started because he wanted to try something new. Shirokov says that drone racing helps him to see the world around him in a different way.
