Inaugural Military International Drone Racing Tournament

Inaugural Military International Drone Racing Tournament
The inaugural Military International Drone Racing Tournament will be held in Sydney at historic Victoria Barracks in the lead up to Invictus Games Sydney.
Drone racing allows for enthusiasts of all ages to become involved in electronics and aerodynamics and is also a new adaptive sport for those with a disability.
As part of the lead up to the MIDRT, members of the Australian Army Drone Racing Team (ADRT) conducted a demonstration display of skills on the flight deck of HMAS Canberra, docked in Sydney Harbour.

The CONTACT newsletter is a free fortnightly email-based publication that draws attention to recent news stories. Its intent is to bring readers the best of the previous fortnight in a handy-reference format, as well as ‘blog-style’ articles produced specifically for the newsletter.

CONTACT Air Land & Sea magazine is a high-quality, full-colour, features-based magazine published four times per year. Initially launched in March 2004 as a traditional paper-based magazine, it switched to digital in 2013. It is now only available by FREE subscription – – though our archives here – are now restricted to Patrons only.

HOWEVER – our ultimate goal is to get back to printing CONTACT on honest-to-goodness touchie-feelie paper again. And we will do that if/when we get enough support. See our Patreon page ( for details of how you can help.

CONTACT BACK IN PRINT – who doesn’t want to see that happen!!!

Thank you for your interest and support.
I very much appreciate it,
