Coming soon: the DR5 System sets the standard for Drone Racing

Drone Racing is a new type of sports, but it is quickly gaining popularity. The speed and maneuverability of drones make drone racing thrilling to watch – and even more exciting to do. MYLAPS is developing the most advanced drone timing system on the market: the DR5 System. This system is based on our RC4 system, that has been used in the world of RC racing for many years and still is the standard for timing RC races. DR5 is an evolution of this reliable solution, optimized for use with drones.

Get in touch


  • Accuracy of up to 0,01 seconds
  • Every pilot has their own transponder: no video signal errors
  • Unlimited number of drones per race
  • All data is being stored and published on the MYLAPS Speedhive platform
  • Decades of experience with RC racing

About the system

The DR5 system works with a decoder, detection loops that are placed on (air) gates, timing software and DR5 Transponders. When you already own a MYLAPS RC4 Decoder, you can convert it to a DR5 Decoder through a firmware update. This will not remove your RC timing abilities: your decoder will come with an option to easily switch between both disciplines.

Detection loops
The DR5 System uses the same loops as our RC systems. The loops are mounted around (air) gates to detect every drone.

DR5 Transponder
Every pilot owns or rents a lightweight transponder that is mounted onto the drone. The transponders send out a unique signal, so there is no video signal erroring. When pilots register the transponder to their MYLAPS Speedhive account, they get an overview of all their training and race data.
