Welcome to the 2nd Annual Miami Valley Aerial Drone Competition at the Greene County Career Center! We are located in Xenia, Ohio - just east of Dayton and Wright Patterson Airforce Base. We hope that you will join us for a fun day of UAS & drone competition. Our career center facility opened in 2020 with some of the most state-of-the-art career technical educational spaces in the Midwest. The tournament will take place in the gymnasium and our UAS flying space on our main campus. Here are a few logistical notes:

  • Our address is 532 Innovation Dr, Xenia, Ohio 45385, we have pleny of parking on-site (for buses too!)
  • Teams will have tables available but will need to bring extension cables and power strips.  
  • Safety Glasses are required
  • Digital Competition Logbooks or scanned copies of physical logbooks need to be uploaded on Robot Events by Feb, 14th. 
  • We will try to get some food trucks on site but Xenia also has plenty of options for pick-up, delivery, or dine-in. 

If you have further questions, please reach out to Brett Doudican at [email protected].  We will be reaching out with further information as we get closer to the event. Happy flying!
