Drone used for regional events. HELSEL’s SKYBALL



As the importance of sustainable regional development is increasingly recognised, a number of regional events are being organized. Regional events are more than just festivals, they are a place for youth to connect and lay the groundwork for the future of the region's industries. There is a growing number of educational and experiential events being organized by local governments, and local events using drones are also on the rise.

The great thing about using drones at regional events is that it gives kids the opportunity to fly and experience them first-hand. Drones are considered one of the keys to the fourth industrial revolution. In many countries around the world, there is a growing interest in educating students about drones.

Today's regional event is a drone soccer event for local students in Uiseong, South Korea. A total of 12 teams participated in the event, including students from neighbouring areas. 

Each team consisted of three players and played a 3 VS 3 drone soccer competition using drone balls.

There are many regional events that use drones, and drone soccer is one of the best examples.

Drone soccer is a sport that allows players to compete against each other using drone balls, and since there are wins and losses, it can easily capture the attention and focus of children.

The FAI, the Federation Aeronautique International, divides drone soccer into three classes(F9A-A CLASS / B CLASS / C CLASS) and organises competitions around the world. The drone ball used in the A and B classes is considered a great drone education solution beyond just a sport because students can customize and program the drone themselves.

The drone ball used in the drone soccer competition was a 20cm drone with a brushed motor of the same size as the FAI's C CLASS. The event was organised as a drone soccer competition open to all compliant drones, regardless of manufacturer. 

Helsel was the official sponsor of the regional event. Helsel's 20cm Skyball, the Balkin, was also used in the competition.

BALKIN is a 20cm drone ball with brushed motors. It is a good drone for beginners to start playing drone sports such as drone soccer and drone basketball. In Korea, it is often used for after-school drone education for children and is designated as the official drone ball for drone basketball competitions.


It has round guards, so anyone can comfortably practice drones. It has an altitude maintenance function, making it easy for beginners to fly drones for the first time, so it is also suitable for use in events for local residents like this one. Before experiencing soccer drones for professionals such as STRIKER and TIKE, I recommend practicing with BALKIN.

The competition gave students a chance to fly their own drones and compete against other teams. Helsel is making the SKYBALL series of drone balls that combine education and sports for the next generation of drone market leaders. Our goal is to enable students around the world to use Helsel's SKYBALL to become the next generation of drone talent.
