World Drone Cup 2018


I am Giuseppe Rinaldi, i live in the province of Turin, i have been a fan of model
airplanes for over 20 years. For four years, I’ve been working with drones for aerial
shooting and organising new mini drone races. In May 2015 i participated in my first
drone race on the beach and it was love at first sight!
I’m racing in organised competitions and also world events. On the social networks i
am known as BadSide84 (pilots have FPV nicknames so we can recognise each other). I
raced my first competition in Viareggio (Italy) where i won first place and from there,
thanks to a French friend, i started a small career in the world of Drone Racing.After this event i received a call and i went to France with 50 Drone Pilots including famous pilots like Metal Danny. I managed to win third position, I was then invited to “Zaragoza” in Spain and many other races between 2015 and 2016.In 2016 I attended a World first race – the World Drone Prix event in Dubai with Tornado XBlades. This team has done so much for me and has been the best team ever for my career and i think for all its members.In 2017 Tornado XBlades changed their Title name to NexXblades. NexXBlades team gave me the opportunity of a lifetime, i am able to travel the world, racing the best FPV competitions across the globe! This past year i teamed up with 6 friends and created the real first fixed indoor racing circuit in Italy, the DroniXtreme. After this big adventure i decided to create a little flight camp in my little city called BadSide Flight Camp where i still practice constantly and i manage little events for all FPV pilots!
My last race in Italy in 2018 was the F3U Italian Championship in Pistoia where i manage to take 1st place!
