Maldives Radio Control Federation on Saturday marked the "International Drone Day" in the Maldives, for the first time in the country.
The federation explained that the main reason as to why they celebrated the international drone day was because they were formed on the same day and since there are a number of individuals with drones in the country.
Speaking to reporters, a member of the federation revealed that even though the federation was formed today, the activities had been ongoing since 2009.
Official works of the federation would include providing knowledge of drones and how they are operated to school students as well as methods on how drones are built. In addition to this, works will be carried out to pave the way for Maldivians to participate in international drone events.
"Drones Are Good" was the theme of the event carried out on Saturday, which saw drones as well as RC planes being flown.
