Drone Racing – A New High Speed Sport

drone-racingFlying at speeds up to 120 mph, the sport of drone racing is exhilarating for both the pilots and spectators. Quad-copter drones are flown on a real world course as pilots steer them from First Person View (FPV) goggles. The live feed from the onboard cameras is transmitted to both the pilots and to spectators.  This type of immersive sport will be a perfect match for owners of Virtual Reality headsets. You will be able to feel like you are flying with the drone at high speeds as they careen around courses that are lit up like something out of the world of Tron. There is now a Drone Racing League and championship competitions. I believe we will be seeing these races on ESPN very soon.
