Drones are now have an interesting use. From being used for military purposes to now being considered as a form of entertainment. Drone racing has become a thing. Yes, you read that correctly.
Drone Racing is predicted as potentially becoming even more popular than formula one racing! Equipped with 4 motors and configured to be fit for racing, these drones are getting noticed. Sponsors are trying very hard to get involved with the events. Who knew this had a market!
Essentially, it can only be played with the first person view (FPV) resulting in only one person being able to see what the drone’s front camera is able to display. Along with having to manufacture the drones, actually coordinating them in a racing situation is another story altogether.
There are many popular organisations including the Drone Racing League (DRL), U.S. National Drone Racing Championship and a handful of other standalone leagues.
There are world rankings from results taken from the leagues and significantly there are set to be annual championships in Dubai, similar to the formula one.
Drone Racing is making a very big impact and could become very well-known in the near future.
For now, it’s our secret!
