The world of FPV racing is still tight-knit: It’s a segment of a segment of the growing but still relatively small drone industry. But that might not be the case for long. These homemade machines can fly at speeds of up to 100 miles an hour, making it the perfect option for people with a speed obsession but can’t shell out for a private jet. Those who race say it’s going to be on ESPN one day, that we’ll have drone racing stadiums, and leagues, and maybe even Mario Kart-style combat.
