The Drone Racing League: Future of Sports

“When you put the googles on, it feels like you’re in the cockpit of the drone”, says Steve Zoumas, a top ranked FPV drone pilot from the United States.

With a GoPro camera mounted below the four propellers, we get a breathtaking peak into the speed at which these remote controlled drones fly. Coming in infinite designs, the most complex ones are built by the pilots themselves and feature a lower-quality DVR camera on board that streams via radio antenna to the googles pilots wear as they navigate their machines through an obstacle course. Races are decided by which pilots manage to circle the course the fastest, rather than racing as a big group.
