Drone racing wars

It's the first time I see a competition organised to race with drones on a closed track in the forest, it's in French but nonetheless fun to watch. Guess these guys don't care much about 3 axis stabilisation for their camera's :)

Re: Drone racing wars

That is brilliant Noa and I can see it catching on in the quad community. I fly my Phantom with an FPV camera, but wouldn't have the confidence to fly at that speed through trees. I use my GoPro for filming while flying, but also take the usb out to a transmitter for fpv to a monitor.

They need to add paintball guns and lasers to those.

Re: Drone racing wars

Awesome find Noa. Pod racing without needing to be in the aircraft :) Yay!

(Hopefully you all know what film Pod racing refers to and I don't need to explain it)

Re: Drone racing wars

Add weapons on to those drones and you got an aerial version of UK's Robot Wars from a few years back! ha
