Professional Drone Racing Looks Like Real-Life Wipeout

Now this… is pod racing.

Sorry, I mean drone racing.

Honestly this set-up is super cool. It’s the first drone racing league, which I don’t really care about. What I care about are the insane set-ups they have for these races. It’s video game-esque.

In this video they’re racing in the Miami Dolphins stadium and they’ve set up all these checkpoints complete with FUTURISTIC LIGHTING and whatnot. The overall effect is just badass.

It’s funny, but Drone Racing seems to be more like Esports than any other sport out there. The players are using tags instead of their real names. Just the editing, the competitions, everything. It reminds me a lot of Esports to be honest.

Either way, it’s all very entertaining.
