I understand there are other drone racing series, but this blog post is focused on one of the many- the Drone Racing League.
Drone Racing League
Considering how popular drones have become the past five to ten years, a series like the Drone Racing League is something that is really catching on. Imagine a race in which you pilot a drone at some high speeds through a neon-lit course with a number of different obstacles. You have to be able to control your drone around a specific course. You have to do things like weave between columns, through certain loops, various gates, and more.
These racing drones are controlled by a drone remote control along with the pilots wearing virtual reality headsets to see the drones in action. These are drones that may light up pretty in neon and such, but they are very much business machines made to take on some unique courses. The races all start with the drones perched on some platforms and take off ready to go. From there, it is up to the pilots to navigate their drones from the Start position to the Finish gate.
Most of the courses are usually set in venues ranging from certain abandoned buildings to even some proper sporting locales. So the various venues are quite unique and have some interesting character as drones fly around trying to take on the various obstacles. It is really one of the more unique sports out there.
Video Preview.Let me give you an idea of what the racing is like with the Drone Racing League. Check out the video content I have provided for this blog post:

Pretty cool, huh?
Drone Racing League: Final Thoughts
As one of a number of different drone racing leagues, the final thoughts expressed here will be varied.
Final Thoughts in General.I think the Drone Racing League can really catch on if it hasn't already. It is surely unique in the racing venues and in some of the competitive drone racing. It takes a good deal of skill to pilot these machines and to maneuver them across some interesting courses. I want to imagine how many more courses can be created. I can even imagine what if more fans started watching a lot of the races live (if possible).
The Future of Drone Racing?The Drone Racing League is showing that it is possible for this kind of racing to be as popular among robotic series like Robot Wars or similar series. I want to imagine more people maybe take part in drone racing much like there is sufficient interest in remote control racing. If racing with average RC cars is popular, this drone racing could end up being just as popular.
