What can we look forward to in Drone Racing in 2019?
For that question, we turn to Nicholas Horbaczewski, CEO & Founder of The Drone Racing League, the premier global, professional drone racing circuit for elite pilots. With custom built racing drones traveling more than 90 MPH+, pilots race FPV (First Person View) through the most insane 3D courses ever created outside of a video game. The Drone Racing League is about three year old and when it started, many questioned the long-term viability of drone racing as a legitimate sport. In this edition of the Drone Radio Show, Nick talks about the league’s ascent from fad to a worldwide sport. We also learn about the 2019 Swatch DRL Tryouts to be held in Las Vegas on February 9 and the upcoming AlphaPilot challenge, which aims to accelerate the development and testing of fully autonomous drone technologies.
