Drone Racing: The New Extreme Sport

Wired's Channel on Conde Nast Entertainment's "The Scene" Reports on this Exciting New Sport

Welcome to the world of FPV Drone Racing. FPV means First Person View where the pilot and spectator wear goggles and experience the race from the drone’s attached camera. You can call it a new industry, but the world of drone racing is quickly becoming a popular sport. This year was marked by the US Drone Racing Nationals held at the California State Fairgrounds and covered by the national media.

Poised to make its mainstream debut in 2016, The Drone Racing League is like car racing but features drones flying in mid-air at speeds of 90mph. 

Check out WIRED Staff Writer Tim Moynihan as he explores the world of drone racing in two new videos giving the viewer an overview of the sport and the technology behind it. Both videos just went live on WIRED’s channel on THE SCENE, the premiere digital video storytelling platform from Condé Nast Entertainment.
