Drone racing – now that’s cool

If you go down to the woods today… well, you’ll probably get soaked if the weather out my window is anything go to by. But some French drone enthusiasts decided to turn the woods into a drone racing track with great results!

OK, so on one level they just roped an area of the woods off, but the idea is fantastic. The drones are all controlled with onboard cameras that give the race a Star Wars podracing / Endor speederbike feel.

Check out the video below. If you don’t understand French you will need to turn the subtitles on.
