Drones get Xtreme
If you’re an avid quadcopter hobbyist and are seeking your next challenge then look no further than the Xtreme Drone Circuit race held in Las Vegas. Yes, in case you weren’t aware, people are actually competitively racing drones around glowing, neon, fire breathing circuits for fun and with quite impressive skills. It does look like spectacular neon fun; like something out of the future.
Flying the course in first-person the pilot wears a pair of goggles that have a live stream of the footage from the quadcopter sent straight into their eyes. After watching the footage you can imagine this is quite the trippy situation.
Here’s a video from one of the participants. If you’re wondering if there are any mishaps do watch out for the crashes.
Oh and if you want to know how to attain FAA approval for your UAV read Freedom, Forms and the FAA. *Yawn*
