I was flipping channels and came across the Drone Racing League on ESPN 2 (yes, I was shocked to see it on there also). Anyway, I got totally mesmerized at the courses and they way the the participants were able to maneuver and manipulate these drones. There is also a surprising amount of strategy involved. They use a standard controller and VR like headset to see a first person view of the course. Has anyone else checked it out. If not and you see it on, I'd recommend just watching for a bit...I can feel a new obscure obsession coming on.

  • That looks awesome.
  • Just discussed this potential the other day, those little mini drones can run upwards 25 MPH, kind of terrifying indoors.

    According to the sight that can get up to 80 mph max.
  • I know they're mostly plastic but that would seriously hurt it you got hit by one of those at top speed.
