FPV Drone Racing in Rural Canada

Subscribe to Motherboard Radio today – http://apple.co/1DWdc9d

Here at Motherboard, we’ve been watching the emerging hobby-sport of first-person drone racing ever since we first strapped on VR goggles in the Bronx, New York, and flew tiny robots across a park in the middle of winter. That’s why, when we heard Canada’s first organized drone racing would be taking place in a town called Clinton, Ontario, in rural Canada, we sent VICE Canada’s Patrick McGuire to document the festivities.

    imagine something like this with bigger faster drones racing through some badass circuit in grand canyon

    I feel like this’ll become such a big sport within the next 10 years.

    More like this. Loving the drone coverage 🙂

    6:00 How foolish. Who would arm a quad right next to someone’s head. Perfect way to kill someone. Especially with powerful brushless motors.

    this is the second drone racing video i’ve seen on mb, and neither had an actual race in them, please do a real race instead of just goofing around. give the specs and quick info on each contender, follow the race live from multiple angles, and declare a winner. even if it’s all time-trial, you could still give some actual times and show a whole lap of one of the best times. why do we have to just see you fail with a tiny copter.

    "Flying robots?" omg smh like really?

  7. Mauricio Ruiz on March 23, 2021 at 12:36 am

    Seems like modifying the drone to race would avoid so much damage to it.

    How do I make my qav250 more stable? Feels like once I TRY to make it level it wants to go up or down constantly making hard for me to fly.

  9. T3hJimmer on March 23, 2021 at 12:38 am

    This looks super fun.

  10. Adam Watson on March 23, 2021 at 12:40 am

    Mad Max with drones, how cool?

  11. Dawson on March 23, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Can you buy one

  12. Rc Rebel on March 23, 2021 at 12:49 am

    Nice indoor track, cool video…

  13. Buffet of Lies on March 23, 2021 at 12:49 am

    Pssst! It’s FPV not FVP. Measure twice, cut once.

  14. SF PV on March 23, 2021 at 12:49 am

    He almost got "Enrigue Iglesias’d" at the end there

  15. metalldanny on March 23, 2021 at 12:50 am

    Coool Vid .. !!!!!

  16. SYN FPV on March 23, 2021 at 12:52 am

    Nice coverage. Positive press!

  17. appv12 on March 23, 2021 at 12:52 am

    2:50 dat social awkwardness.

  18. Rodger Rabbit on March 23, 2021 at 12:57 am

    "Drone" "racing"?? Wow…
    Only Jesus lord our GOD can rid you of that sin!

  19. ZealousAce on March 23, 2021 at 12:58 am

    It’s a radio controlled model-quadcopter, not a drone. A drone is a military aircraft what shots missile and kills people.

  20. Alexandre on March 23, 2021 at 12:58 am

    who is this drone aficionado that keeps popping up in all the videos

  21. eggo on March 23, 2021 at 1:00 am

    This would be so boss if the drones were like half a ton racing machines.

  22. mrpeter81 on March 23, 2021 at 1:01 am

    "First FPV race-track"? year 2015? common! thats not right =)

  26. Racing FPV on March 23, 2021 at 1:06 am

    Great job guys! Thanks for coming out! We hope to see you at the USA Drone Nationals in July and the Canadian Nationals in August!

  27. Scott Elder on March 23, 2021 at 1:07 am

    *Excellent video Patrick!* _That was a fun weekend!_

  28. Motherboard on March 23, 2021 at 1:08 am

    Watch drone pilots navigate one of the first-ever drone racetracks. Naturally, it’s in a horse pavilion somewhere in Canada.

  30. Granite on March 23, 2021 at 1:12 am

  32. Bsjy Eaz on March 23, 2021 at 1:14 am

  33. Khoa Le on March 23, 2021 at 1:15 am

    Well, those drones flying things were actually the reason I gave up GTA VC and SA

  34. Gavin Phillips on March 23, 2021 at 1:16 am

    What’s funny is that that’s like 10 minutes away from my house

  35. SticksFPV on March 23, 2021 at 1:17 am

  37. StellWair on March 23, 2021 at 1:20 am

    "The big leagues of rural Ontario." never before has that sentence ever been said.

  38. aeronutzfpv on March 23, 2021 at 1:21 am

    That would suck if the mini quad at end scalped the hipster. Lol! Don’t pull a iglasias.

  39. Peter Ritchie on March 23, 2021 at 1:24 am

    Hi Guys, I am trying to set up Drone Racing in Victoria Australia. I have a location where we can have a race course through trees, a race course through trees and obstacles, and a large paddock where we can set up pylons for a pylon racing course or else an oval shaped course for speed freaks. Is there a set of rules?  It would be great to grow the sport where we can compete on an international basis? Are there any international groups yet?

  40. DStray Cat on March 23, 2021 at 1:29 am

    Wow!!! That is Sooooo horny… lol When I was a kid we had electric race cars that ran around a track on a ribbon of Copper wire… It’s been so long, I can’t remember what we called them… I do remember that I had a scale model of a Lola Can/Am car and I smoked everyone… This is Lightyears beyond that… 🙂 I LOVE IT! Thanks for posting… Move over Predators… the Public is taking over… lol

  41. s p a c e soma on March 23, 2021 at 1:30 am

    I’ve been talking about this for years!

  42. Caoimhin Uí Liatháin on March 23, 2021 at 1:30 am

    I was literally saying this idea to a friend the other day… and I’m Canadian… WHY am I not involved in this??!

    Seems like Drone racing might actually be part of our usual set of sports watched like football or F1 (depending on preference of course)
