  2. OneLifeCycle on September 7, 2020 at 11:01 am

    This will never work! It’s like a 24 hour music channel or a 24 hour cooking channel. LOL that’s never gonna work!

    WEll that is entirely too awesome.

  4. graytlo on September 7, 2020 at 11:07 am

    THIS is a real sport, and finally using drones for something cool. I’d love to do this. Or at least go to an event.

    sport (noun)
    1) an activity involving PHYSICAL EXERTION and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.

    Please stop referring to this (and competitive video gaming) as a "sport."

    gotta register the tree racers to probably. cause registration will prevent someone from putting 2 sticks together coupled with an untraceable ardruino flight controller and brushless motors. And because ass holes follow the law.

  7. BloodCanvas on September 7, 2020 at 11:12 am

    Now this is a sport that I could get into! 🙂

    hi. we are a group of first semester engineering students and we were assigned to design and create a drone built for racing. what do you feel would be something you, as drone racers, would like your drone to be as or to have? (Material, motors, cameras, props, etc) thank you for your time.

  9. Janis Wolf on September 7, 2020 at 11:13 am

    what frames do they use (for example at 1:34 )?

  10. Rémi on September 7, 2020 at 11:13 am

    UP TO 90MPH XD two years later 100Mph is considered easy

  11. DV-13 on September 7, 2020 at 11:14 am

    I hope that tis will become a popular world-wide sport.

  12. Natasha Floksy on September 7, 2020 at 11:16 am

    love it!

  13. Submersed24 on September 7, 2020 at 11:17 am

    Im investing in this right a fucking way!!!!!!! Imagine states having their own stadiums that each have their own special twist to them

  14. Tony Allison on September 7, 2020 at 11:17 am

    Anyone know what frame that is @1:34 in the video??

  15. Matthew Archibald on September 7, 2020 at 11:17 am

  16. Suwarna Gummuluru on September 7, 2020 at 11:19 am

    Is it Steele Davis?

  17. Aldo on September 7, 2020 at 11:22 am

    100% better than NASCAR

  18. Rinoa's Auspicious Travails on September 7, 2020 at 11:23 am

    0:22 every time he says "take drones" i hear "take drugs". he pronounces drones really oddly.

  19. Johan Øvergård on September 7, 2020 at 11:24 am

    Attach another camera on the back and tilt it down so you can see the drone flying as an object in space – way more interesting for spectators. The first-person view is primarily a driver preference option. This is Wipeout IRL!

  20. Dane Glasoe on September 7, 2020 at 11:25 am

    I would watch the hell out of this.

  21. mark rankin on September 7, 2020 at 11:27 am

    what frame are they using

  22. Rob McKay on September 7, 2020 at 11:28 am

    The technology that will develop from this will bring flying cars, hoverboards and ‘speeder bikes’ so much closer. 🙂

  23. Razster on September 7, 2020 at 11:29 am

    Multicopter

  24. hooktenpushups on September 7, 2020 at 11:29 am

    Wow so fast for drone racing to be proclaimed a sport however anytime someone says "eSports" there is pandemonium in the comments.

  30. Sayit AsItIs on September 7, 2020 at 11:46 am

    The meaning of the term sport has certainly changed recently.

  31. Michael Mack on September 7, 2020 at 11:48 am
