Racing drones at 100 MPH in the Las Vegas Drone Rodeo

We took a break from CES 2017 and headed to the desert just outside the restricted airspace for Las Vegas to try out the “Ferrari of drones,” UVify’s Draco. Subscribe: https://goo.gl/G5RXGs

    Pretty much all chat and drama and the video "author" who seems to have no experience barely flies it, crashes it and end of video. Definitely click bait.

    I think it’s more like comparing playing baseball vs filming a baseball match. They’re different things, not trying to compete with on another. I like em both!

    any DJI drone is not meant for racing

  5. Miami Drone Sight on April 10, 2021 at 1:03 am

    this is amazing.

  6. Dylan West on April 10, 2021 at 1:05 am

    I live in Vegas and I used to race motocross at that track. Too bad a kid got really hurt or he died but they ended up getting sued so they closed down

    Non

    for people looking to fly drones, look for a full carbon fiber frame with any flight controller f3 or higher, avoid plastic like the plague, never pay over 250 for a drone, some go on sale for 100$. spend more money on sticks tham a bird, youll always have your sticks. dont waste money on expensive goggles box foams are best value by 4x.

    These should be inside of some sort of screen or chain link bubble mentioning noses.

  10. Drone Dropper on April 10, 2021 at 1:11 am

    I’ve been living in Vegas for over 10 years. And not once did I know this was a thing

  15. Yohei Naito on April 10, 2021 at 1:15 am

    Do ppl tilt their bodies while flying drones like we did playing Mario Kart?

  16. B. Stone on April 10, 2021 at 1:16 am

    A little less talk, a lot more action.

  17. DEAN CRUMMY on April 10, 2021 at 1:17 am

  18. Senna Ghost on April 10, 2021 at 1:19 am

  21. Monny Yell on April 10, 2021 at 1:26 am

  22. Jake White on April 10, 2021 at 1:26 am

    My 20$ nano drone goes 25 mph is that good for its micro size

  23. Sneha Solanki on April 10, 2021 at 1:26 am

    I to need this drone

  24. Paulo Lobo on April 10, 2021 at 1:27 am

    What drones are this?

  25. 『 ЯiΖΞΝ 』 on April 10, 2021 at 1:28 am

    Why didnt they have his transmitter connected to one of the pros so they can catch it if he fails?

  26. Chan Ke on April 10, 2021 at 1:30 am

    Nothing but him talking… boring… I wanted to see it go 100mph and how cool it was. Pro and con about it but nothing in that sort happened.

  27. vidribbin on April 10, 2021 at 1:33 am

    Poop

  28. Roberto on April 10, 2021 at 1:33 am

    He should have said NO this does not belong on a Best Buy shelf. It’s completely different than a chepo Walmart drone, anyone who has no idea how to fly acro shouldn’t attempt it on a quad that size, or speed.

  29. ᛋᛒᛖ‍ᚱᚫᛞᚻᛏ on April 10, 2021 at 1:34 am

    I can’t fly fpv, i try and it’s like I have ho idea where my drone is. Is that normal? Do I just need practice? The latency isn’t noticeable so it’s not that. It’s like I only have a general idea where it is. The lense is wide angle too. I’ve tried it with normal and wide angle.

  30. JESSY D'Asgard on April 10, 2021 at 1:34 am

    how is quad at 1.34 min ? THX

  31. Spencer U on April 10, 2021 at 1:38 am

    Its amazing how much information the verge gets wrong on all of their videos. Its becoming "the onion" of the tech world. and its funny because there is no actual information in this video. it explains nothing, brings up no REAL conversational questions, nothing….how are they still creating content and how are people still taking it seriously??

  32. Philip Cecil on April 10, 2021 at 1:39 am

    Most decently built drones can hit a hundred miles an hour but you’re not going to actually be hitting that speed very often

  33. walter stead on April 10, 2021 at 1:40 am

    Borring as .well u know

  34. Saint Anthony Goodchild on April 10, 2021 at 1:40 am

    Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah! OMG this was worse than an episode of The View!

  35. Spicy Güero on April 10, 2021 at 1:41 am

    Wait how fast does it go again?

  36. Drone Flight on April 10, 2021 at 1:43 am

    At 10 seconds of you bring down the throttle it falls you can turn on air mode in beta flight or clean flight

  37. AestheticCruise on April 10, 2021 at 1:45 am

    If the draco is available as a ready to fly, I WANT ONE!!!!😍😍😍😍

  38. Robert W. on April 10, 2021 at 1:47 am

    Were you dying for a pee at some points here? 😂

  39. DroNe Alone on April 10, 2021 at 1:47 am

    Neat-o guys

  40. Nope Nope on April 10, 2021 at 1:48 am

    What kind of range do you get with the drones and those video visors?

  41. BRIAN BRYAN on April 10, 2021 at 1:48 am

    Why speed a lot of money on a a quad that dose not go 100mph. Spend your money on building a quad that you make and can make it to what ever you what,plus you get to learn programming and learn how to solder which is great for kids to do and adults. If you don’t have time or have lots of money get a rtf or bfn quad and slowly learn the basic of drones.

  42. Old Seer on April 10, 2021 at 1:49 am

    A very deadly toy, FACTS! Smaller Drones, TERRORISTS, perfect weapons. Easily 4-8 miles delivery Germ warfare, Chemicals BIO sprays, Explosives.. Terrorist Prayers answered . No Airliners needed to kill 10’s of thousands. Terrorists buying drones online. BOOMS> Buildings, Ball Parks, Parades, Homes, almost EVERYWHERE.

  43. Baqca Sanke on April 10, 2021 at 1:50 am

    That video feed did NOT look like zero latency 720p. It looked like VHS quality

  44. Aaron Jarvis on April 10, 2021 at 1:53 am

    The guy said that the phantom is a van and racing drones are Ferrari😂😂 omfg

  45. Jake White on April 10, 2021 at 1:54 am

    So basically this a dog park for drones… a drone park

  46. john doe on April 10, 2021 at 1:56 am

  47. Leon Hubbard on April 10, 2021 at 1:56 am

    aaaand- let down…

  48. steve Kos on April 10, 2021 at 1:56 am

    It must be pretty nice for all you to get to enjoy flying those things around. It’s too bad not everyone is able to afford them.

  49. me myself on April 10, 2021 at 1:57 am
