Most of us know drones as a hobby and a great way to pass the time, but an entirely new industry surrounding drones is beginning to emerge. Drone racing is becoming the latest and greatest thing to turn into an industry and it’s gaining ground quite quickly.
Drone racing as a sport is the next fix for adrenaline junkies looking to tear it up. The Drone Racing League and the Drone Sports Association both have some major ambitions where this exciting new industry is concerned. They made deals with ESPN for signed broadcasting and have attracted some large sponsors for the purpose of gaining ground in hosting championships for big prize money.
