Video: Drone Racing, Star Wars Style!

Inspired by the air race scene in The Phantom Menace, 24 FPV drone pilots sped through a forest in the French Alps, weaving around trees and low-hanging branches to reach speeds of 31mph! The brainchild of the Airgonay drone club, the event pitted four pilots at a time, flying three laps of the nearly 500-foot course. Club president Herve Pellarin says they hope its success can inspire like-minded drone enthusiasts around the globe to put their skills to the test. Check out this video!

  1. English PLEASE

  2. AWESOME!!!!!!

  3. I love it, but please, I’m begging you, stop calling them drones. Drones are autonomous, these are not. Because of the media, ‘drones’ bring up visions of war and death among the public, and the last thing we need in our hobby right now is more negative public perception.

  4. I know Yeti’s don’t like drones.
