Adrenaline Filled Drone Racing
Drone racing is an adrenaline filled sport, it is growing in popularity really quickly as the technology is getting more and more accessible and affordable. 3D printing is also playing a role in this popularity boost as drones can be customised easily. It’s exciting to see what will happen with this sport over the next few years.

Drone racing appeals to many pilots as there are many different variations of racetracks that people can take part in, with varying twists and turns and hairpins. These also get adapted for different difficulty levels and can be enjoyable between pilots and friends even in some cases family members.
The drones themselves have technology in them to aid steering a high-speed, without these aids people would be sure to crash more often.
There are two different types of drone racing indoor and outdoor, indoor racing drones are designed to go fast and racing them indoors takes a lot of space typically these drones are small quad copters there are specifically designed to race indoors
When buying a drone, it is important to consider what you will be using it for, if you’re going to buy an off-the-shelf drone that is important to be aware of your abilities and buy one that fits with your skill level. You may think it would be a good idea to start with a cheap drone, however this can be counterproductive as these can sometimes be harder to fly creating more risk. So as a rule, try and stick to a reasonably sized budget for your new hobby.
It is important to remember drones are not easy to fly, even the best of pilots make mistakes and crashes happen, even some of the best drones available with the latest technology will still require some overall knowledge and skill if you wish to prevent crashing or even losing your drone.
Drones have evolved from toys that can be just used occasionally with a short life into marvels of engineering with characteristics that allow it to fly in a very agile fashion with precision and speed not seen in recent years.
Some pilots even now are building their own drones and that has become a competitive sport in itself.
