Drone race for dollars

Dozens of pilots, many of whom have been racing quadcopters and flying wings for just a year or two, tested their skills against one another on a twisting obstacle course built on Governors Island in New York to decide who is the fastest drone pilot in the country. A $50,000 purse was up for grabs at the 2016 U.S. National Drone Racing Championships. This was officially the second national championships in drone racing and was held on the first weekend in August. Dozens of competitors, hundreds of spectators, and a potential audience of thousands watching then or later via internet took it all in.
