For those of you unfamiliar with the term drone racing, suffice it to say that it involves racing one’s own remote-controlled, electric, drone aircraft (also called remotely piloted vehicles, or Rv). It’s essentially the same thing, only more so. This new sport is fast gaining in popularity among hobbyists and professionals alike.
In FPV drone racing, pilots are given the chance to pilot a drone aircraft and engage in aerial combat against opponents from around the world. Many of the pilots are professional military, law enforcement, or aviation professionals. Each time their aircraft takes off into battle, it becomes a competition between the two teams of pilots. The best racer wins the race and the top prize – the real prize of course.
In the air, the game is all about maneuvering the drone aircraft through various obstacles set up by the opponent. These obstacles can be anything from sand dunes to waterfalls. While racing your drone, the only limit is the imagination of the individual pilot and his or her abilities.
As you might expect, these racers have to get extremely accurate and precise at handling their remote-controlled, high speed flying machines. Unlike traditional sports, it’s not enough to be quick on your feet. These racers must know when and where to make turns and accelerate in order to outpace their opponents. If they run out of fuel, they simply cannot win.
In fact, for many of these players, getting in shape and practicing using a remote control may actually help them win more races and eventually become an expert at this unique form of aerial combat. Most of the pilots take some sort of training course, sometimes even before heading out to fly their own drones. This helps them to gain familiarity with the remote control and its various features. It also allows them to learn how to handle the controls better.
While racing their remote control, these pilots can practice and hone their skills as much as they want. In most cases, they have the option to play for fun or compete against others who are equally skilled and experienced. This is where experience comes in because there are many who enjoy this sport so much that they will do it just for the competition.
Combat enthusiasts and hobbyists from all over the world flock to these races because it is an opportunity to get up close and personal with the combat in the skies and get to know the other pilots. They also get to compete against the real people in the air because they are all real, live competitors.
Of course, there are rules which govern when you can race; there is no real competition without a certain number of points and prizes that must be won before you can win. However, many of the best and most experienced pilots are not bothered about the point system, as they just like to race any time they want and anywhere they wish.
In addition, all of the winners are given a plaque that contains the name of their racer and the drone pilot’s skill level. Each trophy is made with great craftsmanship and is worth quite a bit. Some of these trophies are quite large and they are made to look and feel like a real trophy. The best pilots use these trophies to show off at air shows, as well as giving them to family and friends as gifts.
In the virtual world, they can also find other pilots to race against. However, many of these pilots are also more experienced than the newbies who don’t have a lot of experience with this type of flying. This makes this game quite exciting because the newbie has a chance to learn from the professionals.
Drone racing offers an even playing field because it is all done in the virtual world and therefore, it doesn’t matter where the person lives or what kind of equipment they use. They can race anywhere and anytime they want and still be able to win prizes and participate in competitions that they would not normally be able to.
Even though these pilots may be a little nervous about playing against others who aren’t familiar with this type of flying, the thrill of winning and beating one another can be overwhelming and exciting, especially for new hobbyist pilots. They can also be introduced to a number of different aspects of this exciting game while being challenged at the same time.
