DRL Season 2 Starts Off

The Drone Racing League's ('DRL') season 2 kicks off tomorrow (June 21, 2017) on ESPN. At stake is prize money in the amount of $100,000.00. A total of 16 drone racing pilots will take part in DRL season 2, travelling the world to race the DRL's racing drones in a variety of different venues that range from professional sports stadiums to abandoned, torn down malls. The drones that will be flown during the DRL's season 2 are designed by the DRL itself. A DRL racing drone, which is crafted differently from one drone racing environment to another, varies in value between $500 to $1,000, and can reach top speeds of up to 80 to 90 mph.  DRL racing pilots are recruited from the numerous drone racing competitions that have sprung up within the past few years. The DRL's free drone racing simulator has also been a source of recruitment for skilled drone racing pilots. As DRL CEO & Founder rightly stated, excellent drone racing pilots tend require a excellent hand-eye coordination, very good depth perception, as well as the ability to stay calm under high pressure. The full schedule of DRL season 2 is available in one of our previous posts.
