Drones recently were put through their paces in Detroit when members of a Detroit Drone group organized a drone raceÂ at Detroit’s Dorais Velodrome.
The drones in the race could travel in excess of 35 mph and could easily handle tricks like barrel rolls in addition to the usual 6 axis movement that most drones enjoy.
Needless to say, your typical aerial photography class drone does not have this kind of capability but 25mph plus speeds are still not considered slow by anyone who has ever flown one.
Drone races in the Tampa area sound like a fine idea, if enough drone owners in the Tampa area agree, drone races may soon be coming to a Tampa location near you.
Who knows, we may even make a showing at the races with a custom drone of our own.
