One of the coolest reasons to get into drone racing is its ability to bring people together. It doesn’t matter who you are, what race or sex or anything else, anyone can pilot a drone well enough to enjoy having a race. The ease of access through an equal playing field can create some amazing ways of getting people together.
Take, for example, AgStart, a startup company in Sacramento, California. Their demonstration featured a quaint dinner at a winery followed up with some rounds of competitive drone racing. This is a rather new type of demonstration day, compared to the classic style of meeting in a classroom, office, or meeting hall.
The original article here helps bring what the company itself is like to light, but I’d rather focus on what pertains to us and this site, the drone racing. The fact that the racing has spread like wildfire over the past couple of years is an undeniable fact at this point, but it’s when you see more laid back examples of the sport like this when you truly realize how far it has come. The interest in the sport outside of the original niche audience is both telling and compelling; a surefire signal to the rest of the world that it’s here to stay.
