Many big names are adding money to and funding FPV drone racing. Satellite broadcaster Sky has invested $1m into the Drone Racing League (DRL) to help bring the sport to the masses via their wide reach. The appeal is apparent as soon as you sit down to watch a race. Spectators are placed in the view (first person view) of the drone striking through the course and witness first hand when a drone spins, flips or crashes. Many believe that the investment in the Drone Racing League comes because it is the perfect sport to reach the young male audience, which can be elusive to traditional broadcasters. Today’s audiences demand thrills and many investors see drone racing as the perfect way to provide those thrills!
