World's Largest Drone Race

This week kicked off the pre-qualifiers for the World Drone Prix in Dubai as teams from all over the world descended on the world's richest city. Competitive racers got to practice for the indoor track to try and earn their place in the top 32 teams to be able to compete in the big finale this weekend on the epic custom built race course. The indoor qualification track looks pretty awesome, but it pales in comparison to the giant main race course. We can't wait to see how it all turns out. Until then, enjoy the videos and photos of the first few days below provided by the World Drone Prix media team. More photos and videos will be posted throughout the week so stay tuned to this thread...

The drones are here! (1 min 54 sec)

Am a little amazed by the lack of coverage of this event. Have little it more an obstacle race, less speed?? or vice versa?. Apart from a guide book for girls regarding who not to mate with....who are these people in photos ? Who are the teams, how were they chosen. Why is it i can read an article about some rc swapmeet in some shed in iowa but dont get much detail about this world wide event. details details.....

Does anyone know if they are going to stream live coverage? I thought at one point I read that somewhere. Maybe I'm way off though...
