The DRL or Drone Racing League consists of the best drone racing pilots in the world who compete in a series of races at iconic locations all over the world. They all fly the same drone, the DRL Racer 2, which is outfitted with color matching lights so you can tell who is in the lead. The race courses are like nothing you've ever seen before with neon lit gates, tunnels and an exciting finish into a net. Pilots wear video goggles and fly from the perspective of the drone with a front facing camera. It takes skill and luck to get through the course safely and as fast as possible.
