Fly a Sim, Earn $75,000

The 2018 DRL Tryouts are out and you could be the next Drone Racing League pilot with a sweet contract for $75,000. The 2018 season is coming up and has a new title sponsor, Swatch. DRL and Swatch are looking for the hottest pilots to compete and it all starts with the DRL Simulator. Download the sim, put in the time and test your skills against other pilots for the top spots. Make it into the top 24 and you'll be invited to a live racing sim tournament where the winner will walk away with glory and the $75,000 contract for the 2018 season as the official Swatch pilot.

It's a sweet deal and an amazing opportunity for aspiring professional drone racing pilots. The DRL Sim is getting some improvements and revisions for multiplayer, drone selection and training missions. There's also a Garage Mode coming next month. You can pick up the DRL Simulator on Steam for $19.99, but it's on sale for $14.99 until December 1st. Give it a shot and see if you can make the cut.

Alright, let's see how good the physics are in this sim.

EDIT: tried it, game physics are a bit simple; however, it is good enough for practicing.
I have i7@3.4Ghz, GTX660 and 8GB of ram - can only play at 1366x768 (or whatever it is) with everything on low/medium, else I get low framerates and control input delay.
