Drone racing has quickly gained popularity in the last year but the introduction of professional events backed by large sums of money will likely attract a much larger crowd in the near future. Arguably one of the biggest races to date is Dubai’s World Drone Prix, an event with a prize pool of $1 million USD and 150 teams from across the globe. Yesterday’s final saw 15-year-old Luke Bannister and his Tornado X-Blades Banni-UK team beat out the Dubai Dronetek crew in a thrilling final in front of 2,000 spectators. Get a recap of the illuminated spectacle in the videos above and below.
