Multicopter Drone Racing

It was only a matter of time before someone worked out how to turn a multicopter such as a quadrotor radio controlled helicopter into a game and it looks like it’d be incredible fun.

From what I can see, they’ve got small video cameras attached to the top of the quadcopters to allow the pilots to see where they are going. That video footage is being streamed in real time back to the quadcopter’s pilot using wireless networking via a wifi transmitter that they’ve setup in the forest. I love the bright coloured lights that at the rear of the quadcopter’s so they can be easily seen by the other pilots.

I’m pretty sure they are all Star Wars fans, it harks back to the forest speeder bike scene!
