Put a Porsche 911 head-to-head with a racing-spec drone and who would win? That’s what the guys at the Drone Racing League were on a mission to find out.
So they took a top-of-the-line drone and a first-person-view (FPV) headset down to the drag strip and put the two head-to-head. As a benchmark for the definition of ‘speed’, the Porsche 911 is pretty hard to beat.
Obviously the drone has the advantage of, well…it flies. The recently formed Drone Racing League launches its global race series next month with a season opener at NFL’s Sun Life stadium in Miami, which will be turned into an incredible 3D course for an FPV race.
A second race is then set to take place in LA, with subsequent races also in the pipeline which will then come together in a World Series with the planet’s best FPV drone racers pitted one against the other.
Check out the footage below to see who wins.
