Drone Racing League is Getting Slick but Cheesy

The DRL has put out another video pushing their professional racing league. While the video is pretty slick and fancy, with a lot of production value, it’s so overloaded with obviously scripted interplay, the ‘token’ female pilot (who gets pushed out almost immediately), and the hypercuts and obviously staged crashes, it just looks like a boring “reality video” show.

Drone racing is about skill and enjoyment of the sport. Trashtalking your pilot friends and wearing costumes is not why we’re here. Skilled piloting, exciting courses, and the thrill of flying is what drives us. Not “win at all costs.”

DRL, you obviously have the money, but stop trying to rip the soul out of our sport.
