What this giant, backflipping drone means for the future of drone racing

Drones
This giant drone can pull off amazing aerobatic maneuvers and is large enough to ride. Feast your eyes on what's known as the big drone built by members of the drone Champions League, the International drone racing organization also known as dcl for short [MUSIC] The big drone was made to be a symbol for what the future could look like for the fast flying world of drone racing. [MUSIC] I think that drones in general, they are spectacular when they're flying a lot of them together. But when you just see one of them, it looks like a little mosquito flying around. So we wanted to. Create a show similar to Formula One where we have a real big machine that you can really easily can really see. And that's when we thought about making a real big drone. With the human side. The big drone flexed its aerial acrobatics in the skies over Croatia back in February of this year. Doing backflips with a test dummy as well as logging a much safer test flight with a human board. The drone usually is called John because it's [UNKNOWN] automously, but in this case we have a drone with a person inside which by the test point of view it was controlled remotely by myself. We are working on in order to have the controller on board as well as the top speed of this drone is about 140 kilometers an hour, which is also I would say one of the new records as well because there are no other drones which can carry this speed with person inside. The members of DCL aren't the only ones imagining a future with giant manned racing drones Air speeder, a company based out of the UK and Australia is also working towards establishing a Racing League for man flying machines. The company envisions a Racing League with a growing fan base will give a much needed push to encourage innovation in electrical, vertical takeoff and landing vehicles. Which has long been a dream of future minded engineers and science fiction fans alike. Air speeder recently completed its first round of funding and expects to conduct its first manned test flight sometime this year. For those of you out there hoping to do a barrel roll and a manned multi rotor of your own someday The best place to start is with the official simulator. DCL the game is available on Steam, ps4 and Xbox1, and it was designed to prepare aspiring pilots for a career in the drone Champions League. Pilots who stand out in game could get invited to the DCL draft for a chance to race with real drones on real courses. Having this game as a kind of virtual training ground allows followers and fans of the DCL to participate even at a time when in-person match ups are currently on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. I see. He doesn't acuity for many people to jump in this game, but they can practice on the simulator since it's super realistic and to get ready once this virus is over, and also for us maybe to create some online races which can. Create a need of staying home and practicing and battling each other. That could be something from the negative point of view to the positive for your staying at home as always, thanks so much for watching. Stay safe out there, everybody.
