Welcome to the World of Professional Drone Racing

The quadcopter is not much bigger than an iPad, but it can travel at up to 80 miles per hour, and it’s equipped with neon-green propellers and an antenna that make it resemble a large, inquisitive insect. “It kind of looks like a frog, so I’ve named it Frogger,” drone pilot and builder Erich Bitonio says. He’s fond of it, but as a FPV (first-person view) drone racing pilot, he’s also willing to break it—sending it through hairpin turns, flipping and feinting, and working to be the first over the finish line.
