FPV (First-person View) drone racing as a sport is growing in popularity. This is reflected by the growing number of drone racing leagues and events around the world. Now in Detroit, thanks to the Detroit Drone team, FPV racing is making an appearance.

Detroit Drone hosts first-person view, or FPV, races for multicopter enthusiasts throughout the area.

“I’ve been into radio-controlled stuff for 20, 30 years,” says Harry Arnold of Detroit Drone. “My background in car racing said, ‘well, let’s race them,’ and now we’re at about 450 members for our user group and the racing is really, really catching on.”
