The guys are DRL are fantastic at engineering the fastest racing drones in the world!
Drone Racing League is building a new kind of spectator sport.
What it is: Drone Racing League launched in 2015 with a straightforward mission: bring drone racing into the mainstream.
DRL’s races feature remote control air crafts that fly at speeds over 90 miles per hour. DRL has had to build the drones itself — it acquired a company called Dronecraft, a designer of high-end racing drones — as well as design the race courses, and pull all of the technology together to make it happen.
Founders: Nicholas Horbaczewski
Funding: $32 million from Hearst Ventures, Lerer Hippeau Ventures, Sky UK, MGM Studios, CAA, Liberty Media, Allianz Ventures, WWE Ventures, Lux Capital, RSE Ventures, and CRCM Ventures
