Imagine a sport in which remote-controlled, custom-built, four-propeller drones that can travel faster than 70 mph embark on races through gated obstacle courses or even dogfight in mid-air -- all while sending back live feeds that are viewed through virtual-reality FPV (first-person-view) video goggles. Pilots and spectators wearing their own goggles say part of the pull is you literally feel as if you are flying. "It's a completely immersive experience," says 34-year-old Drone Racing League founder Nick Horbaczewski.
FanVision allows fans in the grandstands to view the race in front of them on personal monitors and even switch their perspective from driver cockpit to driver cockpit.
