The World Drone Prix is an exciting drone racing competition that is set to be held in Dubai. The competition will be contested by drone pilots from around the world who will fight it out for $1 million in cash prizes. Contestants will receive prizes for best lap time, best freestyle team and most crowd-pleasing drone racing effort.

The drone racing competition will involve the streaming of the drone's first-person view to wearable goggles which fans can use to enjoy the entire process in virtual reality. It is this immersive and engaging spectator experience that is expected to draw lots of interest in this new and futuristic endeavor.

The conception of a high-tech, big-money and spectator-friendly drone racing league shows how even an underground hobby can make it mainstream.
