Teenager wins big in the biggest drone race so far.

A British teenager has won $250,000 (£175,000) after placing first in the inaugural World Drone Prix in Dubai. 15-year-old Luke Bannister piloted his drone to victory along an outdoor track, using a camera mounted on its front to steer the craft through a series of illuminated hoops from a first-person viewpoint, and beating out competition from 150 other teams in the process.

Over the last year the popularity of drone racing has shot up, but Dubai's World Drone Prix is one of the biggest events yet, with a prize pool of $1 million.

The sport is has already attracted investment from the likes if the NFL team owners, but it still has a long way to go before it's a mainstream sport. I had seen some things about drone racing but I had no idea it was this big already.
