DRL – Season 3

The DRL ( Drone Racing League) is a competitive racing tournament where pro drone racers around the world are given a DRL custom-made first-person view drone ( So no competitor has any advantages over the other) to race through a pre-constructed three-dimensional obstacle course to see who will come out with the fastest time.

In the third season of the Drone Racing League expect to see more competition, faster drones, and bigger courses which will bring more excitement for the viewers.

Every season of the DRL has generated a higher volume of viewers across the globe, and with the accumulation of new sponsors, and DRL rookie competitors ( who are seeking to make their mark in the Drone Racing League) their is no reason for the leaders of the DRL organization to think their league will stop growing.

DRL’s 3rd season will be available for more than 75 countries around the planet through a variety of video outlets. The league has also continued broadening the locations where they will be holding their drone racing competition from places like the United States, England and Germany, to their newest location in the middle east that has become a rapidly growing fan base, “Saudi Arabia”.

If this season of the Drone Racing League reaches new heights as they expect, who knows where the next wonderful locations will be for the DRL in the future seasons to come.

My Thoughts on the DRL

I was not introduced to the Drone Racing League until watching mid-way into the 2nd season live on ESPN ( I won’t lie I was thinking about changing to another channel, but I decided to give it a try).

The first thing that caught my eye was how fast the drones were soaring and changing directions as they maneuvered through the designated 3-dimentional obstacle course, and what led me to continue watching until the end of the episode was how quickly a drone pilot’s position in the race can change from leading in the race to no longer being a part of it as they crash into an obstacle ( One thing I noticed as I watched the races was that a drone pilot must keep their composure while also taking risks to keep or take the lead over their opponents).

After my first observation of the DRL, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed watching it and I also love the originality in the way it was developed as a competitive event. So in the end I decided to watch most of the remaining episodes ( including the Finals) and saw the champion of the Season 2 crowned.



To make a long story short, when the new season of the DRL begins on September 6th, I will definitely be keeping an eye on the races as the season progresses.

It will be exciting to see if the DRL rookies have what it takes to keep up with the veterans, and also seeing if the reigning champion of the DRL will be able to defend his title as the best high-speed drone racer in the world ( You’ll get no spoilers from me!!! If you want to know who the DRL champion is you have to watch or research for yourself).

If you have time, please let me know what you think about the Drone Racing League ( if you have watched the show), or if you didn’t know about DRL before reading this post, let me know if you plan on watching it. Thank you in advanced for your comments!!!

  1. I can’t wait for it to start. I got my son to watch it with me last year and we went and got a drone that we could fly in first person with a live camera. It is nowhere near as fast, but still really fun. I think that this sport is just getting started and that they have done a really great job setting up the courses and the live action video capture. Great post. Keep up the good work.

    1. Yeah, I’m expecting this season of the DRL to be an exciting one. Thanks for taking the time out to read :).

  2. I had never heard of DRL, but I am going to take a look. I think that this will be exciting to watch. I have been wanting a drone, but kind of out of my budget right now, as I know I will not want a low end one. I really can’t wait, as I think it is going to be a blast. Thanks for sharing, I am definitely going to watch!

    1. No problem, I hope you enjoy watching the DRL the same way I did when I first saw it a year ago.
