Episode 1 (Level 1 - Miami Lights - Qualifying Round) is out today
I was watching video of the World Drone Prix and somehow, it just seems more exciting when there's tonnes of people there and they're all experiencing it in real time. People can't view the DRL streams in real time because they're recording in high def and releasing the footage later. It's like watching a recording of last night's basketball game after everyone else has seen it - just not the same!
I hear ya. At first, I was really excited about DRL. And I still am, but when WDP came along, seeing the crowds gathering and all the live event coverage made me feel the same way. Having said that, I think there's definitely a place for DRL still. It probably caters more to the online gamer generation, who may demand higher quality video, and be less concerned about watching in real time. I could be totally wrong, though. Guess we'll see as time goes by!
Apparently this video came out a while back when DRL was launching, but I didn't see it until now. Kinda cool - a bit like the trailer for World Drone Prix
Although it doesn't look like either the porsche or the drone are trying too hard. Might just be the filming angles, but I swear that 911 was crawling toward the finish :)
