A British teenager has won the first “World Drone Prix” in Dubai after beating 150 teams in Dubai.
Engadget reports that the winner, 15-year-old Luke Bannister, will receive $250,000 (£174,000) in prize money.
Drone racing works by attaching camera to the drones. Pilots wear a special screen that looks like a VR headset to “see” what the drone sees as they steer it around a course.
Here’s a video of Bannister winning the tournament in Dubai:
