Extremely rich Direct TV Internet designer and Miami Dolphins proprietor Stephen Ross supposes it may, and has put $1 million in the first round of financing for New York startup The Drone Racing League through his speculation firm RSE Ventures, reports The Wall Street Journal. Like comparative associations, the League races little automatons that can hit velocities of up to 70 mph and are flown with the guide of goggles that transmit a live feature bolster from the art to the pilot (otherwise called FPV or first individual perspective hustling). The startup has effectively held a little trial to keep running with six pilots in a distribution center in Yonkers this mid year, and is wanting to hold its first open race not long from now, gathering income from ticket deals, sponsorship, and media bargains.
