(SOUNDBITE) (Russian) CONTEST PARTICIPANT, NATALYA ASTAKHOVA, SAYING:"It's a lot of fun, from the outside it may not be so clear, but when you are inside, it becomes really fun to talk and race with the guys, learn from their experience about new technological things. As for the high cost, it is expensive, but when compared with snowboards and skis, it is certainly cheaper. But more expensive than knitting."
Drone racing became an official sport in 2017
recognized by the International Federation of Aeronautics
