For
those of you that are familiar with drones, you probably realize that
drone racing is becoming a respected sport in today’s world – it
comes to us, complete with ESPN coverage, which is pretty cool. Air
Hogs and DR1 Racing have partnered up in order to design the
first-ever FPV (first person view) toy racing drone – Air Hogs DR 1
FPV Drone with Headset. With this racing drone, users will be able to
experience what first-hand professional drone racing is all about –
that’s right, you will finally get to feel the rush of high speed
rushing with FPV streaming through the headset and a smartphone.

With
the new Air Hogs DR1 FPV Race Drone, the company is hoping to give
both beginners and hobbyists a real taste of the action. This drone
has been designed in order to get consumers involved in drone racing.
This gives fans throughout the world access to the sport, so they can
challenge themselves and race just like the pros do.

When
Will This Drone Be Available?

You
have to wait until fall 2017 in order to get your hands on the drone,
but trust us, from what we already know about Air Hogs DR1 FPV Drone
with Headset, the wait is well worth it. This drone will combine the
thrill of high-speed drone racing with an eye-in-in the sky
perspective that will be delivered to a virtual reality headset. When
the drone is released, it will cost a total of $99, which, if you’re
familiar with drones, you’d know that this is a good price.

Compatible

This
is compatible with iPhones and Android devices. There’s an
accompanying app that will allow the user to have a first-person view
of their flight path – hence the “FPV” you see in the name.
Individuals that use the headset will have an easier time when it
comes to adjusting altitude and direction than by having to rely on
line of sight alone

The
View

Wearing
the headset, it feels just like a VR headset. The headset should have
little, if any form of light leakage. The view will be surprisingly
shape and clear. When testing the device, some individuals reported a
slight fight-eye effects when the drone approached a sharp turn.

Great
for Advanced and Beginner Flyers

If
you’re an experienced pilot, flying this drone won’t be hard as
it looks precise enough in order to satisfy even those advanced
pilots. However, as previously stated, beginners can also fly this
drone. The device can take a couple of bumps and crashes without
being destroyed and it turns fairly easy.

At
the time of writing this review, unfortunately, Spin Master hasn’t
told us how much flight time you can expect from this drone. However,
if we go from the Mission Drone or the Air Hogs Helix Ion, we could
expect between 10-15 minutes in terms of battery life.

Conclusion

We
are really looking forward to the Air Hogs DR1 FPV Drone with
Headset. Once it takes flight, we can imagine it’s going to be the
type of drone you’re not going to want to put down. For more details of where to order go to kidtoybox.net
