    First-person drone racing looks pretty awesome no matter where you’re flying, but this neon night course built by Extreme Drone Circuit makes for one of the coolest views yet.

    As the drone zips through the multi-colored obstacles in various geometric shapes, it looks like something straight out of Tron (something the video makers acknowledge with music from the series). The rings also remind me of Sega Saturn classic ‘Nights into Dreams.’

    I can only imagine it must be an even trippier experience for whoever is wearing the first person view system. Just another one to add to the list of cool drone-racing footage.
