Welcome to some weekend fun and entertainment with drones. We spend a lot of time scouring the web for news, information and more on all the great drones around the globe. In our travels, we encounter some fun and funny stuff, and we want to start sharing that with you. Today we will be taking a look at drones hanging around Red Bull racing teams.
No matter what the title says, we refer to this as our Good Idea / Bad Idea series, we just figured a new name was in order, suggestions welcome. Let it be known that we do not endorse or recommend anything we will post here, sort of a “do not try this at home” vibe, but somebody tried it, it was interesting or funny and here it is.
Drones and cars
Next up in our series, let’s explore some fun with drones competing with cars for the ultimate first place.
Before we begin, let’s get a few things out of the way:
Drone legal and safety
This video comes from the BlackSheep FPV team in collaboration with the Red Bull F1 team and MotoGP rider, Marc Marquez. The fast speed which F1 cars drive, along with the fast cinematic shots taken by the racing drone, make this video entertaining, to say the least.
This video is another one from the Red Bull racing team and OMV Performance Fuels taking on a racing drone with six Mercedes sports cars. The top speed of the cars is 155 mph, while the racing drone is only 90 mph, the drone puts up a good fight and the results show it all.

Good idea / bad idea wrap up
As always, we officially recommend you do not try this at home. We want you to always fly safe, to obey all drone laws, but also to have some fun. Of course, if you do try this, please share the details, it’s always fun to see some shenanigans.
If you think this entire series is a bad idea, let us know in the comments below. Otherwise, enjoy the crazy antics caught on film.
