drone racing in malls

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 drones taking on the urban scene.

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.

Drone racing in malls

Next up in our series, let’s explore some fun with drones in more of an urban setting, more specifically, drone racing in malls.

Before we begin, let’s get a few things out of the way:

Drone legal and safety

Awesome idea:

In this video by David Windestal, he takes drone racing to the next level by racing around an abandoned mall. The great scenery and fast-paced action makes this video one of the greats. We will never condone trespassing, but if you can get into a large abandoned facility, you totally should, and send us a link to your drone video.

Stupid idea:

This video takes drone racing to a somewhat stupid level by introducing drones into a busy and crowded environment. BOTGRINDER FPV’s flying doesn’t end up going to plan as he, along with his friends, get kicked out by mall security. That’s a best case ending, we all know what sort of injuries can happen when these propellers meet skin, if nothing else.

Awesome idea / stupid 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.
