I was thinking today that the Drone Racing League or any of the other ones on TV has not (no pun intended) taken off at all. I tried watching two of them on different nights and could only watch 10 minutes as it was extremely boring. I know ESPN and some other's have invested a bunch of money into it, but I am not sure it will make it. Your thoughts?

I enjoy the show and admire the skill it takes to fly that fast thru obstacles using goggles.

I dont plan my day around the programming, but I find it fascinating.

My opinion is that 2 or 3 lap heat racing does not make for good TV. The races aren't long enough and the side stories between the races are bit boring and take the focus of what the program is about - racing.

Now if they had larger/longer courses and made the race say a 30 minute or 45 minute race with "pit stops" where battery changes took place, then maybe they might have something.

I would like to see some figure 8 racing... more crashing. That is all we like to see in NASCAR.

The video is very disjointed and race progress is not well documented. Races are too short and hard to follow. I want to love this, but I only find it interesting when I am flying courses.

I watch... but only for a few moments... and yeah it gets boring after a while for me as well... I think the reason is that there is no real risk, no one gets hurt, not even so much as a scratch... and no one looses any significant amount of money (like world poker Championships)... if any at all.

I think if they put the pilots in a gimbal that responds to the 3D movements of the drone (and throw them around a bit) maybe that would make it more fun to watch... also give them an electrical shock every time they hit something or wreck...

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...
