Drone race in England – level 1

18-05-2016 07:00

A drone race takes place in England. It is a relay race. There are four teams. They race around a course. The drones fly faster than 97 kilometres per hour.

The pilots have first-person-view headsets. These are things that you wear on your head. They let you see what the drones see.

The sport is becoming more popular. The pilots say that this sport is for everyone. You can be young or old. If you can see, you can fly.

Difficult words: take place (to happen), relay race (a type of race when members of a group take turns), course (the route for a race).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
