In 2017, drones are getting faster, more fun and easier to fix – Engadget

UVify were featured in another Drone article at Engadget during the Drone Rodeo proceeding CES 2017. Below is a snippet from the article.

The star of this year’s show was undoubtedly UVify. I already got to meet with its team ahead of time, to try out its no-compromises racing drone called Draco. But there’s only so much you can do in the parking lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center. A dedicated aerodrome for drones (which is where the rodeo was held) is an entirely different matter.

I already talked about how the Draco was an exciting idea. A racing drone that can open the sport to a whole new audience is going to see many more pilots picking up the sticks. At the rodeo, I had the pleasure of “riding” along with UVify’s pro pilot, and it’s an incredible experience. By “riding,” I mean I was wearing a pair of video goggles with a live feed in real time from the drone’s camera. Imagine backflips, barrel-rolls and nose-dives, all at breakneck speed. It’s like being on an invisible rollercoaster, except you’re just… standing there.
