A racing drone is a small quadcopter unmanned aerial vehicle i.e. UAV, which is designed for FPV i.e. (first person view) racing events. Racing drones come in different types, primarily the following: ready-to-fly (RTF), bind-and-fly (BNF), do-it-yourself (DIY), plug-and-play (PNP), and plug–and-fly (PNF) drones. RTF racing drones are primarily for beginners who want to learn the method to handle racing drones and participate in events. On the other hand, DIY racing drones are designed for experts who want to build their own customized racing drones. A racing drone has multiple components, such as an FPV camera, remote controller, flight controller, video transmitter and receiver, drone frame, battery, propellers, and FPV goggles. A DIY racing drone can be built from these components.
