Drone racing Star Wars-style

If you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise. That's because drone racing is taking off in a big way... in France.

Airgonay is a French-based club that specialises in fast-moving gadgets and action-packed activities. They've developed a new form of remote-controlled fun with these racing drones.

It looks fast and furious and you need nerves of steel to get over the finish line.
