Digital drone racing – should you try it?
Digital drone racing has been surrounded by a lot of excitement over the last few months. Hearing the words ‘CONNEX’ or ‘ProSight’ immediately gets attention and generates conversation.
Everything we have heard about them has been positive. But is it all hype? We wanted to find out whether it is worth you investing your money in the CONNEX ProSight.

We filmed this at the International Drone Expo, where we put on a huge drone race with MultiGP. Part of the day was an all digital race – the first ever held in downtown Los Angeles!
Part of the day was an all digital race – the first ever held in downtown Los Angeles! The racers came out in droves to fly our tight technical course using the ProSight. In this race Bapu was victorious.
CONNEX ProSight is made up of a delay-free 720p30 FPV HD camera, delay-free HD transmitter, and digital HD recorder.
These work together to provide a crystal clear view of a course.
Sarah spoke on a drone racing panel at the International Drone Expo and compared flying using the ProSight to watching an HDTV as opposed to a black and white television. This pretty much sums it up.
Being able to see clearly makes it more likely to see and react to obstacles and so win a race.
CONNEX ProSight is compatible with all popular HDMI based Goggles and monitors and supports a line of sight range of 1000ft to 3000ft.
We asked the racers at the IDE Drone Racing CONNEX Cup whether they would recommend the system and the collective response was a huge YES.
