This six episode miniseries was shot over the course of a month on-location Chicago, England, and Ohio. Each episode follows professional drone racers who teach video gaming influencers how to fly racing drones that reach speeds over 100mph. The thought was their hand-eye coordination skills would transfer to the emerging sport, but it turns out it’s tougher than it looks to fly at an elite level.
