Drone racing is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. And the 2018 edition of the FAI Drone Racing World Cup was the biggest yet, involving a total of 669 pilots from 41 countries, up from 435 pilots from 37 countries last year. 

Won by French pilot Killian Rousseau, the 2018 competition included 22 events, kicking off with April's Indonesia Drone Racing World Cup in Bali, and closing with October's Phoenix World Cup event in Prilep, Macedonia. 

Competitors at each event participated in a series of races flying multi-rotor drones with at least three power-driven propellers and weighing no more than 1kg. 

We can't wait to see how epic next year's competition will be, so stand by for news about the 2019 FAI Drone Racing World Cup!
