Dubai is set to host the first ever massive meet up of drone racers with a huge prize fund just waiting to be won in the skies

The drones are coming, and most of them will be heading to Dubai next week to compete in the first ever Drone Prix.

There's a prize fund of $1 million and the chance to test your mettle against the best of the world when it comes to flying drones around really, really fast in the desert. Here's a typically glossy video to show you how its done.

That looks like a video game we would definitely play and the idea of shutting down a major city so that drones can take over the streets is just incredibly appealing. If you think you have what it takes sadly it's too late to get in for this year, with all teams already registered. 100 will be whittled down to 32 who will then compete on the 11th and 12th of March for the grand prize of $250,000. 8th place gets $12,500, which isn't half bad.

We're expecting to see some pretty cool videos posted online.
