    Here at Motherboard, we've been watching the emerging hobby-sport of first-person drone racing ever since we first strapped on VR goggles in the Bronx, New York, and flew tiny robots across a park in the middle of winter. That's why, when we heard Canada's first organized drone racing would be taking place in a town called Clinton, Ontario, in rural Canada, we sent VICE Canada's Patrick McGuire to document the festivities.
