Oh, World Drone Prix, you had us at "hello." By which we mean, you had us at that video of a McLaren 650S Spider racing a quadcopter through Dubai at night. We were going to watch your drone races anyway. You didn't have to then turn around and release a new video showing the elaborate racecourse and freakishly green grass of your desert racing paradise.

Qualifying for the Drone Grand Prix kicked off on March 8 and continued through March 9, with the races taking place over the 12 and 13th. Sure enough, the Drone Grand Prix organizers released a concise highlight reel from each of the first qualifying days. Worth a watch.
