Quadcopter FPV Racing is like real-life Wipeout

I was just blown away when somebody linked this:

I had a vague idea that quadcopters were a thing, but not that people are racing with them and even using cameras to get a first-person view. That's just amazing. I have no idea if there's any kind of scene for this over here, I'm going to have to research a bit. I'm assuming if there is, it's very tiny and/or far away from my location.

Very cool.

How's much does the gear cost?
