I say it's a sport, but it may be too early to call I feel what makes a sport a sport and not just a game of a hobby is the general public consensus. FPV racing falls into two categories,
1. an E-sport (Like League of Legends or CS GO) where it is purely simulated and reaction based. You do not physically experience the g-forces or damage when you crash(which means more intense racing.)
2. A Motorsport with elements of a robotics competition. Where custom engineered aircraft dominate the skies like F1 or air racing.
You cannot put FPV racing into one category without the other. You lack the danger of F1 or air racing, however the digital screens you depend on aren't purely virtual, with the real quad flying through a real track. Until people get use to this weird new blended sport, the argument can't be won.

I don't think its a sport.
Sports are "Physical based challenges" Chess.. NOT a sport... Football yes a sport. Video games NOT a sport. Baseball yes a sport.
Flying a drone is a mental thing so its more in the challenge category if you are solo and more a competition or event if more then one person is involved with piloting. If you say its physical because you use your hands to fly then you are also lumping Knitting in to your "Sport" category and I feel sorry for you if that's what gets your adrenaline pumping.BILLS LAW: Bils Law specifically states that it covers ANYTHING that Murphy may have forgot, omitted, or plain didn't know in the first place. There fore if it can happen it WILL happen to ME.
