Watch: This drone racer testing his skills might make you feel a little queasy

A drone driver has released awesome footage of the training he goes through to perfect his skills.

Tobias Klostermann, from Bad Orb in Germany, has his first race later this year – but he’s got a fair few work hours in front of the controls before then.

“Watching my own flights afterwards is a good way to improve and see what I could do better,” Klostermann told the Press Association.

He started racing about a year and a half ago but his skilful hobby recently became something more serious.

“Yesterday I registered for my very first race on December 8 – and that boosts my motivation very, very much,” he said.
