Three separate rooms at Alexandra Palace were used to set up the mile-long course for the final, as the drones raced at speeds of up to 80mph.

The results of the final are strictly embargoed, so drone enthusiasts will have to tune in to watch the DRL final from London Alexandra Palace, which will be aired on Saturday 29th July on Sky Sports Mix at 6pm, and repeated at 10pm. The series is also due to be repeated in the run-up to Christmas.
