Malaysia is not just joining the global drone racing scene—it's taking it vertical. YY Choy and Johnson Yap are at the forefront of this innovative twist, hosting Asia's inaugural vertical drone race. This next-gen sport offers racers an unmatched immersive experience, blurring the lines between virtual simulators and real-world racing. Beyond the tech and adrenaline, both emphasise its inclusivity, breaking age and gender norms. Despite initial challenges like high setup costs and limited awareness, they see a promising future, especially with potential governmental support integrating drone tech into STEM and TVET programs.
