what does it mean to create a safe drone racing event? 

On this website, The Drone Racing League shares their extensive experience in drone racing and event management, introducing a systematic approach to drone racing safety called, “The DRL Safety Protocol”. There are three key principles of The DRL Safety Protocol: Planning, Procedure, and Production. The site will address each of these principles of safety and discuss how they impact your drone racing event. The DRL Safety Protocol is based on the interdependence of these principles, so it is critical to review each one and understand their relationship. We suggest reading through this website at least twice to properly understand how all of the principles work together.
