FPV Drone Racers Take On Syfy UK’s ‘Killjoys’ Challenge

Drone racing takes on a fun Syfy Twist

Tonight will see the long awaited UK premier of ‘Killjoys’ on Syfy UK.

The series premièred last year on Syfy in the USA and it was one show that my good friend Marx Pyle was excitedly telling me about for most of the summer.

The show focuses on a small team of bounty hunters known as Killjoys. But it was the shows world building that Marx was most impressed with and it is that aspect of the show, which won it a place in our recent best and worst of 2015 Podcast as one of the best series to premier in 2015.

The show has all sorts of technology featured, but one of the most loved are the drones that our heroes travel about in. To this end as part of their push to promote the series in the UK. Syfy challenged some of the UK’s best drone racers to put themselves in the shoes of the ‘Killjoys’. The video feature below will give you some idea of how it went as well as give you an insight into why ‘Drone’ racing is such a big deal.

It kind of reminds me of the old Playstation Game ‘Wipeout’. 


‘Killjoys’ premiers at 8pm 25 January on Syfy UK. Don’t miss it or your warrant will be served.
