Drones zipped around the old Western Hotel in downtown Las Vegas Sunday.

The inaugural Extreme Drone Racing Competition featured dozens of drones flying through a specially designed course. Drone pilots race by tracking their drone through special video goggles that see the race from the drone's perspective.

17 pilots competed for cash and prizes.
