Mexican drone sports supporters call for International "Chopper Out" competitions during the "Death Races"

From the video account: "During the Baja 500 while chasing from a helicopter a fellow race team was struck by drone. The helicopters tail rotor started to fail and with quick reactions the pilot was able to safely maneuver the helicopter to the ground without any injuries. Being that the helicopter couldn't fly now we had winch it on to a what normally is a car trailer."

On a social media post, the drone operator claimed the action is part of a new association of drone owners in Mexico, who are now offering prizes to "take out" gringo helicopters during the off-road racing events called SCORE.
