Description

With races taking place in empty car parks, warehouses and old factories,
drone racing is a rapidly growing underground sport. But
it's also gone above ground with international championships beckoning
from Los Angeles to Dubai, offering by huge prizes.
Twelve-year-old Carson Lox thinks he has the potential to be a champion
. except his drone is not powerful enough, and he can't afford
anything better. Desperate to make their mark, Trix (Tracy to
her friends, and the team's engineer) and Beagle (or Edward as
he hates being called, the team manager) help Carson break into an
old Air Force scrapyard to salvage spare parts. They find the remains
of a hi-tech drone that needs patching up and use it to enter
the league.
But there is something unusual about their new drone - it has a mind
of its own. The team soon discovers that it has Artificial Intelligence,
with a snappy personality way beyond Siri or Alexa, and
it's more than eager to help them win the upcoming league championship.

With a taste of victory, Team Carson suddenly find themselves on
the International Drone Racing circuit. With huge prize money at
stake and venues in exotic locations to race, life seems almost too
good.
And it is. Now that they've seen the drone in action, the military
wants the drone back for their own purposes, and they will stop
at nothing to get it. How will a few kids - Carson and his friends
- be able to protect their drone?
