My healthy: Nicholas Horbaczewski

The Drone Racing League founder shares his must-haves for adventures.

Some people love adventure, but for Nicholas Horbaczewski, it’s a way of life. The founder of the Drone Racing League—a professional circuit for drone racers across the world, which he likens to a cross between Star Wars and Formula One—is a licensed skydiver, goes on epic ice climbing trips each year, and helped write a travel guide to the Australian Outback. Horbaczewski spends most days of each month traveling the world to find and set up drone courses for the DRL, which premieres its third season on September 5. Here, he shares his essentials for staying healthy on the road.
