Racing drone is one of the RC drones categories, which pursues the fast speed. Recently, many countries have launched Racing drone race, and manufacturers are also releasing their fastest rc drone to meet those geeks needs. Currently, a racing drone, DRL RacerX is claimed to be the fastest racing drone built by DRL team. Its speed can be up to 289km/h, even those high-end car can compete with it.
DRL RacerX has created the fastest speed which has been recorded by Guinness, winning the title for the Fastest ground speed by a battery-powered remote-controlled quadcopter. It has 800g weight, 46,000 RPMs rotating speed, 10S (42V) Powertrain, BeeRotor 80A (10S) ESCs / BLHeli with Multishot, TMotor F80 2407 2500kv, and 1300mah 2 x 5S R-Line Tattu Lithium Polymer Batteries.
In order to confirm Guinness record, it needs to fly back and forth in 100 meters, the real record sets up the highest speed of each flight in average. In the early test, DRL claimed that when it reached the extreme battery heat, the prototype of RaceX will explode in the air. And he said it is happy that they have applied the current technology to the reality, because their speed is the fastest. As for its price, right now we have no idea, wait for more news about its official.
