It is true that today any commercial drone can reach speeds much higher than what we can imagine or need in most cases, speeds that unfortunately are not enough if what we want is to compete at a professional level where drones are much more powerful and faster than we can imagine.
To put all this in perspective, today I want to tell you about the record that has just been achieved by the one that has been cataloged as the fastest drone in the world, a DRL RacerX who has been able to achieve a maximum speed of 288 kilometers per hour in a straight line, an impressive record that to date had not been achieved by any of the devices that usually compete in such prestigious leagues within the sector such as the Drone Racing League.
DRL RacerX manages to enter the Guinness Book of Records after reaching a maximum speed of 288 kilometers per hour
As a detail to tell you that despite the fact that the maximum speed reached by the DRL RacerX, as has been shown, is 288 kilometers per hour, the truth is that in the Guinness Book of Records will appear as of 263 kilometers per hour Because, as has already been indicated, the average speed is taken into account during a 100-meter course.
If at this point you ask why any company or person may want to develop a drone capable of reaching such a top speed, no matter how much it is in a straight line and at a specific moment, the truth is that we have the answer precisely in the use that will be given to drones such as the DRL RacerX that is none other than participating in the Drone Racing League, a competition where the winner receives a $ 100.000 prize money.
