After months of trial and error, hundreds of broken motors and fiery crashes, DRL’s RacerX succeeds in setting a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title.
Average speed of 165.2MPH / 265.87kmph with a fastest oneway top speed of 179.78mph.
In order to set the achievement, RacerX needed to fly back and forth across a measurement course of 100 m (328 ft.), with the official record set as the average of the top speed achieved on each of those flights.
The record-setting RacerX represents the culmination of years of technological innovation by the DRL Techops team.
Outside of the power system, the rest of the build is quite simple, using only a few dozen parts.
Handmade in NYC: 3D printed TPU, carbon fiber, copper wire and fasteners.
Large ESC's are mounted around the center pod for minimal drag.
With 8-10S can approximately generate up to 43,000k RPM with APC 5x4.5BN.
