Drone Racing League’s new racer reaches 90 mph in one second

As the Drone Racing League enters its fourth season, it is premiering a new drone all competitors will make use of and is capable of accelerating to 90 mph in less than one second. The acceleration is so rapid the league is installing an LED lighting panel on the drone to make sure it remains visible. In Drone Racing League competitions, all participants use the same model drone, and so it is up to each competitor to manage how the drone maneuvers through tight spots such as hallways and tunnels as seen on the DRL courses. The drone is controlled via remote. Its enhanced speed capability is thanks to an advanced powertrain, according to DRL CEO and Founder, Nicholas Horbacweski.Horbacweski said there would be some “exciting” changes to the 2019 season.According to the league, the Racer4 Street version will also soon be available to the public. The league is currently launching a Kickstarter campaign to launch the new racer.
