Due to advancement and dominance of drones these days, first person drone racing is turning out to be a very fair sport (Well, if you can name it that). It is becoming a thing nowadays; however the real question is that how much speed can be attained by these racing drones. Nissan has customized a Nissan GT-R drone which is capable of going 0 to 100km/hr in just 1.3 seconds and hence has taken drone racing to the whole new level.
The 2015 British National Drone Racing champion, James Bowles steered the drone set to race from the start. Clunky wheels cannot compete with the four 2,000 kV motors on the GT-R racing drone or can they? The sole reason for building the drone was to keep pace with the 2017 Nissan GT-R, however, you need to keep on reminding yourself that Nissan is publicizing a car, not a posh new quadcopter. In addition to this, it is not really an amazing advertisement if a “fast” car is defeated in a track race by a “quadcopter”, and therefore, the four-wheeled GT-R won the race.
Though you might be thinking that drone racing cannot become a thing ever, however, you will be shocked to know how much fun it is to watch it. It is also getting a firm grip in the industry of entertainment sports.
Take a look at the race between the drone and a real GT-R below:
