【无人机的速度与激情:最高时速289.7公里打破吉尼斯纪录】近日,无人机竞速联盟(DRL)宣布,他们的RacerX取得了由电池驱动、远程控制四旋翼无人机的最快对地速度,创造了新的吉尼斯世界纪录,官方成绩为每小时163.5英里(约合263公里)。这架重约0.9公斤无人机最高时速曾达179.6英里(约合289公里),但吉尼斯世界纪录官方记录的成绩是它在来回飞行100米时的平均最高时速。

The world's fastest drone: Incredible footage shows Drone Racing League craft hitting record 179.6mph

  •  DRL hand built the 800g drone for the attempt
  • First prototypes burst into flames at their highest point of acceleration
  • Attempt evenutually managed to hit record setting speed in Queens park 

Drone racing has become a big budget sport - and its biggest league has revealed the world's fast machine.

Called the RacerX, the craft recently set a Guinness world Record of 179.9mph - despite weighing just 800 grams.

The first prototypes of the drone burst into flames when hitting its highest point of acceleration, but the latest model, flown in Cunningham Park in Queens, New York, hit the record speed.

The Drone Racing League (DRL),  set the record using the specially designed battery-powered remote-controlled quadcopter.

It was hand-built by DRL's Director of Product, Ryan Gury, and DRL's team of engineers.

'We're thrilled to put our proprietary technology to the test, as we're all about speed and pushing the limits of drone design here at DRL,' said Nicholas Horbaczewski, DRL CEO/Founder.

'The record-setting RacerX represents the culmination of years of technological innovation by our team of world class engineers, and we're very excited to unveil the fastest racing drone on earth.'

In order to set the record, the drone 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.

Commercially available drones, like the DJI Phantom 4, only fly up to 44.7 mph.

The official speed measured for the record was 163.5 miles per hour.

The record was set by the league as it enters its second year of operation.

In 2017 DRL is hosting a global series of six races, the Allianz World Championship, to be broadcast on ESPN, Sky Sports, ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE, Disney XD, OSN and other leading broadcast channels around the world.

Founded by Nicholas Horbaczewski in 2015, DRL is a privately held company headquartered in NYC.

In races it uses the DRL Racer3, a custom drone that can go from 0 to 80 mph in under a second.

It contains hundreds of LED light whuich are used to differentiate pilots.

Each race is made up of three events: qualifying, semifinals, and finals.

Within these rounds, the pilots will have to fly their drones through multiple heats of a complex course.

The races take place in large venues, like a football stadium or abandoned building.

These courses feature narrow halls and tunnels, sharp turns, and multi-level paths, requiring the drone to go up and down stairs and pass through gates.

The Drone Racing League (DRL), set the record using the specially designed battery-powered remote-controlled quadcopter.

In order to successfully complete a race, the pilots must fly their drones through each gate and checkpoint.

Missing the checkpoint or crashing will result in disqualification.

Points are tallied based on the checkpoints and the finish time.

At the end of the season, those with the most points accrued will compete in the world championship.

For the races, the DRL uses FPV – first person view, so the pilots can see the race track as if they were flying through it themselves.

Each pilot wears a pair of goggles, which displays live video from the camera aboard the drone, and uses a controller to operate the craft.

The drones are loaded with more than 100 colour-changing LEDs to differentiate between the pilots.
