As the name might suggest, the Drone Racing League likes drones that can go fast and offers racers with the opportunity to compete to see who has the fastest.

One of those racers is the DRL’s own director of product, Ryan Gury who worked alongside engineers from DRL to build the world’s fastest drone, the RacerX. it achieved just today, winning a Guinness World Record for being the “fastest ground speed by a battery-powered remote-controlled quadcopter.”

It achieved just today, winning a Guinness World Record for being the “fastest ground speed by a battery-powered remote-controlled quadcopter. How fast does the drone need to go for that you ask? Well, just around 163.5mph on average.

It can do that because of its extremely low weight of just 800 grams and its top rotor speeds, which can achieve up to 46,000 RPMs and allowed it to hit a top speed of 179.6mph on the day.
