There are a number of hobbyist drones that have hit the market recently. And while quite a few of them are rather neat, they’re not all entirely capable. Sure, they can take a pretty picture of the earth below, but that’s about as far as it goes, as they’ve sacrificed much in the way of flying abilities in favor of being consumer-friendly. Which is fine, if you’re into that sort of thing. Racing drones, however, are in a class of their own. And UVify’s Draco looks like it might just be at the top of that class.
A good deal more technologically advanced than its casual counterparts, this flying machine is to drones what an F1 racer is to cars. In fact, it was designed by literal rocket scientists, making it perhaps the fastest ready-to-fly ever made. Out of the box, it can fly at speeds up to 100 miles per hour and is capable of making 360 degree flips. And it’s the only one on the market capable of doing so. But one of its coolest features is its modular construction. The propellers, appendages, and battery can all be removed and/or replaced with ease and brevity. Whether you’re a hardcore racer or you just want to create jaw-dropping aerial videos, this killer carbon fiber drone is your best bet. It’s available on preorder right now for $499 plus shipping.
