You may know how to easily handle an average quadcopter, but flying a racing drone is completely different! While consumer drone are created for a better flying experience that is easy they lack agility and speed, but on the other hand racing drones provide this, but are difficult to fly without some expertise.
At CES 2017, UVify released one such amazing racing drone called the Draco, and the company wants to advance the drone racing with their technology and flying features. This drone is RTF and doesn’t need you to make any tweaks before flying, however small, and it even looks great as there are no wires or exposed batteries.
In racing conditions, the UVify Draco can fly at about 70MPH but when flying in a straight line, it can astonishingly reach 100 MPH! Other features that make it a great racing drone include a 40-channel FPV as well as configurable racing lights. It is also equipped with GPS, which lets it have some assisted flight modes.
Another great advantage of this drone is that even if you crash it or ding it while racing, you can easily replace its parts. Incase you damage an arm or motor, you can easily just clip a new one back in.
The drone features a carbon-fiber frame that makes it very tough and robust. While not the cheapest racing drone in the market, the UVify Draco is priced at $499, and it still isn’t very expensive specially looking at the features it comes with.
Draco will be shipped around summer this year, but you have the option of pre-ordering it right now. It comes in 2 version – the Draco and Draco HD, where the HD version comes with a better camera and real-time HD video streaming.
