DRL Racer4 is a next-generation racing drone launched by the Drone Racing League (DRL), a global, professional FPV (First Person View) elite drone racing circuit. It is the fourth iteration, high-speed FPV (First Person View) drone that can accelerate from 0 to 90 MPH in less than a second.
Hand-made in the USA by DRL’s team of world-class drone engineers, the DRL Racer4 features a hard-edged carbon-fiber canopy that radiates with 1,000 colorful LED lights capable of animating into designs and patterns. The Racer 4 generates more than 16 pounds of thrust through its upgraded power system: 21v 5s 70C Lipo, 2510 1250kv motors and 7x4x3 inch props. With its plug-n-play electronics, the new modular drone can be repaired within 15 minutes, allowing pilots to push the limits of competitive racing.
Throughout the 2019 DRL Allianz World Championship Season, which premieres on NBC and Twitter this Sunday, August 11 at 2 pm ET, the world’s top twelve pilots will race a fleet of 600 custom-built DRL Racer4 drones.
Elite DRL pilots will navigate the DRL Racer4 drones through LED-lit gates along complex, three-dimensional tracks— blasting through narrow tunnels, spinning around hairpin-tightened turns and diving down buildings at alarmingly fast rates in iconic venues and legendary sports arenas, including Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fl, Allianz Field in St. Paul, MN, and Chase Field in Phoenix, AZ.
DRL has also entered the consumer drone market for the first time ever and developed a new exclusive FPV drone for fans: DRL Racer4 Street ($599) is a street-ready version of the Racer4, available for pre-order on Kickstarter today. Adrenaline junkies, FPV pilots and luxury-tech enthusiasts can click Back this Project to get their hands on the DRL Racer4 Street and race like the pros.
“We’re incredibly excited to launch the DRL Racer4 and the street model for everyone to experience the thrill and speed of professional drone racing. The DRL Racer4 will make our 2019 DRL Allianz World Championship Season more competitive than ever before and finally give our fans what they’ve been asking us for: a DRL drone they can fly,” said DRL CEO & Founder, Nicholas Horbaczewski.
