Mechanical engineer and drone enthusiast Ryan Lademann created the world’s fastest unmanned aerial vehicle, with which he got into the Guinness Book of Records.

Weighing just 490 grams, the Lademann XLR V3 drone looks different than most quadcopters. It resembles a small rocket with four engines, which are also aerodynamically shaped with low drag.

Below is a small stand that does not interfere with the rotation of the blades. It takes off and hovering in the air like a regular quadcopter, but then turns on its side and flies at great speed.

Lademann stated that the custom chassis, interior layout and construction allowed the record to be set. He used a Tattu R-Line 6S LiPo battery pack, Spedix ESCs, Cobra 2207 2450kW motors, an HGLRC Zeus flight controller, a Beitian BN-180 GPS, a Caddx Ant FPV camera. It is reported that all electronic components for this drone can be purchased for $400, including a set of glasses for $120.

To set the official world record, the drone had to fly in two opposite directions to eliminate the help of the wind, while maintaining the same height – so that it would not be helped by gravity. Velocities in two opposite directions were averaged to obtain the final result.

As a result, the Lademann XLR V3 set the world average speed record for a quadcopter, which amounted to 360.5 km/h. The instantaneous top speed was 414 km/h.
