Blink and you would miss that drone: Yes, it's that fast!
Want to know why you couldn't see that drone? Because you blinked.

Yes, that's true, Racing League's new drone named RacerX has just set a new world record in speeds of drones - a whooping 180 miles per hour.

The Guinness World record was created yesterday in New York when the drone performed drag races along a 100-meter course.

Some technical details about the drone:

Average top speed - 163.5 miles per hour.

Powered by - 1,300 mAh battery.

Controlled by - quadcopter remote.

Fastest recorded speed - 179.3 miles per hour.

But, what if you miss it? Well, you can hear it. Yes, the little rotors that power the super powerful drone make up to 46,000 revolutions per minute. The drone was tested earlier as well, but the prototype had burst into flames while the developers were trying to make it hit the top speed during tests.

The drone has been developed by Drone Racing League, and with this drone, they have created a Guinness World Record. But as of now, the Drone Racing League will not be using this drone in the championships.

The drone's top speed in reality is 179.6 miles per hour. But in order to be recognised by the Guinness World Records, the designed drone had to fly back and forth across a 328-foot long course. The average of both top speeds together was calculated to be the actual top speed.

If this hasn't surprised you enough, here is another fact: The Racer X is even faster than the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro.
