GOODWOOD, UK (June 23, 2016) – Nissan currently denounced a GT-R Drone – one of a fastest accelerating FPV (First Person View) racing drones in a world.

Built to be means to keep adult with a new 2017 Nissan GT-R while filming on a track, a worker facilities a really latest in performance-enhancing technology, only like a automotive equivalent.

Custom designed by World Drone Prix Champions, Tornado XBlades Racing, a GT-R Drone uses a special competition tuned pattern and low-drag canopy to strech 100kph from a delay in only 1.3 seconds.

To uncover off a talents of both machines, a GT-R Drone took on a road-going supercar around a severe Silverstone circuit.

Both machines use implausible record and engineering to remove a limit performance, both in a true line and by corners. The GT-R automobile transfers energy from a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter 24-valve V6 to all 4 wheels; a GT-R Drone delivers implausible acceleration around 4 propellers corresponding with 2000kV XNova motors and competition selection Sky-Hero quadcopter frame.

While a worker can out accelerate a car, wheels shortly locate adult with rotors: The GT-R Drone has a tip speed of approximately 185kph, contra 315kph for a European indication car.

Even a implausible four-wheel-drive complement of a GT-R can’t compare a ultimate agilty of a drone, that is has a branch round of only 0.3 meters. Its tradition setup allows it to perform heart-stopping maneuvers with implausible pointing and agility.

Both machines will also be on arrangement during Goodwood Festival of Speed this week.
