Father and son from South Africa have created the world's fastest drone, reaching a speed of 480 km/h

Mike and Luke Bell, father and  son from South Africa, created the fastest drone in the world with an average maximum speed of 480.23 km/h. The drone is called Peregreen 2 and received the official title of the Guinness Book of Records as the fastest land quadcopter with battery-powered remote control.

Its first version — Peregreen — reached a maximum speed of 397 km/h, but was never officially recognized by the Guinness Book of Records.

To be officially recognized as a record holder by the Guinness Book of Records, the drone had to successfully complete two series of flights in opposite directions, to overcome headwinds and headwinds.

The actual maximum speed measured by the drone during these two launches was 510 km/h, which means it can fly 142 meters in one second.

Body carbon fiber drone makes it light and easy to control. It was printed on a 3D printer in the workshop, combined with motors, batteries and completely changed the shape of the drone to make it more aerodynamic.
