After months of trial and error, hundreds of broken motors and fiery crashes, DRL’s RacerX succeeds in setting a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title.
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title.
Average speed of 163.5mph with a fastest oneway top speed of 179.6mph.
In order to set the achievement, RacerX needed to fly back and forth across a measurement course of 100 m (328 ft.), with the official record set as the average of the top speed achieved on each of those flights.
The record-setting Racer X represents the culmination of years of technological innovation by the DRL Techops team.
