The Drone Racing League (DRL), the global professional drone racing circuit, today unveiled the DRL Racer4, the next generation racing drone. The DRL Racer4 marks the league’s fourth iteration, high-speed FPV (First Person View) drone, which can accelerate from 0 – 90 MPH in under a second. The world’s top twelve pilots will race a fleet of 600 custom-built DRL Racer4 drones throughout the 2019 DRL Allianz World Championship Season, which premieres on NBC and Twitter this Sunday, August 11 at 2pm ET.
Also, for the first time ever, DRL has entered the consumer drone market and developed a new exclusive FPV drone for fans: The DRL Racer4 Street ($599) is a street-ready version of the Racer4, available for pre-order on Kickstarter today. Adrenaline junkies, FPV pilots, and luxury-tech aficionados can click Back this Project to get their hands on the DRL Racer4 Street and race like the pros.
“We’re incredibly excited to launch the DRL Racer4 and the street model for everyone to experience the thrill and speed of professional drone racing. The DRL Racer4 will make our 2019 DRL Allianz World Championship Season more competitive than ever and finally give our fans what they’ve been asking us for: a DRL drone they can fly,” said DRL CEO & Founder, Nicholas Horbaczewski.
