Nissan GT-R Drone Is Quicker Than the Car

The second decade of the 21th century will be known to the posterity as the drone age. These things started out as surveillance and then killing machines in the battlefields and now they are found in every facet of our daily lives, especially motoring. So check out this new Nissan GT-R drone, built to keep up with the sports car as it goes around the track.

Why? Because a first-person video of the car going round the track, like you see in the video games, will probably get more hits on the YouTube. Simple as that. Silly purposes aside tough, the Nissan GT-R drone is a bit of an engineering marvel since not only it can keep up with the high-performance sports car, it accelerates way faster than it. The drone makes 62 mph from nought in 1.3 seconds!

Here the drone, piloted by James Bowles, the 2015 British National Drone Racing champion, takes on the real GT-R, driven by Nissan NISMO driver Ricardo Sanchez, around a purpose-built 1.2 mile course at Silverstone:

The drone can’t beat the 196 mph top speed of the car, but it can still reach 115 mph which is very impressive for its size. The reason this thing is so quick is partly due to the race tuned configuration and low-drag canopy, and partly down to the four propellers mated with 2000kV XNova motors and race specification Sky-Hero quadcopter frame.
