It appears that Nissan’s supercar is not the only one that gets the GT-R badging and credentials. Called the GT-R drone, it was specifically built to keep up with the new 2017 GT-R and features a custom racing configuration and low-drag canopy.
Designed by Tornado XBlues Racing, the GT-R racing drone can reach 0 – 100 km/h in just 1.3 seconds, allowing it to easily tail its automotive equivalent with ease. It’s powered by four propellers which are driven by a 2000 kV XNova motors. Its frame, on the other hand is a race-specific Sky-Hero quadrocopter.
In demonstrating the racing drone’s agility, Nissan pitted the drone against the 2017 GT-R in Silverstone. The GT-R has higher top speed of 315 km/h compared to the drone’s 185 km/h. But the drone does excel in maneuvering as it has a turning circle of 0.3m, beating the GT-R’s 12.2m.
