Racing Drones Are Built For Speed And Agility
In contrast to photography/video drones, which are more concerned with hovering and steady filming, Racing Drones are built for speed and agility. A quad copter designed for photography will normally have four motors arranged in an X configuration, each one equally spaced away. A racing model’s four motors are often arranged in an H-pattern to propel the drone forward rather than upward. The number of propeller blades is another distinct feature of drone racing. Instead of using 2-blade propellers, 3- or 4-blade propellers have shorter diameters that enable smaller frames with better acceleration and maneuverability.
Drones are able to accelerate and manoeuvre with incredible speed and agility due to their small weight and powerful electric motors. This results in extremely delicate handling and necessitates a pilot with quick reflexes and a steady hand. Since Racing Drones constantly fly forward and the operator needs to be able to navigate, the cameras are likewise placed at the front of the drone. Drones used for photography typically have top-notch cameras mounted beneath their bodies on gimbals, allowing the drone to capture while hovering.
