Unlike existing drones that are difficult to control, the sensational Kyosho Drone Racer is controlled like an R/C car with a pistol-grip transmitter. Takeoff and auto-hover with one-touch control using ultrasonic sensors that remove the frustration of learning complicated flying techniques. Now you can experience the fun of drone flying at your own pace.
The Kyosho Drone Racer is equipped with advanced ultrasonic sensors, 6-axis gyroscope (3-axis angle speed sensors, 3-axis acceleration sensors), barometric pressure sensor and four fast response mini coreless motors. Speed switching function provides a choice between “Easy Mode” and “Active Mode” and delivers direct intuitive flight control.
Altitude is automatically maintained with ultrasonic and barometric pressure sensors. Altitude setting of 35cm or 60cm can be selected with a switch on the R/C system and one-touch control is used for takeoff, hovering and landing. Some people may feel frustrated in learning drone flying techniques.Kyosho’s newly developed technology*(patent pending) removes these barriers so anyone can enjoy the fun of flying drones. *according to Kyosho research
H-type chassis with split upper and lower sections and left-right propellers connected on one propeller arm allow the propeller unit angle to be changed between: 0°, 10°, 20°. Use more stability (0°/ max speed : 30km/h) or more speed (20°/ max speed : 34.5km/h) as a racing weapon.
The Kyosho Drone Racer is not designed for high altitude performance, but for people to enjoy flying safely within their field of vision near the ground. A total safety system includes: removable propeller guards; “PROPELLER AUTO STOP SYSTEM” that activates in case you lose control of the throttle; “ANGLE EMERGENCY AUTO STOP SYSTEM” if the drone becomes inverted, and “RADIO CUT EMERGENCY AUTO STOP SYSTEM” in case the radio signal is lost. Weighing only 130g, the DRONE RACER is not subject to the Japanese aviation law so you can fly freely anywhere you like (except in restricted areas).*as at aviation laws 10th December 2015
DRONE RACER can connect to your (Windows) computer with the included USB cable to adjust flight settings. In addition, an optional cable can also be used to connect to an Android terminal with a USB host function to adjust settings.
