In the past few years drones have gone from an expensive toy limited to hobbyists, to cool accessible machines. Case in point is Sweden’s Tilt drone, a racing drone that packs a big punch.
As you can imagine the Tilt is all about speed. The four quadcopter arms rotate forward, giving it a low profile and plenty of acceleration across the carbon fiber frame. The drone boasts speeds in excess of 110 KPH (68 MPH), hitting 100 KPH in just 3.7 seconds, faster than a Lamborghini. As proof, they put it on video.
The drone is produced by Inkonova, a product development and 3D printing consultancy company based in Stockholm, and is building up multirotor products with new tech and materials, like the Tilt’s carbon fiber frame.
The “Pro” version of the drone can be picked up for just under $400, with a less badass version for $329. I don’t know what I would do with a Tilt, other than crash into something very fast, but it’s a startup worth keeping your eye on if you want to be the coolest kid on the block, or if you’ve got drone racing aspirations.
