Teenager develops world’s fastest consumer drone
The world’s fastest drone is just around the corner, and no it’s not a DJI drone. 18-year-old George Matus, who has always been fascinated by flying things is one step closer to releasing his production version of an intelligent drone. He has launched Teal, a drone for beginners which is claimed to be smarter than any drone currently available in the market. And it is twice as fast as the DJI Phantom 4 drone. Teal has a top speed of 85 mph, and it can be deemed as the sportscar of drone world. Just like any other drone, it has standard functions like barrel-rolling, flipping, camera stabilization and recording in 4K quality.

Matus says the drone will have a 2-mile range paired to a high-accuracy GPS range and flight time of 20 minutes which makes it comparable to other commercial flying machines. It is completely waterproof and can take on winds of 40 mile per hour. The intelligent drone keeps learning on the go thanks to its Nvidia Tegra TX1 and software platform for third-party developers to explore.
Keeping in mind the future of drones, Teal will also come with the option to add extra modules like radar-guidance avoidance system, thermal imaging and vision-based positioning. For those who’ll place orders before 15 August will get the high-endurance battery pack. You can expect the Teal drone to ship by holidays this year, and for a price tag of $1,399 it is not a bad deal.
