DRONE RACING MCLAREN….Because we can!

To help promote the upcoming World Drone Prix in Dubai next week, the organizers enlisted the help of the local police, who have a McLaren 650s in their garage, to go head-to-head against a high-speed racing drone. It doesn’t matter who won the race, though, because the Tron-like footage is just wonderful.

But could a drone actually best the McLaren 650s which boasts a top speed of 207 miles per hour? Not when it comes to flat out speed. The fastest racing drones have been clocked hitting a top speed of around 98 miles per hour, which is unthinkably fast for a tiny flying toy but barely half the top speed of the McLaren.

When it comes to agility and maneuverability, however, including flying up the side of the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, the McLaren has officially met its match here. Not to mention buying a drone is a little gentler on your savings account.
