The UVify Draco takes you out of the casual approach of flying drones and into the fast paced arena of drone racing. This drone is going to take you to a whole new level. While most UAVs are programmed to take pictures and make flying easy, speed and agility are not the main focus. This one lets you get up to speed with the pros, and can be quite exhilarating.
What is the UVify Draco?
The UVify Draco is a racing drone that is ready-to-go. The company designed the UVify from the ground up and as a bonus, it even looks smart – there are no wires or batteries exposed. It’s ready to go right out of the box.
This UVify Draco quadcopter is capable of hitting a top speed of 100 miles per hour. If you’re familiar with those mainstream photography drones currently on the market, you probably realize that this blows many of them right out of the water in regards to air speed.
The Draco has a modular design to it, so you can easily swap parts out in order to upgrade. This is a major benefit because if a collision happens, your drone didn’t go completely down the drain. So, if you ding your drone while you’re outside flying, you’re not going to pick up a solder iron or anything like that – the parts are easy to replace. If you break a motor or an arm, you can clip a new one back in place and you will be good to fly again.
When Draco is released, the cost is going to be around $499 (that is an estimate) and that does not include a transmitter/controller. The new motor arms would be around $30, which isn’t all that bad. No, the drone isn’t exactly cheap, but on the same note, it’s not that big of a sum either. With the carbon-fiber frame, you can rest with the satisfaction of knowing that the drone is built pretty solid, so breakages probably won’t be too common, as long as you use some common sense when you’re up in the sky. The Battery Life
Unfortunately, the battery life with the drone is a bit of a downfall, but when something has this much power, that is expected. The battery will only last ten minutes on one charge and if you’re operating at top speeds, that number is going to drop down to two.
Thankfully though, you can swamp the battery out, so this is going to increase your time if you carry a second battery with you.
The Release Date for UVify Draco
Draco isn’t going to be available until next summer 2017, but if you’re interested in this drone, you can pre-order it as soon as today. There are a total of two models to choose from – you have the Draco and the Draco HD, with the latter having a better camera and real-time HD video streaming. We think it’s well worth the added cost to include the feature.
If you’re in the market for a new drone and you want one that will get your adrenaline flowing, then the UVify Draco would be an excellent UAV to take a look at. Being able to reach speeds of 100 MPH is sure to provide that adrenaline rush!
