Fastest (unofficial) 100m Ascent by a Quadcopter: 1.70 seconds00:07

This will not be submitted to Guinness – more of a practice run… more like too rushed!

Boring video AND as expected, the take off does look SLOW. This is due to the high pitch 5260 props – calculations showed that they would take off a little “slower” than a 5″ pitch prop, but the 6″ pitch would end up winning a 100m race.

Set up: 100m fishing line was taped to the quad and zig zagged along the ground and tied to a whiffle ball. The whiffle ball was secured to the ground. Once the quad got to altitude, the video would catch the moment the ball lurches forward.
