Drone maker xCraft is launching their fastest quadcopter on Kickstarter. In fact, they claim the X PlusOne is the fastest drone out there, period. The X PlusOne hovers like any other quadcopter, but is also designed to transition to forward flight. This allows the X PlusOne to reach speeds of 60 mph. It’ll also give you 15 minutes of flying time on a single charge. The X PlusOne has an optional 2-axis gimbal for a GoPro camera as well as fixed mounts for the GoPro and Micro DV cameras.
The X PlusOne is $199 for a DYI kit, or $479 for ready-to-fly, on Kickstarter.
