Red Bull has debuted the world’s fastest filming drone, a feat the company said took DIY engineering to the next level in collaboration with Dutch Drone Gods.

With top speeds of up to 217 mph, the drone was able to keep up with Formula One driver Max Verstappen for an entire lap, marking the first successful camera drone flight at that speed and duration, all while capturing high-definition video. 


From concept to lift-off, the entire project took about a year to create the drone that can accelerate two times faster than an F1 car can reach 186 mph in four seconds and has a top speed of 217 mph.

Watch it follow Verstappen’s brand-new Oracle Red Bull Racing RB20 for a full lap around the Silverstone Circuit:
