At the end of last year, engineer Ryan Lademann set a new record for the fastest ground speed by a battery-powered remote-controlled (RC) quadcopter, clocking 224.00 mph (360.503 km/h) under supervision of a Guiness World Records officiator.

The actual drone is surprisingly small and has an interesting ‘x’ design that combines a traditional quadcopter and a mini rocket.
