The fastest ground speed by a battery-powered remote-controlled (RC) quadcopter is 224.00 mph (360.503 km/h), and was achieved by Ryan Lademann (USA), in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, on 8 November 2022.
Ryan designed and custom built several prototypes using three D printers and hand construction skills for his attempt. He hoped to demonstrate that his skills and desire to learn new stuff would break a Guinness World Records title for speed.
Ryan made his attempt in Arizona, a location for much aviation test flying, due to the predictable weather, ideal desert terrain, great visibility and large unpopulated tracts of land. He met with aerospace and aerodynamic engineers, professional pilots, and quadcopter enthusiasts who assisted with his attempt.
