The film showcases the filming of the trailer for the world’s first electric flying racing car series
Airspeeder has released a behind-the-scenes film as it gears up to the launch of what it describes as the world’s first electric flying racing car series.
The unmanned race series – called the EXA Series – which is planned for later this year, will see Alauda Mk3 Speeder vehicles race each other in the air for the first time.
The racing multicopters have been developed at Airspeeder’s aerospace engineering hub in Adelaide, South Australia by engineers drawn from elite motorsports, automotive, aviation and FPV drone, electric plane, electric vehicles and passenger drone backgrounds.
The 4K film showcases what these ‘flying cars’ will look like and how they will fly.
The first of the planned flying car Grand Prixs will take place in 2021 at three ‘soon-to-be-revealed’ international locations.
LiDAR and radar technologies create virtual forcefields around the quadcopter format flying cars to stop them crashing into each other.
Airspeeder says that following this inaugural unmanned season, the vehicles will be manned by pilots to race around “electronically governed racetracks in the skies above some of the most visually arresting scenery in the world.”
