First Manned Aerobatic RACING Drone - Will it FLIP?

First Manned Aerobatic RACING Drone - Will it FLIP?
I'm pushing the limits to see what this can do Mirko is gonna be flying over water so like if something goes down it's gonna be a big big problem all right so where are we Josh we are in Germany yeah at the Zeppelin hangar yeah the legit Epling hangar we're out here with our friends from the

drone

Champions League and specifically right now we're about to go inside and we're gonna check out what

will

eventually become their man to

racing

drum they do

drone

racing

now but
first manned aerobatic racing drone   will it flip
eventually their long term goal is to have

manned

drone

racing

a

drone

that carries a man so DCL has a nameís yet but if you have a cool idea for a name leave it in the comments below the most of time we see these man groans and they're not flying they're just concepts this is a real McCoy this is capable applying a person we actually got the monocoque of the Formula One team or the Toro Rosso okay we basically built all the chassis around it that's how the canopy evolved from 2019
this is all then carbon fiber and of the battery compartment in the front with a real firewall also and he was saying you run 24 batteries I ran 24 batteries that's ridiculous 2014's better yeah what brought is like this idea to you like how only been three minutes four years ago it was always the plan you know that to have an entry point for everybody with with a game yeah use a simulation yeah where basically everybody can you know learn how it works and also have fun and then take the
step you know

first

with the small

drone

s and then maybe one day you can be the pilot of such a big drop so friends this is this is not typical to what you probably see most of the time here and what we really love DCL they really want everyone based on passion and talent to be able to get a foothold in this hobby that's starting with and getting the

first

exposure through your video game which is amazing we've gotten to play it and then from that point they get to go on and move to race
quads and then they can even dream bigger and do bigger as I love to say and go into me in flight which I honestly if you would have told me a year ago this was even possible I see I see substantial I'm on the internet but nothing like this yeah I feel like I'm a little tiny person right now this is just like mind-blowing we're gonna let these guys get to work they're gonna get this thing set up and we are actually gonna fly here and it's hilarious because they have this
container office thing right here and that's where we're gonna be for the

first

couple flights to make sure that it doesn't malfunction it is a steel container which is good my opinion because I don't know man this thing doesn't even have the props on yet and it's already intimidating alright so right now they are knocking off to these safety guards here and once I'll be right fired up and bite relieve the door open this room can you get long disabilities we have
Mirko out of one window and they said the safety crew got the video that I love you and then if you look through the window there it is good everybody ready when do I start Wow and three two Oh Patrick yeah this is reality of pretty much every other small bar absolutely awesome let's see how it looks let's see oh beautiful so to think about this when you lifted that off and you actually caught that it's going one directly and you kill that most people would react even harder in the
interaction and you put it down before absolutely that's what I always practice the for saving money copters because I was paying them at the beginning so I practice a lot on the simulator by for example going up with adopting the simulator closing my eyes move them around random and then open the eyes and try to recover as fast as I can and turn it off so practicing this procedure which I recommend to everybody then you can get faster and faster to recover

drone

s and to save a lot of money
as well you saved it okay so that was insane intense I have never heard anything like that and then you compound it with this crazy facility we're in and it was just like this resonating it just vibrated you're so we're in the container and you could still feel it in your chest yeah but they're assessing it right now they're gonna get it tuned and we're gonna try it again they don't need to leave now all right yeah was a stressful day but we found the mistake after
first manned aerobatic racing drone   will it flip
three mistakes yet the trim was free the trim was a bit out o for the yo and repeat the oliviers well we switched two motors two cables of the ESC and the singer wise I think we got crazy don't it than that but nothing broke luckily only the spinners pro so you guys know that we're always building these huge crazy projects and maybe some of them are somewhat comparable and scale to this but they're not comparable in power so for example like for a while that we were using our t motor
motors P 80s we did it on the giant mini quad we did it on a little tank our tank a lot of them and they were they were great they were really powerful but the big difference between those and the type of electronics that they're using on this is these are high-energy motors so the props that we used on some of our big projects are basically like big air paddles they're made for super efficient flight times and good power but not super high energy these are like speed these are like the
opposite these are super high speed high performance electronics and you can tell when that thing is fly I'm just seeing it and hearing it in person you can just sense the power by this sound that it's making it's pretty crazy you can get a motor to give you lots of thrust but you're not gonna get thrust and speed these specifically are designed for thrust and speed so just like a little mini quad has a deep pitch you know for the high energy these have some more props to them
yeah so it's pretty cool working with the DCL team there's so many parallels to being back home of the shop it's a really cool team to be around seeing them all firing on all cylinders looks like they're starting to disassemble so now from what I understand we are going on a road trip across Europe to Croatia where they have the capability of actually flying this thing outdoors according to Herbert and Mirko they're gonna be pushing this thing they already know that they can
make a person flying this is my size they want to do they want to say the

first

man to

aerobatic

drone

design this thing to literally like do what a mini quad could do you have with a person in it we are here we're in Croatia we've been on this crazy road trip we're all little jet lag still now there's a really big reason while we're here and not in Germany flying outside

first

of all it's not legal to do so if you drove all the way to Croatia eight hours away yep just so
they could actually get the permissions and the clearance to be able to fly this outside and really see what it can do it's amazing little Airport right on the edge of the water I think you go at the end of the runway there's a drop-off to the beautiful water and honestly it feels like we're back home in America at a little sleepy Airport the airplanes are a little bit different here in Europe but other than that it feels right at home so now currently if you guys aren't familiar
with DC l DC l is

drone

Champions League and it is a

racing

league that you can get into and the way you do that is through their

racing

simulator or their game now they have a couple of their

racing

drums that they currently are using in the league right now and it's really cool it's very similar to what we use on the show to chase our planes very high-performance little mini quad race

drone

oftentimes getting in the

drone

race is a very difficult thing and this also costs a lot of
money to do so it's a really cool thing about the game it kind of follows our vision of trying to take down those barriers people can practice they can learn and they can also have fun with friends and family but when they get better and better as a pilot they can also rank and it's not based on a person's you know celebrity status that gets them into these races is their passion and we loved that we had a chance to play the GCL game and it is by far my favorite fvv head it's
first manned aerobatic racing drone   will it flip
very not only very realistic with the physics but it's extremely well optimized and the thing I love about this the most is that you can play it on my gaming PC but you can also play it on your ps4 or your xbox so not only is that cool because that would be s for but also it's going to open up the world of the are awesome hobby to so many people out there who have their concepts in the DCL game there's all kinds of flight test skin just check them out for the

first

time if you guys
like the flying toilet the tank the pig the flying shoe yeah these guys hook this up and all those skins are there and also different variants which are really really cool so that leaves us with today and they're going to be doing the

first

I believe outdoor test but not just outdoor

first

outdoor full acro aggressive

aerobatic

flying now we saw what Mirko is able doing the small clothes in space with us how much energy he can build up he's really gonna be pushing to the limit to see
what they can do with this we're here with Herbert here we're about what 10 minutes out from the flight 10 minutes yet 10 minutes you're the leader of the team here and this has been a long time coming for you guys right absolutely and now only 10 minutes to go today's the day yeah alright so the quad is hot it's fired up the beeps get excited yeah how you feeling let's do it all right good all right I'm ready to take off and I'll get there all right good luck
guys good luck getting crazy I could see it fight me and was like food once I think

will

spinning in the other anyway yeah it's one of the tricky things with making airplane videos or aviation videos is that the wind other than a little bit of noise in the microphone it never really translates on the video so you can't really tell but no not only is it a little bit windy but it's specifically gusty it's gusting to like 16 mile an hour or something like that 4 kilometer an hour I
don't even know how much it is but it was doing good and then when they got the speed it would kind of spin out in the y'all a little bit so what are your thoughts what do you think is that is going on here it's kind of funny kids with multirotors in stuff pitch and Bank are directly controlled through power so motors pull up and thrust directly moves them back and forth but yaw is different Yas is actually using the torque from the motor so if you have mightier props you get a lot
more torque effect which means you get a lot more yaw flatter pitches the universe these are by tier but you know they got to spool up really high and as those pull up others just pulling down you're really working the whole system differently you're in balancing with your quads and stuff so I think ultimately them with the Millennium Falcon taught us as you need to use Piper you're hyper yoneyama really - yeah but I think doing any Engel booms are gonna be like a rework a lot of the
tuning for this job suggested Mirko and he said that would probably be the easiest thing I think they try that when you came out here did you think that you'd be wrenching on this thing no it's an honor like seriously it's it's not just like like we make crazy contraptions I gotta fly one time yeah like this is probably more than my house and I get the Turner screw on it yeah go but also is really just incredible how eager they are to take ideas and just how fun they are to work
with that oh that's great today is a following morning after mierqis amazing flight the yaw seems to be fixed now we're at this point we're gonna push the limits to see what this can do and by the way if you guys wonder what it looks like when the dummies not in here in an actual awesome human that's what it was like okay so we're at the end of the runway right here right on the numbers and over here there is what he coffee org cured there's the fiord there's
there's basically a drop-off and there's beautiful water opening out into the ocean and and that's where he's gonna be flying to be

racing

up and down the runway push the limits going over the water amazing really really cool so yeah we got some beautiful Croatian countryside that you guys are about to see and also Mirko is gonna be flying over water so like if something goes something goes down it's gonna be a big big problem all right so Mirko real quick yeah what's
your flight plan what are you about the attempts basically my flat ban now is take off from there which is in the in the runway pretty far away pretty far away exactly so I hope I can see an every centimeter of the

drone

movement yeah afterwards we want to take off I would fly in this direction towards this villain towards the seeds festival festival a go over the trees and then we have different cameras and the goal is to fly basically over the sea and make a shoot about a nice turn with a lot
of angle and if possible maybe a back with and a roll or Julia maybe that rag foot over the sea yeah so let's see how it goes everybody ready yeah ready for takeoff guys know right deep I

will

be this yes perfect dude now what role Oh and obviously we just saw history you know another chapter of what this technology can do but also it's caused me they're like I want to I want to change my life goals here a little bit so I can someday fly one of these things yeah and you
guys can too yeah here's the best part is the giant

drone

is awesome it's huge it's inspirational but you can fly too with the DCL simulator the game is available now and it's not just on PC you can get it on Xbox you can get on ps4 we'll put links down in the description if you guys want to check that out and make sure you subscribe if you haven't yet and until the next one we'll see you
