World’s Fastest Consumer Drone – Captures 4K Video

George Matus carried his passion for drones from his early childhood at the age of 11 years he started to fly drones and by the age of 16 he was competing as a professional drone racer and started to test new aircraft as a test pilot. At the age of 18 after finishing his high school he decided to start his own company, Teal, which is all set to launch its first consumer drone, which can be easily handled by a beginner using an iPhone and also capture 4K videos. Teal’s first drone gives a strong competition to other brands present in the market as it can perform like a racer car, performing at a speed of 85 miles per hour while performing actions such as diving, flipping as well as performing barrel rolls. The company has launched its preorders and is charging an amount of $ 1299 for each unit.

The ambition of Teal goes beyond just a drone which can perform basic flying modes for beginners and a stabilized camera which is now a standard for almost all consumer drones. The drone is carrying a NVIDIA TX1, it is claimed that it can handle autonomous flight, machine learning as well as image recognition; these are some of the advanced capabilities which are now available on aircraft from Yuneec and DJI. According to Matus “It’s basically a supercomputer inside your drone, you could plug this thing into a monitor and play PC games if you wanted.”teal goes beyond just a drone which can perform basic flying modes for beginners and a stabilized camera which is now a standard for almost all consumer drones.

Matus expects Teal to become a platform which is flooded with third-party applications created by many developers. The company is busy is making its API accessible at the launch and is expected to distribute the unit at maker fairs and hackathons around the nation. The battle is undoubtedly uphill as the developers are compiling their focus on the platforms that have customers while there are other established competitors already present with open APIs like 3D Robotics and DJI.

Teal has built the drone with the utmost optimism and focused towards much tumble and rough fight as compared to the most consumer offerings. The drone is not only capable of flying with the speed of 85 mph but also claims to handle the wind at the speed of 40 miles per hour, also the drone is waterproof and can be flown during rains or snow which no other consumer drone has ever stated. Matus is still living with his parent in Utah and has a magnetic evangelist for his products, which are at present being constructed in the USA.
