Airspeeder EXA Series First eVTOL Drag Race MK3 Flying Car
Airspeeder has successfully completed its first EXA Series pre-season test race using two Alauda Aeronautics Mk3 Speeders that were remotely controlled. These flying cars were pitted against each other down a 300m drag strip where two teams – Team Alpha and Team Bravo – composed of Alauda engineers as well as official remote test pilots made sure the race was a success in South Australia.

The company hopes to ring in the arrival of new advanced air mobility (AAM) technologies where safe air racing is ensured through latest LiDAR and radar technologies. These two combine to create virtual force fields around the sport’s quadcopter-style flying cars. Production aircraft will be manned and require pilots to navigate rapidly through hair-pin turns, which is only possible with a multicopter layout.

  • Upgraded Wind Resistance - DJI Mini SE can resist 29-38kph winds and take off at a max altitude of 4,000 meters, so your footage is stable even when flying along a windy coastline or high above an alpine forest.

Just as Formula One has driven innovation for the cars we use today, Airspeeder’s vision for the world’s first electric flying car racing series has the potential to transform the way we move around cities. Cutting-edge racing requires cutting-edge capability which we’ve delivered through Telstra Purple’s extensive expertise, technical capabilities and our strategic collaboration agreement with AWS, combined with Australia’s most advanced 5G,” said Christopher Smith, Head of Telstra Purple.
