Tesla Model S Plaid vs Camera Drone Drag Race
Capturing aerial footage of an F1 race requires a special kind of drone, one that can achieve speeds in excess of 200mph. One of these drones was pit against a Tesla Model S Plaid in an unusual drag race by CarWow’s Mat Watson.



We know the Tesla Model S Plaid boasts a tri-motor setup making 1,006 hp and 1,050 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to hit 60 mph in 1.99 seconds, but what about the drone? Well, the camera drone weighs in at just 2.2-pounds and has a whopping 5 hp, but is most certainly quick enough to hang with most cars.

Combo offers two additional Intelligent Flight Batteries (three in total) for up to 93 minutes of total flight time*. Explore and create more.

And then we come to the drone. Whereas the Tesla comes in at 2,200kg, the drone weighs just 985 grams! It may only have 8hp, but when itโ€™s that light, thereโ€™s no doubt this drone will absolutely fly down the straight!,” said CarWow.
