Fastest commercial production drone flies at 70 mph, teraflop processor for automated flight and will cost $1300

Flying at speeds over 70 mph, Teal is the world’s fastest production drone. It also flips, rolls, and dives as fast as your gut lets you, while staying stable in winds up to 40 mph.

Teal is powered by the NVIDIA TX1, a crazy powerful mini supercomputer (teraFLOP processing power). It handles machine learning, autonomous flight, image recognition, and much more with ease, onboard the drone itself. This makes Teal a flying supercomputer. You can even plug Teal into a monitor, use it like a normal computer, play games on it, and go fly when you want.

Teal does not have standard obstacle avoidance built in. However, they are working on sense and avoid capability that functions directly through the camera that’s already integrated in Teal (via machine learning). They will offer that as a future update. We are also working on upgrade add-on modules that provide more obstacle avoidance capabilities.

The GPS system built into our Inertial Navigation System gives GPS/GLONASS capability with fast update rates and high accuracies. It supports standard GPS (+- 1.5m accuracy) while also offering Differential and RTK GPS capability (+- 0.5m, +- 0.05m, respectively), which isn’t available in any other production drone today. This makes Teal the first drone with such high accuracy, stability, and performance. They are working on and expecting to have Differential and RTK ready for when we ship, but may include them as a software update shortly after.

The Teal SDK allows you to build apps that run on Teal, as well as mobile apps to communicate with Teal. they provide full access to the computing power of the TX1, as well as the ability to connect your own hardware through USB ports, so the possibilities are virtually limitless.

What kinds of apps can I make for Teal?
They are envisioning use cases ranging from advanced autonomous flight, thermal imaging integration, search and rescue, and augmented reality.
