Nimbus. No, it's not about Harry Potter's racing broom, but it does have a lot to do with racing in the air.

Looking at the existing prototype, Nimbus 195 is a full carbon fiber monocoque exoskeleton racing drone, powered by powerful 2206 2300 kV motors, with all electronic components, camera, and battery placed in an enforced body that protects them from environmental influences – such as from water drops and splashes getting inside the body.

It was developed by Aerodyne-RC, which was established by a small group of engineers, passionate about drones, FPV and drone racing development, so we're pretty sure they mean serious business when they say they created something powerful, durable and extra strong. It is actually strong enough to survive potential crashes and collisions of all sorts, all while being super lightweight (with varying the thickness of the carbon fiber over the body to optimize strength-to-weight ratio). 

There are still 12 days left before the crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo ends, so you can still get yours pre-ordered, if you fancy flying one. You will pay $750 for the ready to fly package including controller with first deliveries expected in March 2017.
