when u want the drone to go faster then u need to concentrate on 3 aspects . 1. it is the weight of the drone itself - u need to have a robust and light weight framework and 2. rpm of the rotors should be very high . 3. the propellers used should not cover a wide range of rotation means they shod be optimal size and high speed application ones .

i think it’s depends on design of the element and alleviation of motor which moves the drone.

Quadcopter drones rely a lot on the quick response of the four motors, continuously making small precise adjustments to keep the platform in balance. It would be quite hard to make a small turbine engine that has the same level of responsiveness.

However, there’s a huge problem of endurance. Batteries still have a low energy density per unit weight. Maybe it could be feasible to run a single onboard turbine to generate electricity and drive the propellers as usual.

hey I have an idea which may work for you i.e. normally we slow down the speed of front motor and make the rear motor to run faster in order to move drone forward here we will a small change instead of slowing the speed of front one we gonna speed up rest of three motors while keeping front motor constant this configuration will work the same way as former but now all the motors are helping drone move faster
