Welcome to some weekend fun and entertainment with drones. We spend a lot of time scouring the web for news, information and more on all the great drones around the globe. In our travels, we encounter some fun and funny stuff, and we want to start sharing that with you. Today we will be taking a look at some drones that emulate fireworks.
No matter what the title says, we refer to this as our Good Idea / Bad Idea series, we just figured a new name was in order, suggestions welcome. Let it be known that we do not endorse or recommend anything we will post here, sort of a “do not try this at home” vibe, but somebody tried it, it was interesting or funny and here it is.
Next up in our series, let’s explore some fun with drones replacing explosions in the skies.
Before we begin, let’s get a few things out of the way:
Drone legal and safety
Intel is the current leader in ‘firework drones’ with multiple World Records broken during each show. This video shows 500 Shooting Star drones performing choreographed moves to create objects, logos and anything else you can think of.
This video comes from Going viral showcasing 1000 drones creating a magnificent light show for the Chinese Lantern Festival. This performance received a Guinness World Record as for most drones flown at once. The benefits of drones as fireworks includes much lower operating costs, safer and better locations.
Good idea / bad idea wrap up
As always, we officially recommend you do not try this at home. We want you to always fly safe, to obey all drone laws, but also to have some fun. Of course, if you do try this, please share the details, it’s always fun to see some shenanigans.
If you think this entire series is a bad idea, let us know in the comments below. Otherwise, enjoy the crazy antics caught on film.
