What happens if it rains? Can you fly drones in the rain?

Yes, our drones can fly in all types of weather conditions. We fly in light to medium rain storms and cold and hot weather conditions and wind up to 35 miles per hour. 

How high can the drones fly?

The answer differs by country and depends on the regulation set by the aviation authorities. In the US, the height is 400 feet above ground level. If it is necessary to fly higher to optimize viewing for the audience or to avoid obstruction, we can look into applying for some waivers or exceptions. We have flow up to 1,000 feet, or just over 300 meters.

How safe is a drone light show, what happens if a drone flies away?

Our drones are very safe. If a drone has an issue it will either land in place, or go to a predetermined home point, or our safety pilots can manually take control of a single drone or multiple drones manually as well.

    I have never done a drone show, what can I expect?

    We know it probably is your first time with drones and we want to make it simple, creative and fun for you to work with us.

     

    Drone light shows are created by creating a storyboard

    When we work with clients on a drone light show, we create storyboards to showcase the flow of the drone light show. Our team usually starts with a music sound track and then through creative meetings our artists create detailed storyboard frames showing the flow of the drone light show

    Our drone light shows can create many shapes like faces in the sky

    We then create a sample video that combines the music and storyboard frames into a sample of your specific custom drone light show. In working this way, you and your team or your own clients can have as much creative control prior to the actual programming of the drone light show itself.

    Once the music, and art work is done, our programmers go into a computer to create the model for your show prior to the programming of the drones themselves. In every step of the way you as a client are able to see and make changes prior to programming the drones themselves.

    How much space is required for a drone light show?

  • The space needed is based on the number of drones desired for the drone light show. At a minimum, the site space will be about 25m x 45m with secured fencing around the launch area. The minimum airspace required is 340m x 300m, which includes a double geo-fence and exclusion zones for safety.
  • We can use multiple launch locations if you do not have that much space free so we can utilize your space well.
  • Where did you launch from?

  • It depends on the size of your show - less drones = less space
     
  • We may launch on property or can launch off property we can be up to 2 miles away from show area
  • We may use the roof racks of our transport truck
  • Depends on the amount of drones you have
  • We also may launch in staggered fashion if space is tight, where we simply launch 20-30 drones at a time and then do the show once all the drones are up and flying.
  • How long do you need in order to create the performance program prior to the event?

    • We prefer to have 8 weeks of prep for your show for a custom show
    • We can do a stock show in 2-4 weeks

     Sample Reverse Timeline of your event 

    ( this is a general idea, some shows are made faster and some shows are longer depending on the show type, location, etc )
