Just a teaser from this week's 3DR hackathon: swarming Solos running ROS doing and autonomous lightshows in the skies over Berkeley. You can script the geometries (circles, with moving center points and radius, and any other shapes) and the AI allocates the drones accordingly to populate the shapes and avoid each other. Much more soon!

The best is probably the Intel Shooting Star combo, but you can't buy that. In terms of what you can buy, uGCS seems best for that.

Thanks again,

Why cant I buy that? i thought they released those drones with that purpose. I have a client who wants a drone show, what would you recommend its the best way to do this?

Intel has not released it for sale. They just operate a fleet themselves for promotional purposes.

Drone shows require regulatory approval and a huge amount of preparation.  But there are companies that will put one on for you, like this one.

Ill be sure to contact them, thank you so much! This is in mexico and regulations are a bit easier to work with here! :)
