    Attended on Saturday and had a great day capturing some of the action at the show. So much going on that despite arriving at 8am and leaving at 6pm I still didn't catch everything.

    Some very clever technology and programming of these Bebop drones enables them to dance around one another without colliding. Each drone just follows a programmed sequence. No interaction with the other drones or environment. Apparently if the drone senses it is out of position it lands. Great to watch!

    The most unique looking drone at the show and bristling with features that make it one of the most functional and good looking drones on the market. Features one button take off and return to home, optional 'Wii' style gesture based control, pause function, safe user distance, safe max distance, 5km video streaming, long 23 minute flight time, orbit mode, cable cam mode, follow-me mode, HD and 4K stabilised video capture...and the arms and legs pack away for easy transportation.

    The Parrot Team definitley brought the fun factor to the UK Drone Show with their leading edge tech drones and planes. The Swing can easily take-off, transition from hovering to forward flight and back to hover for landing with the gyro system that maintains stability of the plane throughout.

    This is a first! A drone that can actually shoot from its onboard cannon while it is flying. Only small balls and not with any real force but still very fun to try and knock down objects while you fly it line of sight. It also has a grabber accessory that can be used by pilots to try and pick up small light objects. Too cool.

    The guys from BRCA showed us 'drift' style racing at the UK Drone Show. By using plastic, and not rubber tyres, and numerous setup tweaks, these guys are more often travelling sideways than in a straight line. The Yuneec Typhoon H turned up and was trying to take some chase video. Awesome stuff!
