Dancing Drones Break Guinness World Record In China

Chinese UAV firm Ehang Egret launched 1,374 drones over the city of Xian in a colorful display of 3D formations. The images made in the sky included a Buddha, a high-speed train, the Dayan Tower, the Silk Road, and even a camel.

The event had symbolic importance as Ehang Egret chose to fly 1,374 drones because the largest and most intact ancient city was 13.74 km long. Additionally, 74 red silks were hoisted in the air to illustrate the common prosperity of 74 countries.

The colorful display lasted 13 minutes at about 853 ft high across the night sky after the drones took off simultaneously from the Xian City Wall. The event broke the Guinness World Record for Most Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) Airborne Simultaneously. The previous record holder was Intel, flying 1,218 drones in formation during the Winter Olympics in South Korea. 

While this display is incredible, it shouldn’t come as a surprise. Ehang Egret first made headlines in 2016 when they unveiled their passenger drone concept. Earlier in 2018, the company said the testing period was complete and that the vehicle would be capable of carrying one person at speeds of up to 80.7 mph.
