It’s raining drones in China. They fell from the sky during a botched show in Zhengzhou.

Why does this make me chuckle?

So if the drones are ~12inches in length do they need a 840ft setback?

It looks like they have regressed to a default landing mode with a controlled rate of decent - Yes over public, those blades are little ginsu knives hunting for victims (Something more heavily regulated in the US by the FAA since April).

The energetic materials in a drone allow it to travel much farther than a star from a 12" shell.


But seriously drone shows can be cool but the idea of them as a current fireworks replacement is just silly.

The distance comment was just a joke.

For me, drones are cool in what they can do from a technological standpoint, but so far as entertainment it is about as exciting ad starring at a changing billboard.

I fear more and more cities will opt for "drone shows' in place of fireworks.
