Earlier this week I went to the Liberty Science Center to attend the Day of Drones, and got to see one of the coolest custom built drones ever. This drone is capable of firing (safe) nurf-like disks as projectiles while flying. Built by designer Andy Shen of Shendrones, Andy demonstrated by knocking over stacks of plastic cups to the audiences enjoyment.
Organized by the Drone User Group of New York and New Jersey, the Day of Drones gave families and friends an opportunity to get up close with this fascinating technology in a STEM friendly environment. The event included a drone racing competition, demonstrations on how FPV headsets and racing drones work, an incredible screening of the Drone Film Festival and finally a “Droneasium” an enclosed space where people could show off their custom built quadcoptors.
Check out the video below for more footage of the event and this awesome custom built drone!
How would you customize your drone?
