North Richland Hills’ Sky Elements Drones breaks two Guinness World Records with a spectacular holiday drone show featuring over 1,000 drones, according to a Dallas Observer article which says,
“The glow of holiday lights could be seen from the skies Sunday night as over 1,000 drones flew above North Richland Hills at Sky Elements Drones’ latest holiday show. The already three-time Guinness World Records-winning drone show company added two more notches to its championship belt as it successfully attempted two more record-breaking feats with a series of merry multi-propellers.
North Texas-based Sky Elements set the new record for the “Largest fictional character made with multi-rotors or drones” with an aerial nutcracker using more than 400 drones. The company also reset the record for the “Largest aerial image made with multi-rotors or drones” with a Christmas tree scene with more than 1,000 drones. Each record was set at 1,499 drones.”
Drones, adorned in red, white, and blue, crafted a Nutcracker and Christmas tree image, setting Guinness World Records for aerial artistry, according to a Guinness World Records article. They say,
“Drones lit up the sky with red, white and blue colours arranged to create the image of a Nutcracker standing proud and tall on top of a plinth.
The image spun around to give everyone in attendance a good look at it from every angle.
The same number of drones formed the image of a Christmas tree in front of a window with snow falling outside to set a new record title for the largest aerial image formed by multirotors/drones.”
The free event, with limited tickets, sold out swiftly. Attendees enjoyed the drone show from cars, tuning in to music. Additionally, a toy collection benefited the Community Enrichment Center.
