Record flight show with drones in China by Hyundai


On March 29, the Korean Hyundai Motor Group lit up the night in Shanghai with the logo of their Genesis luxury automobile. The upper mid-range sedan is now also available in China. Hyundai celebrated the market launch with a drone show, which set a new record for most unmanned aerial vehicles with 3,281 aircraft.

The flight show combined creation myths and science in pictures under the catchphrase “The Genesis of Genesis”. For example, it showed the hand from “The Creation of Adam”, as painted by Michelangelo Buonarroti on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, a graphic representation of the double helix structure of DNA and design elements such as the radiator grille and the silhouettes of the G80 and GV80 car models. The highlights of the show can be seen in a video.

With the show, Hyundai secured an entry in the Guinness Book of Records for the largest number of simultaneously flying unmanned aerial vehicles (The Most Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) Airborne Simultaneously).

The previous record was set by the Shenzhen Damoda company. On September 20th they send 3051 into the air. Although the show used fewer drones, it was no less impressive. As the name suggests, the company is based in the Chinese city of Shenzhen, which connects Hong Kong with the mainland.

Shenzhen Damoda replaced the previous record holder in Russia. Some time before, Intel held the title with 2066 drones. Especially in China and the USA, drone air shows are becoming a popular and effective means of attracting attention.

In such shows, choreography software prevents the drones from colliding when they change formation. Such flight maneuvers with over 3000 unmanned machines show how quickly robotics is developing in this area.
