Strolling in the park, you must have come across bumblebees sucking nectar from the flowers in the surroundings. You must also remember the buzz created by a swarm of bumblebees as they actively pursue all those who come in their way or try to cause harm to their hive. Having said that, the buzz created by thousands of Ehang Ghostdrone 2.0s swarming the night time sky on the eve of the Chinese New Year is worth mentioning here. Similar to a lantern festival, the new world record was created for a single pilot drone flight in China.
You must have fresh in your memories the drone presentation by Intel on the Superbowl this year as well. Lady Gaga performed her antics as 300 shooting star quadcopters soared over her head.
I am familiar with the Ehang with regard to 184, which is a compact sized portable drone designed for personal use. The Ehang Ghostdrone 2.0 is a machine that I need to get more acquainted with. Now, after this record has been created and all the past records shattered, I presume it won’t be difficult for me to get a hang of it.
Till now, huge formations of drones have been a rather rare event. The main hurdle in this regard has been the FAA rule that allows one drone for one pilot. So, if you want to have a swarm of drones, then you will be required to acquire a certificate from the designated authority.
Since the last autumn season, Intel held the world record with 500 Shoot Star drones appearing in the sky at once. Most of you, though, would only be familiar with the 300 drones that were present on the Super Bowl 51 and entertained people with their interesting tricks and stunts.
Ehang shattered the record in January as they lit the sky with LED-lit drones forming shapes and words. Since, this year has been designated as the year of the Rooster in the Chinese calendar, so the most prominent shapes formed included a rooster and the map of China.
Ehang are new entrants in the world of consumer drones. Being offered as a compatible alternative to the DJI Phantom series, the Ghostdrone 2.0 is a realistically priced machine.
We look forward to carrying out more research on the Ehang Ghostdrone 2.0 in the days to come. Dont forget to watch the 184 to appear in Dubai later this year. You can get your hands on the base variation of the Ghostdrone 2.0 starting from 200$ from the list below.
