Drone Wars is a series of challenges that puts piloting skills, engineering and teamwork to the test. Teams compete against obstacles and each other in a competition that will reveal the best drone pilots and engineers.
Seven teams of two come from all over the world to compete. Their first challenge is designing a drone that guides them through a giant maze.
A challenge of traditional drone racing separates the teams into racers and engineers, all against the backdrop of an abandoned military base.
Teams must equip drones with poles able to grab rings attached to field goal posts. The top two teams compete in a medieval joust tournament for the top spot.
An abandoned building is rigged with motion sensors and teams must sneak through without being seen. A team is eliminated from the competition.
Teams design a drone to find a person lost in the forest… but the person lost is a member of their team. They are timed on successfully escaping the woods.
The six remaining teams split into two groups and play the first ever game of Drone Ball.
A ‘pirate’ ship is stationed in the water with treasure on it. Teams must fly to the ship and retrieve as many coins as possible.
Teams build the strongest drones to carry the most amount of weight for their size. Who goes higher than the tower and who gets eliminated?
Teams are given objects and must make them fly and host a party. A spontaneous drone party commences with a multitude of guests!
Drones go to the highest point and drop a payload on the target below. Points are awarded for highest altitude and closest to target landing.
Teams create drones that can fly, float and drive and race through the air, sea and land. A team is eliminated to reveal the final contenders.
The finalists face-off head to head by equipping their drones with paintball guns and targeting one another. One champion emerges.
