MAKE visited the folks at Game of Drones in sunny American Canyon two Sundays ago to see the latest in DIY battle drones. We saw a man running from hellfire of paintballs rained down from above. We found a group discussing lasers and wooden battle props. We saw copters crashing in the sky. “Hey, I want to strap on a Go Pro and crash into you.” This isn’t your everyday fly-in. Here are a few of our favorite scenes.
And here are some moving photographical images to really help you feel the energy of the day.
First, two quadcopters battling for dominance of the sky.
Also, one man with a paintball gun cowering helplessly as a hexcopter pelts paint-filled projectiles at his person.
Finally, here’s some sweet FPV footage from one of the pilots at the event.
