The FAA might not be too happy with this event and neither might the makers of the X6 enjoy their platforms being used in promotional material. Looks from where I sit that Zilker Park lies underneath controlled airspace surrounding Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (KAUS) There might be an arrangement allowing normal hobby RC aircraft to fly in the park, but of course UA fall outside of that remit.

49 quadrocopter in outdoor-formation-flight / Ars Electronica Futurelab / Linz, Austria

The highlight of this year’s Voestalpine Klangwolke Festival in Linz, Austria, was a choreographed air show with 49 quadcopters equipped with LEDs. Ars Electronica Futurelab and Ascending Technologies GmbH set a world record with the largest swarm of these “quadrocopters” outdoors at the same time.


The highlight of the show was a magically lit swarm of computer-controlled helicopters that symbolized the virtual network and digital communities of our time, and that paraded the opportunities and possibilities associated with these impressively before our eyes. (...)


49 AscTec Hummingbird quadrocopters were used for the world premiere. This aircraft has already proven itself in many task areas. “The AscTec Hummingbirds have outstanding flight attitude and position control, which was an important prerequisite simply because of safety concerns with a performance with thousands of spectators in the middle of the city,” said Daniel Gurdan, one of the four founders of Ascending Technologies.
