Other Additional Equipment

  • May need 220V power supply from mobile power bank
  • Some of the Power Strips
  • A set of foldable desk and chair (would be very good)

Pre-Flight Preparation

  • Battery preparation
    • Please prepare a sufficient number of batteries(more than the number of drones)
    • Please charge the battery fully(according to the flight time, the voltage is at less 8.2V)
  • Drone preparation
    • Please check the number the drones
    • Please check the airframe of the drones, especially for the propeller guard, propeller and the motor
  • Flight Path preparation
    • Use Vimdrones Designer to design the Flight path, save the .blend file and export the data
    • Usage Warming:
      Do not let the drone collide when design the Flight path. The distance between drones should need more than 2m
      Do not let the drone exceed the speed limit when design the Flight path. Max Vertical Velocity (Up To) is 3m/s, Max Horizontal Velocity (Up To) is 4m/s. It is recommended that the flying speed of the drone is below 2m/s.
      Do not let the drone beyond the fence when design the Flight path

Pre-Flight Setup Procedure

Drone Light Show System Communication:

  • Power the wifi router, connect the wifi router and PoE power supply with a network cable
  • Place the tripod,setup the RTK Base and the antenna, use the Feeder to connect the RTK Base and the antenna
  • Connect the RTK Base to PoE power supply with a network cable (so the wifi router can communicate with the RTK base)
  • Power the RTK Base through the PoE power supply
  • Place the Remote Controller(Backup)

Drone Light Show System Layout:

  • Place and locate drones, the distance between each drone no less than 2 m
  • Insert the batteries to the drones, but not power the drones

Usage Warning:

  • Do not have the show near people too close or over people’ head
  • Should have the show in an open space without high obstacles
  • Should make sure of good order inside the venue without any interference or disruption when having the show
