It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's a boat.  

Imagine converting a shipyard into an urban drone mecca.

Crowley's boat yard offered up their place and their heavy machinery so put on one heck of a unique show. Stages build out of piers, 20' gates made from boat stands capable of holding 20 ton ships. All happening in the near south side.    



Let's Light it Up!

Drone Clan Wars visiting the galaxy of Madison for their Makers Faire. Thousands of onlookers witnessed the spectacle of our robotic battlefield.  The 40' x 40' cage meant we had to vertical. But hey, that is what drones are for. All the Emperium X's evil bosses were in full rage mode. 

Plenty of crowd interaction with drone demos and the NERD version of $10,000 pyramid.
