As the leader of Imperium X DRAGON X guards the Narrows, a the tight planetary section of the galaxy that leads to Imperium X's command center. If you can't go around him go through him!
IDOM sits at the top of the Air Stairs. His job is to keep you from reaching the sky summit by swirling the clouds. Round and round you go.
The GATE KEEPER controls the Exodus from the Emperium's command central. The portal morphs in size so timing is everything.
The TOLL TAKER is the blacksheep of Imperium X. With no loyalty to anyone, he will let you pass though the Skyway portal maze but at a cost of all your energy. Sorry buddy, no spare change.
The Federation recently detected the Imperium X's secret 4th dimension Time Warp portal overseen by Willow. Adapt the flight path or get swatted like flies.
The Federation Warriors have a trick up their sleeve that Imperium X doesn't know about. Hyperspace catapults the drones through the time / space continuum. You need more power? You got it!
Monitoring the battlefield is a busy job. Who's in the lead? How fast? Any frequency malfunctions? Watch from the pilots view as our Flight Ops broadcast takes you inside the world of Drone Clans Wars.
The Federation treats Warriors like rock stars. The well defined Bays make it easy to spectate. The Flight Ops broadcast marries the virtual and real world together.
The Drone Clan Wars take a heavy toll on the Federations aircraft. Watch the Warriors work fevorishly as they do repairs for the next battle.

2017 MADISON MAKERS FAIRE @ Madison WI
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.
