7 fun facts about the drones in the new drone light show at Disney World

Disney is collaborating with Intel to create a new kind of entertainment at Disney World.

The nighttime light show features new Intel Shooting Star drones as part of a holiday show called “Starbright Holidays." In coordination with music, the drones will light up with a flying Christmas tree and a dove.
Here are seven fun facts about the drones:

1. This is the first time a drone show of this scale has been performed in the United States.

2. The drone features built-in LED lights that can create over 4 billion color combinations in the sky.

3. The  drones can fly for up to 20 minutes.
4. The show will feature 300 drones in each performance.

5. The I drone is splash-proof and can fly in light rain.

6. The drone weighs only 280 grams (0.617 pounds) – less than the weight of a volleyball.

7. All 300 drones can be controlled by one computer and one drone pilot. However, there is  always a second pilot on hand as backup.
