Airmageddon is a ‘Robot Wars’ type TV show made by the BBC in conjunction with DHX Media in Canada. It features 9 – 14 year old pilots flying drones in a tasks from obstacle courses, to knocking down brick walls with wrecking balls, lifting objects with electro magnets, hitting targets with paint ball guns and more. The show aired for the first time on CBBC at the end of January 2016.

An interesting project as we had to produce six ‘house drones’ (WASP & GUARD featured in this picture), as well as a fleet of bespoke X8s for the competitors to fly. These had to be very tough but also easy to repair as crashes were, to say the least, common!
