Add pyrotechnic in drone light shows with FWsim

Drone light show and fireworks

These few years, traditional fireworks displays are coming under increasing examination due to environmental and safety concerns, light shows are emerging as a new, revolutionary alternative for the years coming.

However, drones and fireworks can coexist thanks to technological advances, which are redefining public celebrations, and generating fascinating experiences that combine the best of both worlds.

Are drone shows cheaper than fireworks ?

If you want to make a cost comparison between a light shows and a pyrotechnic demonstration with fireworks, there are several factors to consider.

First of all, the initial investment for a drone show can be higher due to the cost of the drones, software, logistics and more generally equipment required such as case transportation, embedded computer, and the support before and after the show.

On the other hand, drones can be reused for several shows, reducing costs in the long term, unlike fireworks shows, which known as one-off occasions, with materials consumed during the event and therefore not reusable.

Another factor to consider is the show's complexity and scale.

Whether it is the scale of the fleet deployed or the number of pyrotechnic devices planned, this is a determining factor in the event's budget. It all depends on whether it is a small or large event.

Are drone shows replacing fireworks ?

Drone light shows are gaining in popularity in the world of entertainment and celebrations, offering an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional fireworks shows.

In this way, more and more organizations, location and cities are banning the use of pyrotechnics, suggesting that the use of drones could eventually replace fireworks.

However, those who choose to maintain the pyrotechnic tradition can also incorporate great drone displays into their shows.

Indeed, the combination of illuminated drones and pyrotechnics in the same show creates an even more spectacular and immersive visual experience.

To facilitate this integration, specific tools exist, enabling these two practices to be combined harmoniously and efficiently.

What is FWsim ?

FWsim is one of the major technological breakthroughs that allow drones and fireworks shows to coexist.

Thanks to this great software, it is now possible to combine these two visual art forms to produce even more impressive and captivating shows.
