Designed and built from the ground up, our autonomous drones turn live events into unforgettable experiences.

The Lucie® micro drone

The Lucie micro drone is our flagship offering and delivers vast creative freedom. Each autonomous Lucie micro drone is equipped with a RGBW light. When precisely choreographed, the Lucie micro drones form a cluster of flying lights, and together, their smooth, intricate motions work in harmony to produce captivating results. The versatility of the Lucie micro drones means you can achieve a variety of different effects. Fly only a few for an intimate scene with performers on stage. Or fill the air above the stage with a swarm of glittering fireflies for a more immersive experience.


Weighing only 50g (1.8oz), the Lucie micro drone can perform above artists without any safety concerns. Optimized for permanent installations and touring productions, they are ultra-safe, reliable, and easy to use. 

Technical specifications.

Weight: 50g (1.8oz)
Flight time: up to 3 minutes
Charging time: approximately 1 hour
Equipped with high–intensity, pre-programmable RGBW lights

Indoor positioning system.

The system consists of Kedge™ localization units that reliably define the boundaries of the flight space and allows for maximum creativity. This allows our drones to perform their choreography without cameras, carpets or other limitations. Robust and reliable, it has operated in a wide variety of venues and conditions, including on ice, in a desert and even next to flame throwers.

Lucie® charging station.

To house the Lucie micro drones before their performance, we provide charging station racks. Each rack hosts up to 40 Lucie micro drones and is an all-in-one charging, storage, and transportation solution.

Custom Projects

If you want to create something never seen before, we also work on bespoke, custom projects built to your specifications. From custom design, to engineering projects and processes, we’ll work with you to deliver something spectacular.


Imagine a stage full of floating jellyfish, flying disco balls or swaying flowers. Our drone costume designers can create bespoke costumes that turn our Lucie® micro drones into flying scenery, props and even creatures. These ultra-light, flight-tested costumes can be used alone, or in tandem with a flying light show to add an extra dimension to your event.

Stage Flyer

The Stage Flyer drones were part of a custom project developed for Cirque du Soleil’s Broadway show Paramour. By design they carried lampshades and became dancing props alongside the performers. But this is just one example. The Stage Flyer drones can also carry payloads including cameras, mirrors or other stage effects, such as confetti, for more dramatic possibilities. For dependable safety, each Stage Flyer drone is designed with our failsafe technology. This means it can land safely even if a battery, motor, connector, propeller or sensor fails.


Our Work


Lucie In the Sky – ADC

Lucie In the Sky, a groundbreaking collaboration with Australasian Dance Collective, features six human dancers—and five ‘Lucie’ micro drones from Verity Studios. Seamlessly integrated into the performance, Verity's technology creates a nuanced and emotional connection between humans and drones.

What we did

The collaboration between Verity Studios  and Australasian Dance Collective on Lucie in the Sky is the latest example of the innovative indoor drone-show experiences that have made Verity Studios the top choice for show creators worldwide.
Creative Director Amy Hollingsworth worked closely with our team to create a full-length dance work that combines  human dancers and Lucie micro drones, with each drone demonstrating unique character traits and emotions. The show melded dancers and micro drones to create a work that has coaxed the ‘Pixar effect’ out of anthropomorphic animation and onto the stage. 

Intimacy and connection

The 1-hour show, which opened in Brisbane, Australia, featured 25 minutes of drone choreography. Verity's technology delivered once again, allowing the precise crafting of flight patterns and providing the perfect execution of coordinated flight that allowed the drones to be perfectly choreographed to human movements. The result: a breathtaking display of intimacy and connection between the human and drone characters.

Amy Hollingsworth praised Verity Studios and the company’s Lucie drones."We needed to be able to create the sense of a relationship between the performers, and Verity’s Lucie drones are perfect. Super lightweight, safe and magical." The success of the work relied heavily on the consistency and versatility of the micro drones as well as the magic they created on stage. "It has been a joy to work so closely with Verity's outstanding team of drone choreographers on this project," added Hollingsworth. "The team was incredibly open and collaborative. Verity’s technical team was supportive and gave our production team great confidence in being able to run the system safely and smoothly."

Justin Bieber - Justice World Tour 2022


Justin Bieber - Justice World Tour 2022

Verity’s Lucie microdrones took the stage for Justin Bieber’s 2022 Justice World tour

What we did

Verity's Lucie microdrones were a standout addition to Justin Bieber's Justice World tour, showcasing the capabilities of Verity’s autonomous indoor drone system for live events. The drones were used in a creative and impactful way, adding a new dimension to the concert experience. For the intro to "Where Are Ü Now," with its iconic dance choreography, the drones were used to match the musical build-up into the song to get the audience hyped for Justin's entrance. The creative director for the tour, Nick DeMoura, praised the drones for their reliability and versatility in an interview with Lighting and Sound America (LSA) where he states, "We use them once in a transition. We create a funnel above a toaster lift, and they light up Justin as he lifts onto the stage. It’s a cool transition for getting him on the stage. For the song Ghost, which is one of Justin’s biggest hits, they’re like little spirits, surrounding him throughout the song and creating some really beautiful looks." A total of 88 drones were used to create these stunning effects.

Reliable and seamlessly integrated

The Verity system was seamlessly integrated onto the stage and with numerous movable LED screens, with the drones taking off from stage lifts at the right moment thanks to the integration with TAIT's Navigator. This level of integration, combined with the reliability of the system, allows for the drones to be used in even the most complex productions. In the LSA interview, Nick DeMoura adds, "the drones are super-reliable. The only time they don’t work, it’s because of human error. I would recommend them forever."

Verity's drones provide creatives with new and interesting effects for shows, and the success of Justin Bieber's Justice World tour is a testament to the positive impact they have on the shows. With a proven track record, having provided drones for world tours of Metallica, Drake, and Celine Dion, Verity is the go-to provider for autonomous indoor drone systems for live events.

Cirque Éloize - GCC Games 2022


Cirque Éloize - GCC Games 2022

Created by Cirque Éloize, the Opening Ceremony of the 2022 GCC Games took the crowd—along with live television and social media audiences around the globe—on a thrilling, immersive journey through the history, culture, and the evolution of sports across the Gulf nations.

What we did

To bring the ceremony to life, Verity drones were used during the opening segment to create organic shapes that served as interactive props for the onstage artists representing young soccer players. 176 Lucie micro drones were then used to spotlight swimming, tennis, cycling, and other sports in a dynamic, high-speed number that kicked off the event.  In the breathtaking final act, the drones created a giant, rotating motion around an aerial Cyr wheel acrobat, then gathered to create one final shot that flew straight to a giant, illuminated bullseye, to end the number with a thunderous bang.

Coordinated drones

“A show of this size and complexity came with many challenges,” says Steve Maassen of Verity Studios who was the lead drone choreographer on the project. “Coordinating such a large number of drones as they transitioned from one formation to another in such a fast-paced show required tight integration with lights, projection mapping, PixMob, and other visual effects. There was no room for error.” Maassen adds, “The choreography with the many acrobats was very elaborate. Every acrobatic action—such as the Cyr wheel going up and down or a human pyramid being built—required the highest level of precision to deliver performances that perfectly coordinated acrobats, effects, and 176 flying Lucies.”

 “Verity Studios proved to be the ideal partner to deliver stunning drone effects that added an entirely new element to Cirque Éloize,” says Jean-Philippe La Couture, Vice president production at Cirque Éloize, “The entire team was extremely knowledgeable and professional, ultimately helping us to create a production that exceeded our already high expectations. Thank you, Verity Studios, for helping make the GCC Games Opening Ceremony a wonderful success!”

Céline Dion - Courage World Tour


Céline Dion - Courage World Tour

As Dion raises her arms, 104 Verity drones rise from the stage, dramatically turning blue and thronging around Dion as the song reaches its crescendo.

Canadian singer Céline Dion has had a career spanning decades. Having sold more than 200 million records worldwide, she is the best-selling Canadian artist and one of the best-selling artists of all time.

The 2019-2020 Courage World Tour is Dion’s first tour since beginning her second concert residency in Las Vegas in 2011. Her biggest hit, “My Heart Will Go On,” was always the highlight of the show, augmented by a waterfall that cascades around her as she sings.

For Dion’s new tour, show designer Yves Aucoin who has worked with her for more than 20 years, wanted to find a similarly impressive effect.

To create this effect, Aucoin contacted Verity Studios to use its micro drones to create an impactful, water-themed choreography for the much-awaited encore of Dion’s show, the song “My Heart Will Go On.” As Dion raises her arms, 104 Verity drones rise from the stage, dramatically turning blue and thronging around Dion as the song reaches its crescendo. In the final strains of the song, the drones hover above Céline before descending to the stage one by one. A single drone sinks towards Dion’s outstretched hands before it lifts away as she raises her hands.

The Effectors - Royal Caribbean


The Effectors - Royal Caribbean

Verity Studios Lucie® micro drones embark on a journey on the high seas, aboard Royal Caribbean's "Odyssey of the Seas" and "Spectrum of the Seas".

The Effectors tells the story of four superheroes with the ability to control show effects like lasers, lights, video, and audio. The superheroes unite their powers to fight the villain Crash who, with his Lucie micro drone minions, tries to take over the world.

Verity’s fourth show with Royal Caribbean, the team was faced with the challenge of bringing its drone shows to a new level of immersive entertainment. To achieve this, Verity developed a choreography that flies out over the audience to illuminate the guests with intense red light.

As villain Crash raises his arms, the drone army rises to the sky and circles him before Crash sends them on their campaign to march out over the audience. As he lowers his arms, the drones sink closer and closer to the audience before breaking into a geometric formation.

VP of Entertainment Nick Weir tweeted, “Drones are a big part of the Royal Caribbean Productions drive. We are continuously developing our drone program. Experimenting/testing new, original and dramatic ways to use this technology, and push its boundaries. For us, it is super important that this exciting visual effect contributes to the narratives in our complex productions.”

Starlight Express 2018 - ongoing


Starlight Express 2018 - ongoing

As part of the celebrations for the musical’s 30th year on stage, Starlight Express decided to use 29 Lucie® micro drones in the emotional pinnacle of the show: the Starlight Sequence.

The rock musical Starlight Express tells the story of a child’s toy trains magically coming to life and racing against each other to be crowned the fastest engine in the world. Underdog Rusty ultimately wins the race and the heart of first-class coach Pearl when he is inspired by the legend of the Starlight Express.

As part of the celebrations for the musical’s 30th year on stage, Starlight Express decided to use 29 Lucie® micro drones in the emotional pinnacle of the show: the Starlight Sequence.

Starlight Express press officer Frederika Gerwe said that though she’s seen lots of different types of lighting in shows, the Lucie micro drones were something special. “It was just magical. I’ve never seen something like the drones before. I had goose bumps everywhere.”

“It was quite amazing, because the audience just did not really recognize drones,” said Starlight Express managing director Burkhard Koch. “It was just the magic of the whole scene, which was of course created by the drones flying around.”

In such a quiet and emotional scene, the team at Starlight Express had some concerns about the noise 29 drones could make. However, they quickly realized this would not be an issue. “The most incredible thing was that we expected them to interfere with the sound, but it was not the case at all. It was really nice to integrate them in a musical way,” said Koch.

He was also impressed with the way the creative team, technicians and Verity worked together to create something unique and powerful. “We worked really as a team. We created some completely new things which have never been seen. Getting these classical lighting designs together with this new technology is fantastic,” said Koch.

Drake - Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour


Drake - Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour

Touring with Drake in 2018 and 2019, Verity Studios’ micro drones light up the stage with flying waves and a drone swarm cloud.

Grammy award-winning Canadian artist Drake is one of the best-selling rappers of the 21st century. Performing to audiences of more than 50,000 people, his previous North American tour broke the record for the highest grossing hip-hop tour of all time. This is a first for the Lucie micro drones, debuting with a rap artist on the back of touring with rock band Metallica and Circus Knie. Grammy award-winning Canadian artist Drake is one of the best-selling rappers of the 21st century.
Touring with Drake from July to November 2018, Verity Studios’ micro drones light up the stage with flying waves and a drone swarm cloud. Elevate, a song on Drake’s new album Scorpion, opens with the micro drones swarming onto the stage to surround Drake in a cloud of lights to the roar of the audience. In another guest appearance, the Lucie micro drones create a glittering wave in the song Look Alive.
Touring across 25 venues in North America, the miniature back-up dancers have made a splash on social media and in the press, with featured stories by Rolling Stone, CNET, and Gizmodo.
Rolling Stone noted that artists are focusing more on creating shareable, iconic moments in their shows. “They’ll remember “Drake’s dancing lights” and associate the display with a one-of-a-kind experience at a specific artist’s show. Shows that are able to visually distinguish themselves from the otherwise-homogeneous slew of other concerts are the ones that stick around in people’s minds.”

Guinness World Record - BT UK


Guinness World Record - BT UK

To kick off its new brand campaign, BT (British Telecom) contacted Verity to create a record-breaking drone show based on shapes coded by school children.

In an event starring Jess Glynne and hosted by Tess Daly, drones took off from backstage in the form of hearts, spirals, and butterflies, displaying the shapes the children from St Joseph’s school had coded. Towards the end of the song “I’ll Be There”, the full 160 drones create two intersecting waves before forming a ring around the new BT logo.

“When BT approached us to work with them to achieve this Guinness World Record by flying 160 drones indoors, we weren’t fazed by the tight timeline. This is the first time we’ve collaborated with children and it was a great test for our system to show how flexible it really is. It was a rewarding experience to work on this project, and we are proud to have supported BT in achieving this milestone,” said Verity technical project manager Alex Tintore.

As an integral part of this campaign, BT chose Verity to work on the drone show to ensure it would be a success.

“Verity’s autonomous flying machines have become a standard line item for many high-end productions. Using proprietary technology, Verity’s autonomous drones offer unrivaled safety and reliability within a sophisticated system that can be operated by ordinary client staff. From live events to industrial settings, autonomous indoor drones can fundamentally transform the way we deploy lights, scenography, and sensors in space,” said Verity CEO and Founder Raffaello D’Andrea.

Metallica - WorldWired Tour


Metallica - WorldWired Tour

Metallica is the first tour featuring Verity Studios’ Lucie micro drones, bringing a new dimension to their recent hit “Moth into Flame”

Heavy metal band Metallica has been traveling the world with their WorldWired tour since summer 2017. To kick off the arena tour, they decided to raise the stakes for their song Moth into Flame with a world first. As the music builds, 99 of Verity’s Lucie® micro drones emerge from below the stage to swarm around the band. This is the world’s first autonomous drone swarm performance in a major touring act. The drone show was produced in collaboration with TAIT Towers.  

“After the first night we successfully piloted the drones, James Hetfield walked over to a microphone and announced to the audience how “f—ing cool” the show had been because of Verity’s drones,” said Dan Braun, show director for the band Metallica. “It’s magnificent what they are doing, whether you see it live or on social media. The programmers of the drones do a great job.” 

With Metallica, the drones toured Europe and North America from Summer 2017 until March 2019.

2047 Apologue 3


2047 Apologue 3

The third installment of Zhang Yimou and China Kingway’s concept series, 2047 Apologue, is an exploration of how traditional Chinese performance can be combined with modern technology to impressive effect.

Having previously participated in season 1, Verity was tasked with creating a custom drone ballet for one of the eight performances 2047 Apologue showcased.

“We chose to work with Verity a second time because Verity Studios is a very professional and reliable team. Verity also has the only technology in the world that has drones with minimal noise which is super for stage shows,” said Lulu He, General Production Manager for China Kingway.

Verity worked closely with China Kingway to develop the creative concept; a social commentary on the environmental impact of consumer behavior.
“The plastic bag performance talks about pollution. We have a very serious problem in Beijing, China I believe, but it’s also a world problem. People are producing plastics and wasting them, contributing to environmental problems. This is a very serious issue for everyone in the world,” said He.

Floating, twisting and turning around a large tree installed on the stage, the 66 Lucie micro drones were disguised as plastic bags.  Coordinated with a traditional Chinese performer and dancers on stage, the drones disappeared into the background, the lighting cleverly hiding the black drones and highlighting the stark white of the plastic bags. At the crescendo, a cloud of plastic falls from the skies, cleverly navigated by the flying drones.

“My first thought when I saw the plastic bags flying was that it’s completely different. It has a strong impact, and it doesn’t look like any other prop in a stage show. It looks more meaningful. With more than 50 drones and tailored costumes, it will have a very strong impact and look very special,” said He.

• Year: 2019

• 66 Lucie® micro drones dressed in bespoke plastic bag costumes

• Drones coordinated with dancers, traditional Chinese performer, large tree stage element and falling plastic bags

CCTV New Year's Gala


CCTV New Year's Gala

With an estimated 1 billion viewers across the globe, the show is the most-watched TV program in the world. In 2019, Chinese lantern drones took flight above 50 dancers and famous singers Sun Nan and Jason Zhang.

The CCTV (China Central Television) New Year’s Gala is the world’s most-watched TV program. This event was broadcast live to an estimated 1 billion viewers across the globe. With 88 Lucie® micro drones flying over performers in red Chinese lantern costumes, this is the largest number of costumed drones ever seen in a performance.

Sponsored by TikTok, a leading social media platform in Asia, the show opens to “The Distance of Time”, sung by popular singer Sun Nan and up-and-coming pop star Jason Zhang. As the song builds, 88 Lucie micro drones fly from the back of the stage like butterflies to dance above the 70 performers dressed as blossoming cherry trees.

The Chinese lantern costumes adorning the Lucie micro drones were all designed and produced by the world’s only drone costume designer and Verity employee, Léa Pereyre. Pereyre creates the costume design in CAD software before laser-cutting the materials and assembling the costumes. The drones feature special guards that have pre-defined slots to easily attach costume elements. This concept makes it easy to quickly create large numbers of costumes and transform drones into moving pieces of scenography, props and even characters.

Leading Chinese smart media entertainment company, Keey Media, collaborated with Verity Studios on behalf of the main sponsor TikTok to produce the segment for the 2019 CCTV New Year’s Gala. Wan Li of Keey Media said he was excited to work with Verity to produce this spectacle:
“When the drones floated up from the back of the stage, it was a very special moment. We specialize in live entertainment, but we’ve never seen anything like this before. We see a lot of potential in this technology for entertainment and we’re excited to see what comes next.”

Talisman - The Dubai Mall


Talisman - The Dubai Mall

Verity Studios, the global leader in indoor drone technology, has brought an immersive experience to The Dubai Mall’s 10 Year Celebrations, with a drone show as part of a daily light and sound spectacle.

Talisman is a creation by Lune Rouge Entertainment, the new live entertainment company started by Guy Laliberté, founder of Cirque du Soleil.

Created to celebrate the Dubai Mall’s 10th anniversary, Talisman tells the poetic and inspiring story of a dream come true, from sand to city, from vision to reality.

At show time, an LED-screen tower in the middle of the Star Atrium in the mall came to life with psychedelic patterns and animations to create an immersive multimedia show.

But the most surprising element for the mall’s more than 750,000 weekly visitors was a swarm of 44 Lucie micro drones circling the tower, complemented by stage fog and lasers. When the show starts, a single hero drone dressed as a red desert flower circles the central pillar before being joined by its companions in a grand finale.

Talisman is an example of how a joint creative vision can result in a compelling combination of drone technology with more traditional effects such as LED screens or stage fog.

Fantastic Journey - Princess Cruises


Fantastic Journey - Princess Cruises

Verity Studios’ Lucie micro drones are featured as part of the on-board entertainment for Princess Cruises’ new ship, the Majestic Princess.

What we did

Princess Cruises launched a new cruise ship in April 2017: the Majestic Princess. Onboard was a world first, a swarm of flying Lucie® micro drones dancing and interacting with a singer onstage. The show drones synchronize their movements and lights to the show’s music and stage effects, which include stage lighting, projections, and stage fog as part of the ship’s show: Fantastic Journey. 

Show director, Danny Teeson, said the choreographed drones were “visually stunning”. “The drones speak for themselves. To have a fantastic singer be elevated amongst choreographed drones – you don’t need anything else. It just transports you for that moment.” 

Cruise ships are challenging environments for many technology installations and this success speaks to the maturity of Verity’s indoor drone show system.

“We told Verity it would be a challenge, but they said ’we can do it’,” said Tracy Andronek, Production Operations Automation, Scenic and Drones.

The Lucie micro drones have now fascinated audiences in over 100 performances, with many more to come. “They were just mesmerized at the drones and you can see people pointing and saying ‘ahhhh’ during the number,” said Andronek.
This is the world’s first autonomous indoor drone swarm performance on a cruise ship.

Circus Knie


Circus Knie

Featuring 32 Lucie micro drones performing in unison with acrobats under the enchanting roof of a big top provides feast for the senses.

What we did.

Switzerland’s national circus travels the country each year with its acrobats and menagerie. In the past, Circus Knie toured with elephants, a highlight of the show. But after deciding to retire its elephants to a peaceful life in the Knies Kinderzoo (children’s zoo), Circus Knie needed to replace them with something just as spectacular.

So, Circus Knie decided to add 32 of Lucie® micro drones to the mix. Dancing under the roof of the big-top circus tent, the drones perform alongside the family act, which includes Franco Knie Jr., his wife Linna and son Chris Rui. “This is a world premier for Swiss audiences,” said Franco Knie Jr. “Such an act is unique in a traveling circus.”

With this act, Knie Jr. was excited about combining technology and tradition. "At Circus Knie, we always make sure that we present modern elements in addition to tradition to offer a show for young and old," he said. “In search of components for the modern touch, we soon became aware of Verity Studios’ fantastic drone shows online. After first discussions, we quickly agreed that the drones should become one of the highlights of our 2018 program.”

Based on the feedback from audiences, it was the right decision. “We have received much positive feedback from visitors who appreciate the drone show, especially the interaction between light and music. We also often hear from visitors that they like it because it's something completely new and different in a circus show.”

A traveling circus is a challenging environment, but Knie Jr. said Verity was up to the challenge. “The experts at Verity Studios have responded very well and quickly to the special needs we face in the traveling circus business.”

This is the world’s first autonomous indoor drone swarm to tour with a circus.

Key facts.

• The world’s first autonomous indoor drone show in a touring circus
• Year: 2018
• 10m diameter (44 ft) circular stage
• Performed 7 shows per week for 9 months

New York Knicks Pre-Game Show


New York Knicks Pre-Game Show

Verity Studios is making its debut on the American sports scene as a highlight of the New York Knicks season home opener at Madison Square Garden.

Lighting up the sky at Madison Square Garden, Verity’s Lucie® micro drones were some of the most valuable players in the 2017-2018 New York Knicks season.

In the pre-game show, the micro drones flew in sync with 16 dancers and their LED costumes in front of more than 20,000 audience members for 40 shows.

The micro drones flew above the Knicks City Dancers in the team’s brand colors, in a variety of configurations before landing gently in the performers’ outstretched hands.

This was the world’s first permanent autonomous indoor drone show in a full-scale arena.

RSA Conference


RSA Conference

The Lucie™ micro drones opened the 2018 RSA Conference in a one-time performance at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

Opening the 2018 RSA Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, 32 Lucie® micro drones danced in harmony with 3 opera singers.

The micro drones were carefully choreographed to convey the changing emotions of the act. “When the drones first appeared, the song was light and melodic – and the drones were like fireflies and beautiful,” said Sandra Toms from the RSA Conference. “As the song changed to dark and moody, the drones changed to an ominous red color.”

RSA is the world’s leading cyber security conference, so the addition of cutting-edge drone technology ideally complemented the opening act. “When the drones came back, people in the back jumped up and used their phones to video tape what was happening,” said Toms. “It was unexpected, and the audience appreciated the surprise.”

Key facts.

• Year: 2018
• One-time event
• 18.29m x 12.19m (60 ft x 40 ft) flight space

USI Conference


USI Conference

15 Lucie® micro drones in lampshade costumes lit up the Carrousel du Louvre, participating in the 2019 USI Events Conference.

A potent concentration of all things digital, the annual USI conference challenges, explores and questions the future; artificial intelligence, ethics, design, economy, philosophy and neuroscience. As part of this year's USI conference in Paris, Verity's founder and CEO Raffaello D'Andrea gave a presentation titled "Flying Machines" and presented a live drone costume show to the audience. The Lucie micro drones were dressed as lampshades in the French colors. They performed an aerial ballet to the French classic "La Valse d'Amélie".
The drone choreography began with circular motions and swarm-like movements and ended with a depiction of the French flag, flying in the wind. The lampshade costumes adorning the Lucie micro drones were all designed and produced by Verity's Léa Pereyre, the world’s only drone costume designer.

Costumed drones were not the only highlight of the event. The one-hour presentation by D'Andrea covered cutting-edge topics, such as artificial intelligence, social media, cryptocurrencies, and the potential of drones in the industrial space.

"Science is about discovering what the world is about and engineering is about creating what doesn’t exist” explained D’Andrea, when elaborating on his inner drive. "I was interested in how to use knowledge to create things, it’s the real difference between science and engineering. Most people don’t realize there is a difference, but there is a huge difference."

Frequently asked questions

Do you provide drone shows for outdoor venues?

Our Lucie micro drones only weigh 50g (1.8oz), which makes them very safe when flying near people, but due to their light weight, they are unsuitable for outdoor use. Generally, we do not operate outdoors, except in areas very well protected from wind and weather. 

How long do the drones fly? What is the charging time? 

Each of our Lucie micro drones take approximately one hour to charge and can fly for up to 3 minutes. For a longer effect, you can stagger the micro drones’ take-off and landing.

How many drones can you fly together?

Our technology supports an unlimited number of autonomous drones to fly simultaneously. The optimum number of drones for your project is determined by the available space and the creative concept.   

Do you fly above audiences?

Because our Lucie micro drones only weigh 50g (1.8oz), they are very safe when flying near or above people.In most cases we fly above the stage area and performers on stage. In one-time events we have performed above the audience as well. 

How can I get your drones at my event?

Depending on your requirements we will typically need a 4 to 12-week lead-time. We'll develop a creative concept for the drone show choreography and will produce a first 3D animation for your review. We'll also start assembling the equipment you'll need. Once we have shipped the equipment, Verity will come on site for the installation, or we’ll train your staff to do the installation themselves.  If you’re doing a one-time event, our staff will then remain on-site to operate the drone show.  If you’re planning a permanent installation, we will train your staff to operate the drone show and do regular drone maintenance. 

How much maintenance does the system need? 

Our Lucie micro drones are equipped with sensors to monitor their status and will tell you when they require maintenance. We will train the local crew to perform maintenance on the drones. 

How much weight can your drones carry?

Our Lucie micro drones weigh 50g (1.8oz) and are not designed to carry loads. However, we have developed ultra-light weight costumes, which can be attached to the drones, if desired. 

How can I customize the drones for my project?

We can accommodate several types of customization. For example, we can offer client-specific, custom-made costumes. This will be a customized creative and technical project with lead times between 4 and 8 months. We also offer costume design services for the Lucie micro drones, and other technical customization services. These services will incur additional costs and longer lead times. For more information, please get in touch with our sales team.

What flight space can you cover?

We’ve covered indoor event spaces up to small sporting arena size. There is no upper size limit.

My venue has a no-drone policy, will this be a problem?

We’ve had approval to fly in many different venues, in more than 20 countries worldwide. Because our Lucie micro drones are so light and safe, we’ve also been approved to fly in venues with no-drone policies like Changi Airport in Singapore. We will support you in obtaining approval in your venue if required.
