The ongoing battle to be the record holder for the most UAVs flown simultaneously continues as Intel unveils its plans to reclaim the title.

The technology giant held the record of 1,218 UAVs, until last week when it was dethroned by Chinese drone specialist Ehang.

Despite reports that the 13-minute display over the City Wall of Xi’an, which featured 1,374 UAVs, was an ‘epic fail’, Ehang took the lead.

While the record changed hands less than a week ago, Intel already has plans in the pipeline to square up to Ehang’s new record.

The organisation plans to mark its 50th anniversary with a a record-breaking drone performance, featuring 1,500 UAVs.

“Intel has been advancing technology for 50 years. To celebrate that fact and showcase our ongoing innovation, we’re looking to break another drone light show record with our Intel Shooting Star drones and related technology,” said Anil Nanduri, vice president and general manager of the Intel drone team.
