2018 Fireworks Challenge


Ladies and gentlemen, we have ourselves some winners :tada:

The judges have scored all 10 valid entries, each judge’s scores have been ranked from 1st to 10th, all the ranks have then been averaged, and then those averages have been ranked for the final positions.

The 2018 Fireworks Challenge Winner - Bronze goes to @PaperCrane for his video:

The 2018 Fireworks Challenge Winner - Silver goes to @MementoMori for his photo:

Well done chaps. Only 12 months to practice until the next lot.
New Years fireworks mini task? :joy:


Well done to the worthy winners, some great stills and videos :+1:


I’ll 2nd that!!! Well done you guys!!! Awesome entries :clap:


Nice work gentlemen. And so brave flying in the dark.
It is so satisfying to note the contrast between the vibe on the UK site vs the US mavic site. It is all so angry and concerned with things like drones being shot down, vs our lyrical, artistic and friendly approach, cheers, here’s to many more competitions.


I still reckon you deserve a “ I flew on the Dark Side” Badge ,Tim !


Thank you @UnluckyTimmeh, @Paul_M, @sunstone, @DougT


All deserved, great stuff guys


Thanks all. Sorry it’s taken me some time to respond. Poxy wifi in this corner of Arizona.

Love those two photos. Great shot @chrisjohnbaker - wish I’d had the guts to fly a bit higher!
