Welcome to a special air-dition of Airmageddon.
The final may be over, but the smashing,
crashing and high-speed dashing is still going.
Our best aviators and their wingmen return to the Airena
for one final fight fest.
We'll be flying down memory lane in the inaugural Airmageddon Airwards.
It's time for the heavyweights, AKA WASP, DRAGON and GUARD to face off.
Time to turn your electronic devices into aviation mode -
this is Airmageddon!
Welcome to the Airena, the home of drones.
It's time to get this special up and flying, and I think we should
-kick things off with some aviator action, don't you, Will?
Yes, our aviators have been fearless,
skilled and tactical here in the Airena,
but perhaps one quality has defined them all - the need for speed.
We've had some sensationally fast - some would even say reckless -
runs of the Airsault Course over the series, but one question
remains unanswered - who is the fastest aviator in the land?
Let's find out as we invite back the fastest fliers from our heats
to take on the course one final time.
It's time to decide Airmageddon's fastest flyer.
-Let's meet our aviators!
Please welcome out our four speed demons - Shadow Vulture,
followed by Team Vertigo.
There's Team Infiniti.
Finally, the Dronebusters.
Well, we know they're all fast, but who's the fastest?
We're about to find out. Come on, guys.
Who's going to be patrolling the Airsault Course this time?
I like big wasps and I cannot lie.
And he shares many similarities with his insect counterpart -
he's yellow and black, he has a sting in his tail
and he's chasing me around the studio! Argh!
Our first speed demons taking on the Airsault Course are Team Vertigo
and hero Oscar is the throttlemeister,
helped at the controls by wingmum Tanya.
With his steampunk-style drone, Oscar showed his class at the heats,
flying through the course in an incredible 1 minute, 16 seconds.
What a time. What can he post today?
So you were super quick in your heats, but you need to be
quicker this time, I think, to beat the other teams.
Have you got what it takes?
Yeah, I think, I have an idea to not stop at all
and just go through the corners without levelling and hovering and
being perfect, but just being fast instead of being totally perfect.
That sounds like a great tactic, nice and smooth.
That seems to be one thing that most of our really quick timers
-have got in common.
-OK, I'm excited to see this in action.
Aviators, stand by.
Fire up your motors, rev up your rotors -
you're cleared for takeoff!
We have four fiercely fast flyers back with us again today.
Big things in store.
Oscar, a member of the Magic Circle,
so he perhaps has a few wee tricks in his hat.
Oh, there's the WASP, looking a bit rough.
Liftoff in three, two, one...
-Thank you, Air Marshall.
-Off they go. The best of the best.
These aviators really are the best, Will.
Oscar is probably the best of the best...
when it comes to wearing hats, anyway.
Now, I wonder if there's a white rabbit under there
he can hoick out.
Some magic here with the Letterboxes of Luck.
As for me, I can't wear hats.
Nice, nice. Really nice. Close, but good.
I've got a massive heid. It gets in the way.
Anyway, enough about me heid, there's gate number two. Beautiful.
He now turns towards the Pillars of Precision, all four of them.
So far so good. Come on, Oscar!
He makes them look like nothing.
He laughs in the face of the Pillars of Precision.
Gate three and he turns towards The Vortex.
This needs to be fast.
This is windier than the Air Marshall
after a plate of sprouts.
Woof! Dealt with that one well.
Now, Columns of Control.
There's the WASP looking mean, angry.
He was out all night at a house-swarming party, so I've heard.
Airsault Course complete.
Magical display. 1.23, great time.
-How did that feel? Good, good.
-I went a lot faster, I think. I think.
It was one of those...
You can tell it's good when it almost doesn't feel that quick
because you weren't rushing, there wasn't,
like, zoom and then stop and then change, it really did flow like...
It's almost like water, you were just flowing around the course.
-Well done. How was that for you?
-Very good. I'm happy.
-He did great. He did great.
Well, our next team out is Team Infiniti, aviator Umar,
wingman Ami, from Essex. We know them well.
This Olympic-inspired drone certainly does shift,
and it's shifted them to the third fastest time in history -
75 seconds in the heat.
-So are you excited about this?
-Yeah, I am.
Because, when you did your semifinal,
you posted what can only be described
as a ridiculously quick time and I'm excited to see you do it again
because it feels like now you've got nothing to lose.
Are you going to really push yourself?
Yeah, I'm going to smack the record.
He's going to smack the record! The record that HE set on this course!
All right, then, I'm excited. Let's see how it goes. Aviators, stand by.
Fighting talk, Will. Can he put his throttle where his mouth is?
I wouldn't recommend that one. Or fighting the WASP.
Look how excited they are. Who da man?
He's the man. I'm the Air Marshall.
Launch in three, two, one...
Let's bring it on.
-I really want to see a quick time here.
Maybe the first sub-minute time.
Certainly possible with these guys.
Look at the pace they're cracking off at.
Apparently Umar broke his first drone.
He wouldn't want that to happen again as he goes through
the first LOL.
I can't see!
Whoa, my goodness!
He's clipped! He's down, you know!
-I can't even see it.
-It's all right, it's all right.
Take a look at a replay again.
I think it was the depth perception there, he clipped the far side
of the Hurdles of Horror and at high-speed, too.
There was no recovering from that. No winners there, except gravity.
Oh, man! You were going SO fast, you were going...
I think you were going too fast for your own good.
Yeah, I couldn't see it. It was going near that pole.
-You definitely smacked it!
Yeah, I think we're going to have to get a new set of hurdles,
the speed you were going!
Well, look, the good thing is, you were pushing yourself
to the absolute limit.
The bad thing is, you seemed to push it a little bit too far.
-But have you had a good time today?
It's great to have you back, mate.
He's not the man.
I'm afraid you're not a man either, Air Marshall.
Sadly, Infiniti, DNS - didn't finish.
Team Shadow Vulture are our third speed hawks
hoping to rocket to victory.
They're led by aviator Henri and his best friend, wingbuddy Sam.
These culture vultures did this to their drone.
They set an incredible time of 1 minute 10 seconds
in the heats, leaving Sam jumping for joy.
Will he be jumping after this?
So earlier, when we were chatting,
you were saying that you've got a time in mind.
-What are you going to go for?
-1:10, same as last round.
You reckon you can do the same time, but with a harder course?
-We can try.
I don't want anything slower than 1:30.
OK, that's good, that's your window - 1:10 to 1:30,
but hopefully nearer 1:10.
Well, let's find out if Shadow Vulture can do it.
All right, aviators, stand by.
Shadow Vulture, that's a scary name!
There's something else that's rather scary.
-Everything scares you, softie.
Shadow Vulture, launch in three, two, one...
Oh, to a brave few, Airmageddon's just a word.
To me, it's more like a sentence.
OK, quick. Nice and quick, yeah.
-That was a heavy bump.
-Oh, my God.
-Oh, that was more than a...
more than a bump.
It was a proper smash. It was a Richter scale number.
Now, through the first Letterbox, under the second,
Hurdles of Horror, the concentration,
sticking his tongue out.
Through gate number two.
-Towards the Pillars of Precision.
-Will it be collision?
-Sam, am I going to make it?
-I'm going to make it.
That was left and right, there. What a swing.
Slightly erratic, but still quite quick.
Yeah, I think there's a few updraughts here at the moment.
The Vortex is in overdrive.
The Funnel of Fury, as I like to call it.
Oof, dealt with that with ease.
Now, one more date
and then a little game of sting pong with you-know-who.
-OK, now, go. Don't listen to the WASP.
Ooh! Don't WASP your time, big guy! He'll burn you.
Airsault Course complete. That was close.
Well, this is the leaderboard as it stands.
Vertigo on top, 1:23,
Shadow Vulture, just one second behind.
Infiniti, as we saw, DNF - they crashed out.
-1:24, second place. Are you pleased with that performance?
Do you think you could have gone a bit faster,
-had you not done a bit of a bunny hop down there?
It takes time to lift off again, so...
If we had stayed in the air the whole way, we'd have been faster.
Our final speed masters hoping for victory are the Dronebusters.
Theo is the aviator and also a sailing enthusiast.
His dad Nicholas, Wingman.
Interesting-looking drone. A crash might just improve its looks.
But one thing it is is fast.
One minute, three seconds is the fastest ever.
So, guys, last time you posted 1:38 in the semis going round this one.
Not that quick, not by your standards.
-Do you reckon you can get faster this time?
-I think I was taking my time in the last one, just going gentle.
Because on the heat version of the Airsault Course,
-you're the record holder.
-Er, I think so.
So you need to post a quick time now to prove that it wasn't a fluke.
I think it definitely wasn't.
It wasn't a fluke and that's all I really am going to rely on.
OK. For a second I thought you said, "I think it definitely WAS a fluke."
But that's not the attitude. OK, I've got a good feeling about this,
guys. Aviators, stand by.
Batten down the hatches. Get ready to rock.
These guys were the quickest in the heats by a really long way.
Set a record on the course if you can.
Launch in three, two, one.
There you go.
Can they beat the minute mark, even?
High expectations for the Dronebusters.
He's set off at an absolutely cracking pace.
Great, lovely. Come on round. Lovely.
Here's the final LOL -
Letterbox Of Luck.
Lots of laughs if you clip it.
He turns to the Pillars of Precision.
-Looking a little stressed here.
-Move on round, you're there.
Theo the Iceman. That's what he's known as.
That's what I call them, anyway.
Because he is cool.
Line perimeter breach.
Wide. Perimeter breach. Pulls it back in, now into The Vortex.
That smoke and wind.
Rides it, rocks it, through the hoop, through the hoop.
Oh, he goes very low there. Facing the wrong way.
It's not what you want to do with the WASP, looking angry.
Oh, it's a decoy, a dummy. He shoots over the line.
1 minute, 19 seconds. I think that's the fastest.
Confirmation coming but look at the replay.
That was one hairy moment when he went really wide
but it looks like he's the man.
-These times are good.
Even the Air Marshall's a happy chappie.
Infiniti, sadly, they didn't finish. But Shadow Vulture, 1:24.
A second behind Vertigo and check out that time.
Dronebusters, 1:19 on the extra-tricky course.
-You're the winners!
-You've done it, it wasn't a fluke after all.
You've posted the fastest time. How does it feel?
Very good because, like, I'm able to say it wasn't a fluke.
Exactly, you are officially the fastest flyer in the land.
Congratulations and well done to your Wingman.
Now, for the first of our special Airwards here on Airmageddon,
the walls and floor of the Airena have been littered with
the downed drones from across the series.
Here are the nominees for Crash of the Competition.
First crash nominee by Stealth 2.2.
Quite an almighty fright at the Hurdles of Horror,
bumping from one to the next, sending them into a spin...
Warning, drone out of control.
..before smashing down.
Next up is the King's Fliers. Epic encounter with the Wall.
With a broken prop, there was nothing Rebecca could do
about this smash.
The Drone Dominators chose a unique way to crash their drone.
Unbelievably, hooking it onto a target in the Paintball Precision.
The fourth nomination goes to the Brothers Falcon,
their dramatic high-speed flight across the Airena,
after smashing their props
to pieces on the Wall, rendered them unflyable.
But the final nominee, sir,
it's you, Air Marshall.
He had his moments throughout the series
but not as dramatic as this wipe-out with the Wall.
Warning, system malfunction.
And the winner is...
Arun and William the Drone Dominators.
Oh, what a moment for them.
So much destruction, I love it.
-How did you do that?
-How do you actually do that?
Time now for another special event
and if you're an Airmageddon air-ficionado -
I literally can't resist - you'll know we hate balloons.
They're inflatable, inconsequential
and fit for nothing more than target practice.
To show you what we mean, three of our resident drones have
agreed to go head-to-head in one of our favourite games of the series.
It's time for our special resident-drone
addition of Barrage Balloon.
PIG, show the boys how to do it. The game's very simple.
The resident drones must pop their row of coloured balloons
in the quickest time in any means possible.
Flames, sparks, a stern look, mind control,
sneezing - all count in this game.
The drone that pops the most gets the bragging rights of the others.
They're looking forward to this. So am I. The big bruiser's at it.
DRAGON, that flaming breath, two metres it can go.
A pair of chopsticks on the GUARD.
Hm. Pointy bits sting for WASP.
Resident drones, stand by.
Begin popping in three, two, one.
Air Marshall has his hands full keeping order here and,
look at this. Flame-thrower.
He's zapped two straight away!
Surely the DRAGON is going to win this. That was extraordinary.
WASP getting in on the act too.
PIG said he wanted to take part.
He said he would have won but I think it was just a pig's TAIL.
Come on, GUARD.
He couldn't hit water if he fell off a boat.
Here comes the DRAGON. Oh, my goodness.
I think he's going to get himself a few fans here, that's for sure.
What's up with the GUARD?
Flames aren't everything for the GUARD.
Often imitated, never duplicated.
Whoa! Five and out.
The DRAGON is on fire. Literally.
What's he going to do now? The chopsticks are... Oh!
Well done. He's off the mark.
Well done, big fella.
-Now, what is DRAGON going to do?
-DRAGON, DRAGON, DRAGON!
The kids are egging him on to go over to the other drones' line-up.
He's done all his yellows.
That was the GUARD again.
Just about understands what's going on.
WASP. Uses the sting, uses the prongs.
He's done five as well,
so he now is turning onto poor old GUARD'S balloons.
GUARD doesn't really know what's going on.
GUARD went and saw a mind-reader
but they only charged him half-price, from what I hear.
Just one balloon left. Oh, DRAGON's got it!
When you think you know the answers with DRAGON,
he changes the questions.
He's so tricky, look at that breath.
Looking at the replay, there were really only two drones in it.
When it comes to popping balloons,
flames and sparks beat little chopsticks every time.
Great work, fellow drones.
Great work indeed by the DRAGON. Seven for him, he's on top.
WASP on six. Jury's out for the GUARD, though.
Just two. He'll be disappointed. If he knew what that meant.
We've been blown away by the extremely high standards
of design work and customisation throughout the competition.
Hours of effort have clearly gone into each team's drone
before they even entered the Airena.
Yup, so to recognise this fact, time for another award.
Here are the nominees for Airmageddon's Next Top Flying Model.
Well, we've had quite a few lookers on the show, including myself.
First up, the Dronebusters, for their
rubber-tongued beast. That's one scary monster.
Not sure if they're in the right category.
The second nominees are the Skyfliers.
They wowed us with this stunning butterfly design.
Area 51 brought hairstyles to the Airena,
with this fetching red mohawk on their drone.
Don't let the DRAGON near that one. He'd love to set fire to it.
The Flying Scotsmen made us
laugh indeed with their brilliantly designed face,
modelled on Will before he shaved.
Our final nominee is Team Vertigo,
with their incredible 3-D printed design.
I still have no idea what 3-D printing is but it's cool.
And the winner is...
The winners are Nimrita and Amarjit from Team Skyfliers.
Congratulations to the Skyfliers.
Their butterfly design really did steal the show.
It's a thing of beauty.
-Much like me.
We've enjoyed some high-flying action, breathtaking crashes
and precision flying here in the Airena.
So for our final award, it's time we relived some sensational
moments of aviator skill. These are our piloting highlights.
They all involve flying, so we're calling them...
our greatest flylights.
Ohh... And here at the nominees.
First is by team Shadow Vulture.
Sam's Wingman celebration after Henri's Airsault One
is not so much about piloting but great jumping.
Next up is the Dronebusters' incredible shot
in the Paintball Precision, where Theo was still
yawing the drone when Nicholas struck.
Third up is The Suffolk Air Squad's Dogfight escape act, where
they immediately struck back seconds after being zapped themselves.
Q Rexx are nominated for their incredible war bashing,
not letting the pendulum affect their wrecking ball,
stop them flying. So controlled.
Finally, Team Ace are nominated for their brilliant drop
performance, getting an amazing four payloads into their targets zone.
And the winners are Marcus and Steve from Team Ace.
Congratulations to them.
Time now for the final Dogfight of the season
and this time it's personal.
Everything is personal in this game. It's the Dogfight.
There is my little friend PIGGY and not-so-good friend WASP.
They're showing us how it's done.
Now you must first activate the advanced laser system.
Aviators then duel it out in the flaming combat zone one last time.
Four hits to the drone's sensors will see them crash out,
leaving the other team victorious to claim the title of top dog.
Well, we've all seen just how skilled the DRAGON
is at balloon-popping.
Just be glad you can see him and not smell him.
Two teams with a score to settle.
It was one of the closest Dogfights of the competition.
Let's just remind ourselves what went down.
Yes, indeed, Red Zumbido
versus Avengedrone, one of the closest Dogfights ever.
Both teams at the top of their piloting game, dodging,
ducking each other's lasers.
Strike after strike.
There can be only one, and in this game it's Red Zumbido.
There you go, perhaps one of the greatest Dogfights ever
contested here in the Airena.
One pilot claimed victory and one pilot rang us up and said,
"I want revenge." So let's meet our aviators again.
It's Red Zumbido and Avengedrone. Welcome back, guys.
Ivor and Kieran. So this is a real grudge match for you guys, isn't it?
We're thinking of changing our names to Revengedrone.
Uh-oh! Watch out! It means a lot.
But, you guys, one last time, are you confident you can win again?
And, Toby, have you got any game plan up your sleeve?
Well, we went slow and steady last time and obviously
that doesn't work for us.
-So this time, we'll make it quick and painless.
Painless for you, not so much for you guys.
All right, then, let's get into it. Aviators, stand by.
If this battle is anything like the last time these teams met,
it's going to be hot.
As hot as the flames that come out of that beast.
Last pre-flight checks by the teams.
Both teams launch in three, two, one.
Both teams throttling on.
No five-second advantage this time, it's a level airfield.
Targeting systems engaged.
-Targeting systems engaged, you heard the Air Marshall.
That's it, go in hard, go in hard on him.
On board with Red Zumbido, they zap, it's a miss.
Red Zumbido taking the high ground, then.
-Shoot him, shoot him.
-That's what I'm doing!
-I'm, like, going!
-Look at the viewfinder.
-I'm going fully automatic.
-Fully automatic, no!
Not fully automatic!
Most effort from the Avengedrones.
Go, go, fire.
Avengedrone, go low. At this stage, it might be worth trying anything.
I can't believe no-one's lost a life yet.
Avengedrone take aim, they've locked on and they've hit!
-On we've got a hit, we've got a hit.
Let's have a look at the replay.
Look at that again. You see Avengedrone dropping low
and then flew up, striking Red Zumbido.
Excellent shooting by the Wingman.
-Red Zumbido smoking away, they zap away and miss.
-Watch, watch, watch, watch, watch, watch!
-Look how high they are.
-Control your flying.
-I think Dad's a little trigger-happy.
Air Marshall's not happy. Teams going very high.
Going up. Shoot, shoot, shoot! Yes!
-Strike, Red Zumbido.
What a hit by a Avengedrone.
This really is Revengedrone performance. 2-0.
Red have now lost two,
Revengedrone are living up to their name, that's for sure.
-Dad, don't just go crazy.
-I am going crazy, I am going full-on.
-No, I said don't.
-Strike, Red Zumbido, one life remaining.
Revenge is a dish best served cold.
Like a salad from the chilled section of a supermarket
Right, wait for them to come up. Fire!
Can Red Zumbido pull it back from here?
The answer's no. They've been struck.
Strike, Red Z.
-No lives remain.
That rapid change of altitude caught Red Zumbido off-guard,
leaving them open for a zap.
Dogfight over. Dogfight over.
Revenge was served.
And served cold. Avengedrone 4-0 over Red Zumbido, ouch!
So, unlucky, Red Zumbidos, the Revengedrone,
-as they liked to be called today, got you 4-0.
-Well done, guys.
-Toby, what went wrong?
Erm, I think it was cos he was just going...like that. Constantly.
Dad! It always the dad's fault.
Well done. Well done, Toby. You've been fantastic, guys.
-Thank you very much.
-Well done, guys, but Revengedrone's gained revenge.
It was always going to happen. Hey, guys, what about a little handshake?
Just to show that there's no hard feelings. The hatchet's been buried.
-It's one apiece.
-Well done, guys.
Well done, everybody. That was a great, great fight.
Well, look, it's been a sensational competition.
It has indeed, and if you'd like to know more about Airmageddon and
the wonderful world of drones, log onto our website for more details.
Unfortunately, that's all we have time for it here on Airmageddon.
But like a boomerang, we'll be back with more high-flying action
and aerial excellence very soon.
Until then, remember, fly responsibly and fly safely.
And if you master the skies, you rule the world.
