How many drones does it take to change a light bulb? A better question might be, how many light bulbs will you break in the process? 

The answer to the first question ultimately depends on what type of drones you have available and who’s flying them. It took two quadcopters to complete the task in the video above, but only because the first one was “crap,” as the pilot put it in his follow-up clip

And for the light bulbs, we counted nine, but that’s a small price to pay for progress.
