An improvement over the walking automaton idea.
A string of 2 or more quadcopters strung together with
some visible material such as ribbon or a string of lights.
These flying, bendable lines can be flown in various
configurations to draw moving figures, spell words or
create decorative patterns.
Art using quadcopters is becoming more
popular, but you
need a lot of them to get the job done. Stringing highly
visible material between them allows you to create flying,
animated images with lines instead of just dots, that is,
the quadcopters being used as pixels.

My old idea.
Baked and patented, but that's ok. My new one is better than this. [doctorremulac3, Dec 21 2016]
||Where does it say you've strung lights or other visual
material between them? Again, I'll post your non idea
so you don't go back and change it. You strike me as
kind of a scumbag.

||The Drone Aerobatic Display Team will neither
deny their existence. Unobserved nose to tail flying
circles is a particular favourite, were there to
such a manoeuvre.
The biggest difference between Drone Aerobatics and
conventional flying teams is in the observing
which is them and not you.
Their motto? Now They See You, Now You Don't.

||//You strike me as kind of a scumbag.// Ha - cheer up. Angry words will get you no where except the negative place. Kindness and humour works best with me, and a polite request for permission to replicate my ideas will always receive a generous response.
||By trying to steal my idea, you
prompted me to do some research.
||In searching for the patents that Disney filed for
animated drone light shows, I found not only what
you're saying you invented, but the first
incarnation of my invention as well all filed back in
||In thinking about what was to be the clear claim of
my patent, I invented
something totally different, the bendable,
reconfigurable sky drawing system that allows you
to use many fewer drones to create animated
images in the sky. I also found out that this form of
entertainment has big time investors. I'll be
starting the filing of my patent today.
||See links of patents of my old idea and what you
are trying to say is your idea.
||Just thought of an ancillary invention I'm going to
patent for this.
