Drones overfly Champs-Elysees in 'magical' Paris festival

France is the world leader in the market for civilian drones, selling 300,000 of the devices last year -- three times as many as in 2014The Champs-Elysees was the setting of a mini-air show on Sunday as amateur drone enthusiasts flew their high-tech toys over the famed Paris avenue in the city’s first festival celebrating the gadgets. “It’s really magical to be at a site like the Champs-Elysees, one of the most famous places in the world,” said Dunkan Bossian, 19, one of eight pilots who competed in the race. Part of the famous avenue — which is carless on the first Sunday of every month — was converted into a drone aviary for the occasion, a space confined in netting that is about eight metres (25 feet) high and 140 metres long.
