It’s the ultimate challenge of skill and determination as pilot teams of two prepare their state-of-the-art radio controlled drones for takeoff. With each new episode, four teams enter the Airena hoping to successfully battle it out and move on to the semi-final episodes. At the end of the competition, only one team can be declared the winner. UK stars Will Best and Rachel Stringer return as hosts, ready for a sky high season complete with flame throwers, laser beams and aerial mayhem.
