UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) P1050272

Move cursor into photo, now RIGHT click; now select ORIGINAL & you will then need to use the horizontal & vertical scroll bars to view the entire high resolution photo.

 

It takes 2 people; 1 person operates the UAV's flight controller, the other person operates the camera controls & has a monitor so they can see the stills, or videos the camera is taking.

 

It has a flight time of 6-7 minutes, battery powered.

 

Line of sight maximum distance is .75 mile for flight controller & costs, "multiple thousands of dollars" not counting the camera

 

I was so enthralled when walking past Pierce Park that I forgot about my camera when the UAV was flying overhead.
