Good morning, here are yesterday’s headlines as well as an amazing drone video of Masada in Israel. Enjoy!
- Scientists created a drone with an origami arm to pick things up
- Ten people charged for large-scale drone deliveries of drugs and phones into English prisons
- Amazon receives patent to literally ‘drop’ packages from a drone on your doorstep or patio
- Drone Racing League and BMW to build the fastest racing drone
- Union Pacific spies with drones on their railroad workers to see if they follow safety guidelines
Today’s video is from Jeffrey Worthington who was allowed to fly his Inspire 2 drone over the amazing fortress of Masada.
This is what he had to say about it:
“It was an honor to be allowed to film over some of Israel’s priceless archaeological treasures. Special thanks to Israel’s National Park Authority. Flying solo (i.e. operating the drone and the camera alone) with two remote control units was a huge challenge, especially on a windy day!”
Well, I think you pulled it off, Jeff! Congrats on some awesome footage.
