Good morning, yesterday the Commercial Drone Alliance asked Congress to revoke section 336, which would require all hobbyist and recreational drone pilots to get their drone license in order to fly. We will be following developments in this area closely. Further more we have an amazing drone video showing the beauty of Namibia and Botswana, so grab your coffee and jump in.

Today’s video shows off the beauty of Namibia and Botswana. The video was shot by David Varga with his DJI Mavic Pro and Canon 6D for timelapses. The video is utterly stunning, so instead of listening to me talk about it, it is probably best to just watch it yourself. David had this to say about the short film, titled Spectacular Namibia:
“The last corners of wild nature are being lost every day, and so the pristine wildlife is becoming more and more precious to us. Surprisingly, we managed to find out one of such hidden gems, with both unique landscapes and wildlife, in Namibia located in southern Africa.”
“Please feel free to taste at least a little part of our 4×4 self-drive adventure and enjoy some of our amazing wildlife experiences (such as tracing the desert elephants in the Hoanib riverbed, bushcamping in the Mirabib rock formation, being surrounded by the big herd of elephants in Bwambwata NP or tracing the pack of Oryx antelopes in the spectacular Namib desert) from a bird’s eye perspective.”
If you have a drone film that you would like to show on DroneDJ, send us an email with a link to your video on YouTube or Vimeo and provide us some background info.
