          Great shot of Jiankou.
          Compare the clarity of that with my shots from the passenger cabin - if only airlines kept their customers' windows as clean as the pilots'!

                fpv = first person view, it's subjective. There's a camera on the drone, you catch the video signal by radio inside your googles... It's like you're onboard...

                  Re: Great Wall Aerial Photos

                  Isn't it a violation to many Chinese laws to take aerial shots anywhere in China?


                  -chinoook
                  chinoook's 1st law: Structurally weak walls tend to have double structures.
                  chinoook's 2nd law: Newer walls are built next older walls, not over them.
                  chinoook's 3rd law: Similar problems lead to similar solutions.

                      It would be a great way to explore the military area at Gubeikou.

                        I could do that. I already have some experience with the Chinese military and how to get arrested ...
