DroneRise – first drone delivery in Ireland, Mars 2020 rover mission and more…

Good morning, Here are the headlines you may have missed yesterday. The first ever successful drone delivery in Ireland took place last week. And a small helicopter drone is planned to accompany the Mars 2020 rover mission. Lastly, we have a beautiful video of the Colosseum in Pula, Croatia. Jump right in!

Yesterday’s headlines

Today’s video

Today we have 4K drone footage of the Colosseum in Pula, Croatia (no, not in Rome) that was captured with the DJI Mavic Pro. The footage was shot by #Mr.DroneGuy. According to Wikipedia the Pula Arena is “the only remaining Roman amphitheater to have four side towers and with all three Roman architectural orders entirely preserved. It was constructed in 27 BC – 68 AD[1] and is among the six largest surviving Roman arenas in the World.” Enjoy!
