DroneRise – 4K drone video of Matara, Sri Lanka

Good morning, today’s drone video showcases the town of Matara in Sri Lanka. Unfortunately, we do not have a lot of information on the drone that was used to create the video other than that is was shot in 4K. Nonetheless, this 4k drone video is worth a watch, so grab a cup of coffee and check it out. As far as news goes, we have an official letter from DJI demanding that a video of a misleading drone collision test will be removed. Ongoing investigations of a near miss at Albury Airport in the UK. Boys flying a drone and disturbing endangered dotterels. A UFO spotted over New Jersey. An amphibious drone and more.
