Video: A Drone's Eye View of the World From 33,000 Feet

Drones continue to evolve, become smarter and more powerful. Case in point, is this video in which Russian drone makers set a new record for highest flight, taking their remote controlled aircraft up to a height of 10 km (33,000 feet). As you can imagine, the views from up there are pretty spectacular. The clip is fairly long, but gives you a good idea of what it takes to reach such altitudes, and what the drone can "see" as it it goes up.

Pretty amazing, but a little worrisome if a commercial or military jetliner is cruising by at that altitude.

Wow, that was awesome. I think I could here the motor bearings more and more as it went up. I wonder at what point they would freeze, if at all. Very interesting
