A Unique View of New York City [Weekend Watch]

This is an incredible video of a a remote-controlled plane flying  exploring New York City from a true “birds-eye” view.

From ars technica:

The video was shot with a remote-controlled aircraft that has one video camera feeding images back to the operator, along with a second, passive camera taking the video that was edited together for the official release. The video was shot between 7 and 8am, those being the only hours they could safely avoid air traffic. If you’d like more information about the aircraft or the build itself, there is a thread on RCGroups with a wealth of information.
