Using Drones to Shoot War Zones
A drone is a wonderful thing. I recently purchased one and have been trying it out in a gentle manner. Mostly for fun, but one day I hope I'll be able to post some nice videos on here.
My use of the drone is fun and personal use only, but everyone uses their drone(s) differently.
For example, drones are being used more and more in war zones. Not just to kill people from a distance, but more importantly, to document war and it's consequences in never before seen images that hit home.

Exploring The Unbeaten Path
Our friend Bob THissen is a familiar name on this site. His exploits under the name of Exploring The Unbeaten Path have been posted many times before today.
However, today's offering holds a special place in our hearts as it shows us a place we have visited on TCP before.
All the way back in 2010 Den Efremov sent us his UrbEx photos of a place in the Ukraine with loads of abandoned Soviet military hardware.
Bob has visited the same place and it shows us the planes and choppers are still there, just slightly more decayed. However, the local police were there too and arrested Bob and his friend.
After hours spent at a local policestation, the police were satisfied they were not spies byu t simeply Urban Explorers.
