Drown camera was recently used during monsoon session held at Suvarna Vidhana Soudha (SVS) of Belagavi, in order to keep eye on the movements of several agitation going outside SVS.

Drones or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) are hot, in more ways than one. It’s a new billion-dollar industry that is literally selling more than it can make. It’s also attracting more controversy in its infancy than most gadgets do in a lifetime. Here are some that I have spent some time with.
And then came the DJI Phantom 3 Professional which rewrites every rule. It has a 4K video camera mounted on a motorised gimbal (to shoot the smoothest video ever) and GPS so your drone will come back on its own and never get lost or fly away when you lose control.
It has an auto take-off and auto land feature, returns to within inches from where it took off when the battery runs low or loses connection with the remote.
It has a 2km range (check YouTube for Phantom World record videos of how far and high a Phantom has been sent out), has sensors and extra cameras to enable accident-free flying inside a building or small room, streams 4K video back from as far as 2km, an intelligent battery that gives you about 23 minutes of “air time” and is rock steady and impossibly easy to fly.
