Can Drones Fly To Space

Can Drones Fly To Space?

While it may seem crazy, it is actually very possible for a drone to record earth from space, however it needs a little assistance which in this case comes in the form of a weather balloon.

A weather balloon allows a drone to get to the incredibly high altitude required in order to be able to see the circumference of planet earth. Once the weather balloon reaches a certain point, the balloon will pop, resulting in the drone falling back to earth. As long as you have a long range control system, and enough battery in your drone you should be able to glide it back to earth.

The following video provides a real-world example of this, along with some stunning footage!
