WOW, so much work and digging on the surroundings nowadays. The tower looks massive. The workers and the cranes look completely busy

Not only unreal, but possibly also illegal. Perhaps an exception could be made if the drone was tied to the ground with a long string or something. That way, it could technically classify as a kite.

There are many high quality 4K videos of the new Apple Campus 2 shot from drones so I don't see why there would be a problem.

You do the they are thousands of miles apart, and in different countries? What flies in CA may not even in another state, never mind another country half way around the world.

That is true, there are many people still living in the stone age.

Oops, your manner of thinking must be in the stone age

The whole area of the project is closed completely by land and air

I have seen cam drones in my cousin's wedding night

What do you mean by air? Are drones allowed in SA?

I see from time to time u/c pics taken by drones in China.


If someone in Jeddah starts a crowdfunding to buy one i would give some money

They are in everywhere and I myself took this image in my cousin's wedding



But I'm sure if someone would use a drone in the area of the project, he might need a permission from the constructor for safety issues or another reason. There is no need for crowdfunding

Maybe the air image of the tower that I posted in the last page was taken by a drone

The UAE loves drones.

There are people here in the USA that are still living in the stone age.

Of course it's a huge amount of concrete but if i get it right it rose about ONE FLOOR PER MONTH !?!?!
With this speed we could wait till 2030 before it will be complete
