Undaunted by Government Warning, Drone Pilots Capture China in 360 Images

Fed up with drones causing flight incidents, the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) introduced a tighter drone regulation on May 16th, 2017. But it hasn’t stopped aerial lovers venturing into unique places for the best shots. Many stunning aerial 360° images have been captured by enthusiasts.

In mere two months of VeeR launching 360° photo hosting service, hundreds of Chinese 360° photographers have shared their works. It seems that drone lovers don’t care much about what the big government has to say. Breathtaking shots are taken from bustling cities to otherworldly scenic areas, with many of the sites clearly being no-fly zones. The following 360° photos are selected among thousands, presenting some of the most unique aerial experiences (enter full screen to click and drag the 360° pictures for best views).
