Going Bananas For Drones 4

In a new short video that has surfaced on TikTok, some chimps monkey around by flying the Autel Evo drone.  The ape looks to be able to fly the drone fairly well and seems to understand that he is in control of it, as it looks down every few seconds at the controller and then back up to the drone. The apes even pose with a smile for a photo, showing the amount of fun they are having flying the drone.

The Rare Species Fund (RSF) hand-delivered three EVO Rugged drone kits to rangers from the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) in Kampala last week. The UWA is the governmental agency responsible for maintaining and patrolling the national parks of Uganda, which is home to many endangered and threatened species, including elephants, rhinos, chimpanzees, and the very rare mountain gorillas. Poaching remains the largest threat to the conservation of much of Uganda’s wildlife. The RSF provided UWA with its first ever drone in 2017

Nice to see they are fallowing FAA part 107 rules for spotters.

For now, no further news has been released about the flying-drone-apes and no studies have been done to test whether the animals really know they are the ones flying the drone or if they were just paid actors. From what we can tell, no drones were harmed in the making of this video.
