I'm stunned that Renan Ozturk pulled off photographing Everest by drone at 23,000 ft.
It's an incredible achievement considering the odds against him. Extreme wind, elevation, and cold are no-goes for drone flight, and all three were present. Drones like this aren't designed to fly half that elevation. Cold batteries don't produce enough lift for safe takeoff. And drones will not come back if the wind exceeds the drone's max airspeed. I lost one this way.
I would have had so much anxiety doing this shot because it comes down to having just a few minutes of flight to get the shot after months of preparation. What do you make of this shot?
