Apes have been photographed and videoed flying an Autel Robotics Evo drone at the Myrtle Beach Safari in South Carolina by photographer Nick B.
In the short video we can see two apes, one standing and holding the controller to the Autel Evo drone, and the other sitting with the drone’s carrying case.
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.
Should they have given the drone to an animal that is wild after all?
It’s not often we see these types of videos of animals being behind the controls, but we often see humans fly drones and capturing the wildlife.
