This Drone Video of China’s Grand Canyon Starts So Beautifully, But Then…

Beyond the clouds, beyond the hustle and bustle, there’s an amazing place called Enshi Canyon.

China’s so-called Grand Canyon is located in Hubei Province. It’s long and narrow—only 1.7 miles wide, with a total length of 67 miles, and a total area of more than 115.8 sq miles.

National Geographic photographer Carsten Peter wanted to capture its beauty using a radio-controlled heli-cam.

Everything seemed perfect at first, but suddenly it started dropping, and ended up crashing.

He had to walk down into the canyon to look for it.

Carsten: “I found the copter.”
Friend: “That’s awesome!”
Carsten: “But it doesn’t look awesome.”

How frustrating!
