The Noor 8K remastered is a non-narrative short drone film shot entirely on DJI Mini 2 in beautiful landscapes of frozen Baikal lake in the Eastern Siberia region of Russia.

The region of Baykal lake is famous for winter travels due to fact that this world’s largest pure water lake gets frozen and became one of the most beautiful sites in the world. Rocky clips froze during the storms and get white lower parts together with dark blue see-through ice make it amazing to photograph.

Flight Views: Lake District, England In An Autogyro

They have no wings. Instead, an unpowered rotor provides lift and a small engine and propeller at the back give forward speed.

Recent video of Lake District autogyro flight:
