These spectacular birds-eye views of Uluru, offering a never before seen perspective of the 600 million year old monolith, were captured by the first drone to ever operate under permit inside Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
Uluru is the tip of a huge rock that continues below the ground for possibly 5-6km. Uluru is 3.6km long and 348m at its tallest point. That is 43m higher than Sydney's Centrepoint Tower, 24m higher than the Eiffel Tower and just 33m lower than the Empire State Building.
The colour changes of Uluru result from the filtering effect of the earth's atmosphere on the sun's rays.

This is what drones were really made for.

Visual effects team Corridor Digital has produced an action packed video about a bunch of Parrot drones and remote controlled cars battling "battery bandits" to save the life of their teddy bear friend.

Think "Toy Story," but with a lot more explosions and some '80s montage music.

You can watch the creators talk more about the drones use in the video and how it was made here.
