An aerial video made by a drone of the Langkawi sky bridge.
It is actually a tourist attraction and a foot bridge.
You know the so called bridge built by American Indians overlooking the
grand canyon right?
This sky bridge takes that idea to the next level.
A single tower supports the center and cables are added for support as
well.

Unlike most "bridges to nowhere", that one will likely pay for itself
many times over.

Based on the altitude, distance and other factors, I'm almost betting
it's from a helicopter.

Which proves you know jack shit.
From the descriptions: 2300 feet above sea level.
Hell, drones are being flown in Denver Colorado.
They've been flown in most of the mountains in the USA.
I recently saw a flight in Breckenridge, Co.
Atlitude: 9600 feet.

bullis, don't get me started. It's you who DOESN'T know Jack Shit.

Like you think Dubai is in Africa. And men have more ribs than women,
and women don't have an Adams Apple. So shut the fuck up, troll, on
saying other people are stupid. Because remember, it's YOU who has the
official nickname richard the st00pid. For a reason.

So show me where it shows this video was taken by a drone.

And by the way, dumbass, what I mean by altitude is not MSL altitude
but altitude from where the person flying it is, and distance from
where the person flying it is.

Now go back to building your dome home.

This one has on screen data showing the altitude as it happens.

My point? What was yours?
You thought a phantom can't fly 2300 feet above the ground from the
starting point.
This video clearly shows how wrong you are.
Well maybe not wrong, just not educated.

Based on the altitude, my guess is the OP shot the video in something
else. Think about it bullis. Flying your drone above your house in
your neighborhood at 5,000 feet is one thing.
If it falls, it falls in the park or someone else's backyard.

Flying it above the middle of 'nowhere' and it falls, it's gone. Bye
Bye.

Oh expert of aviation, please educate me as to what a "fixed wing
bird" is.

On the video posted, my best guess is he was flying Line of Sight, which
means he had to be within less than 200 feet of it all times.
I lose sight of mine at about that.

Really Evan? You are that ignorant?
Oh I know, you're testing me.
Every aircraft built by man has a wing of some sort.
The wings are either "fixed" or they are not.
Fixed wings means that the wings can not move in any direction.
Hobby remote controlled airplanes are generally of the fixed wing type.
Helicopters, are technically referred to as "rotory" aircraft.
UAV helicopters are also known as multirotor aircraft.

Calling an aircraft a "bird" has been around since the wright brothers.

What you don't comprehend is "fixed wing" and "bird" are two different
things. A bird is a helicopter. I don't know anyone who would refer to
a plane as a "fixed wing bird".

Let me put this in terms you may follow better, and as always, feel
free to ask an adult to help if you don't understand:

"fixed wing" as you described, means the wings do not move.

A bird flies by moving their wings.

A helicopter moves its wings.

A airplane does not.

A helicopter is a bird.

A airplane is not a 'fixed wing bird.'

Haven't yet seen an animal with rotary wings.

So what would be the meaning of "Two choppers and two snakes are on the way?"

Snakes are Cobras. Cobras are helicopters. Helicopters are birds. So snakes are birds. Then they eat their own tails.

And what of the Gooney Bird? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_C-47_Skytrain#Operational_history

You guys are both full of crap.

Rather large error count here, but I suspect the rolls involved know
that. (Example: The wings of a fixed-wing aircraft move--even it is
only to break and fall off.)
