In March 2012 we planned to make aerial shots for a TV documentary of the lost Kingdom of Arakan in todays Myanmar near the Bay of Bengal. Mrauk-U, a fine last royal capital of Rakhine has scenic beauty and historical remains which are inextricable and remarkable. Innumerable pagodas belonging to all ages can be found throughout the city. It is no wonder that Mrauk-U is popularly known as the 'Land of Pagodas' and Europeans remarked Mrauk-U as 'The Golden City'.
To realize the aerial images we used a so called Mikrokopter, a tiny multirotor flying machine which is controlled by a wireless remote control. The camera is also controlled by wireless transmission of the videosignal to a high-resolution video goggles which gives the pilot realtime control about the recorded image.
All the scenes has been NOT stabilized in post production, NOT slowed down, only some color correction was made.

To realize a long distance flight of 13 minutes, a high capacity lithium polymer battery from was used.
The aerial material will be used in a TV-documentary about the "Lost Kingdom of Arakan".
