Brazil Drone Videos

With over 200 million inhabitants and a land area of 8.5 million square km (3.3 million square mi), Brazil is the sixth largest country in the world in population and fifth in land area.  This Portuguese-speaking country (a legacy of its colonial heritage) is the dominant country in South America, dwarfing its (Spanish-speaking) neighbors on the continent.  Brazil is perhaps best known for the Amazon River running through the country and the vast Amazon Rainforest which is the most defining feature of the interior of the country.  Brazil is also known for its urban concentrations, with its two largest cities Rio De Janeiro and Sao Paolo, both of which lie in the southeastern part of the country, having a combined population of well over 30 million.  With massive metropolises, world-famous beaches, dense jungle-rainforest, and spectacular mountains, Brazil has much to offer from an aerial point of view.
