This drone video by top AirVuz contributor Eye-Catchgraphy brings out the intense beauty of the Austrian Alps.  Technically called the Central Eastern Alps, the mountains actually also cover adjacent territory in Italy, Lichtenstein, Slovenia, and Switzerland.  The highest peak of the range (Mt. Grossglockner) sits at an elevation of about 3.8k meters above sea level (just under 12.5k ft.).  While the Austrian Alps are a bit shorter than some of their cousins to the southwest, they are as beautiful as any mountains in Europe.

Vilsegg Castle: Tyrol Mountain Fortification




Check out this drone video of an important mountain fortification in western Austria, compliments of AirVuz contributor #OBENDROHNE.  It's called Vilsegg Castle, and it's located in the state of Tyrol, less than a mile/km from the present-day Austrian-German border.  Built only 60 meters (about 200 ft.) above the Vils Valley, the position of the fortress was difficult to attack due to the steepness of the hill on which it sits.  Originally dating to the early 13th century, the fortress fell into a ruined state by the late 18th century.

Austria is widely considered one of the world's most beautiful countries, so it's perhaps not surprising that it's being discovered by cinematically-oriented first person view (FPV) pilots to use as a canvas.  That's exactly what AirVuz contributor janwido did in this fantastic piece, which was shot flying over a lake known as Weissensee.  The long, narrow lake is located in the southern state of Carinthia in the Gailtal Alps.  This highly cinematic piece was picked for the AirVuz FPV Pilots to Watch list in June, 2020.
