Marathon Dam. Drone as DJI Mavic

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Check out this drone video of one of Greece's Marathon Dam, compliments of DRONEAS GR.  It's a gravity dam on the Charadros River just a few km/mi west of its namesake town and about a half hour drive northeast of Athens.  Opened in 1929, the project's primary purpose was to supply drinking water to Athens, which at the time was being inundated with refugees from Turkey.  The dam was seen to be a symbol both for the modernization of Greece as well as to commemorate the great Greek victory over Persia at the Battle of Marathon in 490 BC.
