Huangling and DJI partner to launch aerial photography base for UAS enthusiasts



Huangling, which is a countryside destination in Wuyuan County, Jiangxi Province, China, has partnered with DJI to launch an aerial photography base in the village.

The airspace around the village will be open to UAS enthusiasts, giving them the opportunity to use their systems for video-taking and photography purposes.

“We are thrilled to work with DJI to give visitors an exciting new way to view and appreciate the beauty of Huangling,” says Wu Xiangyang, CEO of Wuyuan Rural Culture Development Co., Ltd.

“The view from the sky will be a stunning angle for visitors to experience the village where quaint, color-topped Hui-style houses are dotted across the mountainous landscape.”

The launch of this base comes at the perfect time, being that September to November is the best time to discover the village's unique view of shaiqiu, which is a time when “bamboo baskets filled with colorful produce such as chili peppers and chrysanthemum flowers are sun-dried over roofs and in racks.” This creates a “breathtaking layered vista of vibrant colors against Hui-style homes with their black roof tiles and white walls.”

Huangling has been working to connect its cultural heritage and landscape with technological innovation, so the village has also introduced virtual reality (VR) viewing of its springtime vistas, giving visitors a 3D panoramic view of the “sensational golden sea of rapeseed flower blossoms and historic houses via real-time drone feed.”

“High-tech innovations offer us the opportunity to showcase our cultural heritage and ancient traditions, such as shaiqiu, as never-seen-before spectacles,” Wu says.

“We will continue to incorporate new cutting-edge technologies to introduce new ways of visiting and experiencing our incredible Chinese village.”
