Over the last few years, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have increasingly embedded in everyday life all around China. The duties of these civil drones range from agriculture, transportation to entertainment. The commercial sector relies on unmanned platforms for a variety of services, including aerial photography, crop monitoring, rescuing, delivering and performances. The wide use of drones not only makes life more convenient, but also broadens the imagination of Chinese people towards the coming future.[Photo/Xinhua]
