Well, we better get used to it, they are everywhere now. It's confusing to talk about a drone in this forum.
According to the head of the research field, Rember Martínez Baca, the tiny ship was modified by the archaeological team of the Ministry of Culture
to fly over the area.
"It's a 'drone' modified by us, it flies over the structures and takes an approximately 10 pictures per second,".
He further explained that the job is to "control the final product in a three-dimensional reconstruction" of what is in the field. It is in this way
that they can save twice the time.
The director of the project located within the sports complex of the Videna, Fernando Herrera Garcia said there are 13 graves found belonging to the
Lima Culture (200-700 AD) and Yschma (1100-1400 AD), although two of them has not yet been determined origin.

Herrera said in an interview with EFE that was excavated approximately 40% of the Tupac Amaru huaca B and has used technology including aerial
"What we're doing now is working, take the aerial photo and we will see the projection wall and we follow (...) This has allowed us to know the
projection wall, knowing where to go, where are the hits," he said.
Wow imagine that. Drone technology has so much potential, other than mounting guns on them and sending them to war. They are perfect for this type of
thing. Imagine how much we could do with the technologies we have if we didn't just convert it all to war machines. But where's the money in that,
This is really good to see, and hopefully we'll begin to see more of it...hopefully.
