Drone investigates crop circles in Russia

New aerial footage has been released showing an intricate pattern of circles in a field in Russia.
Up until relatively recently researchers looking to get a bird's eye view of a crop circle needed to take to the skies in a plane or a helicopter, but now thanks to the advent of remote-controlled drones it has become easier than ever to see what a formation looks like from the air.

This week a group of enthusiasts took advantage of this method to obtain footage of an impressive crop circle formation that had appeared in the foothills of the Western Caucasus Mountains.
The pattern consisted of six circles measuring up to 42ft across and was discovered on Tuesday by a local farmer who maintains that it definitely hadn't been there the night before.

The footage taken by the drone as it scoured the area can be viewed below.

Kids with more time than sense. If I was that farmer I would be really mad. That is money out of his pocket.

I dont know what else could make them but in this case the imperfections are evident and i would definitely say man made.

No crop circle is void of imperfections. Actually, most researchers feel the more perfect a circle is the more likely someone with rope, boards, and measurements were used. While I want to believe, any circle that crosses tram lines voids the possibility of finding the entry/exit point.

While I want to believe, any circle that crosses tram lines voids the possibility of finding the entry/exit point. Yeah I agree as most crop circles has unfettered access from the tram lines and those are always suspect in my mind. I watched a documentary on crop circles and a scientist explained the difference between what he believed were real crop circles as opposed to fake. The real crop circles the nodules in the wheat...

All crop circles are made made. The claim that there are differences in the nodules is based on an article that was published in a peer reviewed journal. The paper was shown to flawed and the claims of differences in the nodules has not stood the scrutiny of other scientists. The nodule issue has been shown to be simply the result of mechanical damage and the water content of the plants.

Drones just let us see what people did quicker than waiting for a plane to fly overhead.
