Look up in the sky! It’s a bird ... it’s a plane, it’s ... ?

A small winged contraption buzzed overhead as thousands of Chabad rabbis from around the world gathered in front of Lubavitch World Headquarters—at 770 Eastern Parkway in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y.—for their annual group portrait as part of the Kinus Hashluchim, the International Conference of Chabad-Lubavitch Emissaries.

Neither bird nor plane, it was a remote-operated quadcopter drone from CJ Studios in Brooklyn that videoed the group, taking some snapshots and providing a drone’s-eye view of the surrounding neighborhood.

It took Chabad’s use of the latest technology to communicate good things to new heights—quite literally.
