Photographer uses DJI Phantom 3 drone to shoot latest footage of Tesla Gigafactory in Nevada

According to an Engadget report, a DJI Phantom 3 drone was recently used by digital content creator and aerial videographer Matthew Roberts to shoot the latest footage of electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla Motors' Gigafactory in Nevada.

The huge Tesla Gigafactory - which, upon completion, will have the biggest footprint of any building of the world - is located nearly 20 miles east of Reno in Nevada. After constructing the Gigafactory for two years, Tesla commenced the production of lithium ion electric-car batteries at the facility in July this year.

The Gigafactory's planned annual battery production capacity is 35 gigawatt-hours (GWh). As per Tesla CEO Elon Musk, nearly 10,000 people will be easily employed at the Gigafactory in the next 3-4 years.

About the latest footage of the Tesla Gigafactory, the Engadget report has revealed that Roberts used a DJI Phantom 3 drone which soared above the massive facility to capture the footage in 4K.

With the Tesla Gigafactory still far from completion, the footage captured by Roberts shows frames of buildings that extend out from those parts of the Gigafactory in which construction has been completed by Tesla. The facility's completed portions already cover an area of approximately 5.5 million square feet.
