  1. BEIGE COLORED OLIVE SKINNED ARAB CAUCASOIDS FROM PALESTINE BUILT THE PYRAMIDS N SHIET, DATS WHY DA MIDDLE EAST IZ FULL OF PYRAMIDS, NOT INNER AFRICA, EGYPTIAN CULTURE STARTED IN IRAQ!! NOT SUDAN/ETHIOPIA, THE REDDISH BROWN SOMALIANS AND ETHIOPIANS AND ERITREANS WHO ARE IDENTICAL TO THE EGYPTIANS ARE NOT MIXED AFRICAN BLACK PEOPLE, THEY PURE ARE ARAB CAUCASIANS EVEN THOUGH THEY LOOK NOTHING LIKE US, AND DON'T HAVE OUR BEIGE SKIN COLOUR AND ARE INSTEAD TROPICAL REDDISH BROWN, LETS ACT LIKE THE EGYPTIANS WERE BEIGE INSTEAD OF BROWN AND IGNORE THE AFROID FEATURES AND THE ANCIENT GREEK WRITERS SAYING THEY WERE ETHIOPIANS, ARABS HAVE BEEN IN EGYPT FROM THE BEGINNING WE WEREN'T INVADERS WHO GOT THERE IN 630's AD, ARAB POWER!! ALLAHUAKBAR!!!!!!

  2. Listen Afrocentric fools. The only western african tribe that has a possible connection to Nubia is Hausa and Fulani. The rest of you Niger-congo speakers had no connection whats-so ever. Also the African american are the worst of them all, your ancestors was slaves not nubians. The rest of Horn of Africa has a possible connection to Nubia, by the land of punt strecthing Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia and South Arabia. Thats why we look so similar and are in the cushitic race. If you are trying to claim something that isnt yours and your not from any of these countries or tribes then you are a imposter!

  3. You should talk to some ROV guys about navigating. Might have some ideas about hardware and software to keep yourself orientated. Why can't you put a laser rangefinder on the camera?

  4. You can get better drone footage with a $400 buck drone off the shelf at any electronics store. Poor quality for a professional project

  5. Trying to wash down the story. Truth is it all started there and went down the Nile! • Which in their case the river runs south to north. Culture developed South of Kemet in Nubia!

  6. Fantastic video, shame about the commentary. Especially in the beginning, talking about not knowing how far from these pyramids you were flying and the chance of bumping into them!!

  7. To much useless commentary in the beginning and in general that had nothing to do with the dig or even the interesting things the drone (mini-helicopter? stfu) found. No your place camera boy. You are to record the interesting things. Not try and become them yourself.

  8. Thanks fro sharing I was lucky to spend over 2 years working in Northern Africa and had the time to travel many areas. Fond memories of a 2 month trip from Wadi Halfa to Alexandria. You shared a different perspective that is truely amazing.

  9. USELESS VID, ABOUT A BOY AND HIS TOY ! hey little boy, change the title of your shit vid to. me me me, its all about me… or you could be a man and redo the vid to match the title. wow wouldn't that be amazing. somebody telling the truth for once…

  10. Aaaaaaah the pyramids of Nubia where Obratouvishar lived head of a very special nubian tribe. The pyramids are not tombs but very old schoolbuildings, they date back from about 3000 year and were build the way the Original egyptians build their schoolbuildings .The sphynx was the oldest of all schoolbuildings and the head of the phinx is from the founder of the buildings and head of the angient egyptians.On some hyroglives you find drawings from very very dark black Nubian man and one of them stoot out together with the head of the egyptians and that black Nubian man is Obratouvishar.The knolledge that the egyptians had that time was very interesting because the reson they build these pyramids just had one simple meaning namley each pyramid is a part of the human brain, the truth is the human brain is not build up in strings look like spagetty but in trianglelar particles (but not many people know that! not even today) You may think that i have lost my mind but with God's willing i can tell you much much more even the explenation about siris and Osiris because that too has some to do with the pyramids or must i say brain schools.

  11. Black people were at the peak of greatness when they lived on the banks of the Nile. The Nile flows 4000 miles into Africa, and stops in Uganda . The Egyptians came down the Nile. They got their resources from inner central east Africa. And when they started mixing in North Africa with Arabs and white people, they thought what they were mixed with made them better than the original black ones.

    Which is what they still do today…
