The Burj Khalifa in Dubai is the tallest building in the world, so of course, trying to fly a Phantom drone to the top of it is a great idea. These guys take their DJI Phantom 1 with a GoPro Hero 3+ (see: drone accessories) and attempt the huge climb, and wind up reaching an astounding height of 2,425 feet, right alongside the 124th floor of the building. The surrounding views are incredible, and this sets the bar for future attempts to climb this monstrous building with a drone.
