Drones or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have provided some spectacular video that used to be accessible to filmmakers if they had access to a helicopter. Now with smaller UAVs and high-quality cameras, such as those from GoPro, even hobbyists can produce incredible looking images – such as the $24 million yacht that caught on fire a few weeks ago.
This video – which was posted in February but recently came to the forefront during the July 4th weekend – shows an amazing perspective on a fireworks show. The video – which was taken using a GoPro attached to a DJI Phantom 2 – shows a fireworks show up close from above, alongside and even inside the explosions. It is truly an incredible perspective. Even though it could be a little risky to send your $1300 camera UAV into an area surrounded by explosions, the drone and the camera were unharmed.
