We’ve seen quite a few close encounters between drones and active volcanoes. Some drones survived, some didn’t, but this little DJI Mini 2 has quite a strange fate. It entered an active volcano and survived filming it without any trouble. But then, on its way back – a tree almost finished it off.
Most of us have been taught that sharks are scary and that we should fear them. But photographer Scott Fairchild shows us that sharks and humans can coexist in peace. He recently captured drone footage showing two surfers and a great white shark swimming near each other in perfect harmony.
We can’t dive down a waterfall, especially if it’s the tallest one in the world. But thanks to technology, we can see what it would be like from the safety of our home. Drone pilot Ellis van Jason sent his FPV drone down Angel Falls in Venezuela, the world’s tallest waterfall, and ended up with some impressive footage that he shares in his latest video.
While chilling on his balcony in Bondi Beach, Australia, drone pilot Matt Woods launched his drone to take some aerial footage. What he didn’t expect was seeing a spear fisherman and a shark lunging towards him. Woods called the lifeguards and helped them prevent what could have been a shark attack.
The eruption of Iceland’s Fagradalsfjall volcano attracted thousands of spectators this spring. Naturally, there were many photographers and filmmakers among them, so we’ve seen some epic footage and photos of the event. But Joey Helms’ aerial video is probably the closest we’ll ever see an active volcano. Joey flew his drone so close to the volcano that he literally crashed it into the exploding lava.
Every now and again, a piece of content comes up, whether it’s a photo project or video or whatever that just makes your jaw hit the floor. And you wonder, after you watch it, just how they could follow up from something so epic and amazing. One such piece of content was the video we saw recently from drone pilot Jay Christensen.
In it, he flew a drone through a bowling alley with such skill and finesse that it even caught the eye of James Gunn (who now wants him to come shoot on Guardians of the Galaxy 3). Well, now, he’s done it again, with an amazingly choreographed flight through the Mall of America. And it’s even more epic than the bowling alley!
I’ve heard of cyclones, I’ve heard of reindeer, but a reindeer cyclone? This is totally new to me. But it’s a thing, it looks incredible, and a drone pilot managed to capture this phenomenon from above. Science girl posted the video on her Twitter account, explaining what stands behind this unusual behavior.
I’m always amazed by well-made FPV drone videos, like this one or this one. So naturally, I really enjoyed it when I stumbled upon this footage that makes the ordinary look extraordinary. Right Up Our Alley shows a bowling alley from a point of view of a drone and a very skillful pilot!
I love seeing well-executed stunts and amazing drone footage. So, why don’t we have both? Stunt school from France, Campus Univers Cascades, has recently shared a mind-blowing video showing off its students’ skills and some crazy drone footage. Sit back and enjoy the intense and stunning four minutes of this pretty epic video.
