I bet you thought drones were just for shooting missiles at people from the stratosphere and spying on drug lords. Well you’re wrong! They’re for shooting missiles at people from the stratosphere, and spying on drug lords, AND capturing really rad video footage of fireworks. Take a look at this video of Independence Day fireworks over Nashville. There are literally “bombs bursting in air,” and while I haven’t actually checked, I strongly suspect that our flag is still there.
This video was filmed with a GoPro mounted on a remote controlled drone. This tactic is increasingly being used to capture some truly epic aerial footage. It’s quieter, cheaper and less disruptive that using a helicopter to film aerial shots and it’s opened up a whole new world to filmmakers and YouTubers alike.
