The folks at drone company DJI recently trekked to Iceland to capture the massive Bardarbunga Volcano erupting, and the result is nothing short of amazing.
The team used Phantom 2 quadcopter drones with GoPro cameras attached, and DJI’s Lightbridge wireless high-definition remote video system to capture an exploding magma caldera, which would be too dangerous to approach with a traditional manned aircraft. The trick, I guess, is flying without frying! 🙂
Just as an aside; one of the comments posted in response to this video includes the following… 8220;Seems like Drones are really taking off in the photo and movie industry“. Not sure if the pun was intended or not, either way it is a good one!
