Every Fireworks Show Should Have A Quadcopter Cameraman

Fireworks look awesome from the ground, but have you ever wished you could be inside them? Probably not because that’s verifiably insane, but this quadcopter footage shows off how great the view is from up there.

Filming fireworks with a quadcopter isn’t an entirely novel idea, but we’ve never seen one fly quite as close to the action as this DJI Phantom did. It even manages to manoeuvre itself inside the range of some of those exploding spheres without ever getting hit.

It’s just a shame the video quality isn’t slightly better, but at least that leaves a good excuse for these guys to try it again. [Gasper C via Reddit]
