Drone And GoPro Hero 3 Take To The Sky For Fireworks Show And It's Pretty Cool

Now here’s a use for drones that we can surely all get behind: Filming a fireworks display from inside the beautiful, explosive mayhem.

One Jos Stiglingh sent up a DJI Phantom 2 drone with a GoPro Hero 3 silver strapped to it and filmed a fireworks show, and the resulting video is approximately as marvelous as you’d expect it to be. We see different aerial shells exploding mid-air with a variety of colors and effects, and the camera manages to get shots from below, above, and right in the middle.

The best shots are when the camera pans around a firework in mid-burst. The soundtrack really enhances the experience, incidentally--a juxtaposition of powerful explosions and smooth, pretty operatic singing.

Also, we’re pretty sure that around 2:28 the drone is almost blown out of the sky.

This is one of the best uses I've seen for a personal drone so far.

Thanks for the post Seth.
