Sure, 4th of July fireworks from the ground-level are great; however, nothing quite compares to the eye-level view of a drone.
Just this past weekend, Nashville entrepreneur Robert Hartline decided to capture the city’s Independence Day fireworks show from the air using a drone-and-camera apparatus as part of a promotion for a new venture, USA TODAY reports.
This isn’t the first time fireworks have been captured from up-above using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). In May, YouTuber Jos Stiglingh mounted a GoPro Hero 3 Silver camera onto a DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter to provide his audience with a firsthand look at a stunning airborne spectacle in West Palm Beach, Florida. Paired with tenor Andrea Bocelli’s “Con Te Partiro,” the video has now been viewed over 6.5 million times.
What’s even more amazing is that neither ‘copter was damaged in the process.
Besides the recreational filming of fireworks, UAVs are set to soar across an array of industries, ranging from real estate and aerial photography to action sports and Hollywood.
