Flickering lights, check. Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas,” check. Drone, check. Holiday cheer, check. In what is surely one of, if not, the most stunning Christmas spectacles we’ve seen this holiday season, the residents of Yucaipa, California recently came together to rig an entire neighborhood with synchronized lights and tunes. And, the result is pretty brilliant.
Resident Jeff Maxey recently uploaded a series of videos showcasing the impressive effort of his neighborhood using no other than a drone to capture a bird’s-eye view of the celebration.
Indeed, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen UAVs used to showcase holiday festivities. Last year, Bay Area filmmaker shared footage of San Francisco landmarks from the air — like the Ferry Building, Embarcadero Center, and Coit Tower — all decked out in lights.
Well, Santa hats off to you, folks! Perhaps this should be added to our list of awesome ways drones are being used today…
