Here are 4 tremendous top drone videos of Mother Nature at its most beautiful.
Below we have a birds eye view of Montenegro, known as the pearl of the Mediterranean, an ice cave adventure with the sun glinting off the glaciers, the mighty Mountains of Scotland Devil’s Ridge, Ben Nevis and more. The final drone video is of the Niagara Falls which needs no introduction.
With the right quadcopter equipment and some practice, drones are taking some really awesome photographic shots.
A drone allows you to get camera shot better than any helicopter. I love the slow movement of the drone to capture these images. The quality and stability of the camera is so important. GoPro cameras are top quality and used in these quadcopter videos. The camera stability is gained through using a Gimbal.
4 Top Drone Videos Of Mother Nature
These drone cinematographers are real artists. OK. Lets start watching some beautiful quadcopter videos.
Kotor in Montenegro By Drone
Kotor is a coastal town in Montenegro. It is located in a secluded part of the Gulf of Kotor. The old Mediterranean port of Kotor is surrounded by fortifications built during the Venetian period. With the nearly overhanging limestone cliffs of Orjen and Lovćen, Kotor and its surrounding area form an impressive and picturesque Mediterranean landscape.
This video has been recorded using Phantom 450 drone with DJI NAZA V2 Autopilot System. The Camera is a GoPro 3 edition using a Zenmuse Gimbal to stabilize the camera motion.
Stunning Ice Caves By Drone Video
This drone pilot sets out his quadcopter to explore some beautiful ice caves. From the deepest depths of the caves to the sunlight glinting off the glaciers, this drone video will leave you in awe. The slow and careful movement of the drone pilot captures these ice caves beautifully.
Drone Over Rugged Scottish Mountains
John Duncan who filmed this quadcopter wanted to show how beautiful Scotland is. John certainly accomplished his goal.
These are scenes of tremendous natural beauty. The places also come with great names such as Quairang, Old man of Storr, Buachaille Etive Mor, Sgurr a’Mhaim, Devil’s Ridge, Ben Nevis, Forth Rail Bridge, Dunbar, Rannoch Moor, Wallace Monument, Edinburgh, Glenfinnan Viaduct, and the Kelpies.
John used a a DJI Phantom 2 with a GoPro 3+ camera. Now, this is a stunning video. However the below video is a few years old now and it has some barrel fisheye distortion in it. The latest top drones all have 4k UHD cameras and are specifically designed for aerial filming. So no more barrel distortion.
Fab Drone View Over The Niagara Falls
This video captures the falls from great angles. We see the falls wonderful horse shoe shape and the vastness of the water flowing over the edge. I love the angle where the drone captures the falls and the road running alongside. Magnificent.
One big note is that you require special approval from the FAA to fly any UAVs over the Niagara Falls. You can’t just appear there with your quadcopter and off you go.
Some of the equipment used in this top video is a DJI Phantom drone, a GoPro HERO camera and the Arris CM2000 v2 Brushless Gimbal.
