Drone used to film erupting volcano in Iceland

Several negative stories have been flying around about drones, including a drone being shot down, the National Park Service banning drones in all parks and areas it manages, a tourist crashing a drone into Yellowstone National Park, drones being banned over the Appalachian Trail and in parks in Utah and Colorado and a drone reported flying over an NFL game.

But the potential for the greatness of drones was on display this week. DJI, which calls itself the world leader in camera drones/quadcopters, sent a crew to Iceland to use a drone to film an erupting volcano, While crew members had to keep their distance from the volcano—mostly for safety reasons—the drone was able to get close enough to catch some amazing video.
