Welcome to some weekend fun and entertainment with drones. We spend a lot of time scouring the web for news, information and more on all the great drones around the globe. In our travels, we encounter some fun and funny stuff, and we want to start sharing that with you. Today we will be taking a look at drones flying through fireworks. (Which is difficult to do legally in the U.S., make sure you follow the rules if you plan to try this for yourself.)
No matter what the title says, we refer to this as our Good Idea / Bad Idea series, we just figured a new name was in order, suggestions welcome. Let it be known that we do not endorse or recommend anything we will post here, sort of a “do not try this at home” vibe, but somebody tried it, it was interesting or funny and here it is.
Drones in fireworks
Next up in our series, let’s explore some fun with drones flying through and around fireworks.
Before we begin, let’s get a few things out of the way:
Drone legal and safety
This video from Insight Media takes a drone through the breathtaking view of fireworks. Fireworks from the ground look great as it is, but taking a drone through the fireworks makes it even better. This is still highly dangerous for everyone involved, we do not recommend you try it, but it sure looks great!
This video was a submission to GoPro back in 2014 for the 4th of July fireworks celebration. The view is pretty impressive from the eye of a drone. As you can see the drone was hit by an exploding firework causing it to lose balance for a few seconds.
Good idea / bad idea wrap up
As always, we officially recommend you do not try this at home. We want you to always fly safe, to obey all drone laws, but also to have some fun. Of course, if you do try this, please share the details, it’s always fun to see some shenanigans.
If you think this entire series is a bad idea, let us know in the comments below. Otherwise, enjoy the crazy antics caught on film.
