One of the exciting things that has simultaneously sprung up in this GoPro era of video is drone technology – in this case quad-copters. Flown by a single pilot  and sometimes a second operator to control the on-board camera, these tools have exploded on the consumer market in the past few years thanks to a company called DJI. With a stabilizing gimbal one of these copters can help produce some really interesting shots. Here is a collection of shots that my friend Chris and I created using a variety of DJI copters and a GoPro Hero3 Black.
