Phantom Drone Captures Some Incredible Footage of an Erupting Volcano

Drones (we’re talking about the quadcopter kind, not the military kind) are pretty incredible devices… especially when you toss a camera on them. They tend to be a bit expensive though, starting at around $500 for a lower-level one and going all the way up to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
