Insane Dive Off World’s Tallest Waterfall Shot by FPV Drone

Filmmaker Ellis van Jason has published a video where he takes his first-person-view (FPV) drone straight over the edge of Angel Falls, the tallest waterfall in the world. Without this type of drone, the jaw-dropping view would otherwise be impossible to capture quite like this.

If you watched the news or were connected to the internet the first week of June, chances are good that you have seen a video of a drone crashing into an erupting volcano.

Cinematic Racing Drone Footage Shot While Flying Up a Mountain

It's only four days into 2017, and already we have a contender for the most cinematic drone footage of the year. This short clip, shot by FPV drone user Gab707, would be right at home at the beginning of a Lord of the Rings movie. Frankly, it looks more like CGI than drone footage.
