DroneRise video of today

Today’s video is from Kjell Redal and shows drone footage of a Rocky Mountain college town:

Fly over a Rocky Mountain college town known for its expansive views, hyper-active residents, socks in Chacos, and bikes more expensive than the cars they’re carried on. I had a week near the end of my summer to showcase my hometown from a fresh perspective using my Phantom drone. Early mornings and sweaty hikes provided great light, awesome locations and high stoke. It’s exhilarating to see how a place I know well can look so different from the air. ©Kjell Redal 2016

What is DroneRise?

Every weekday morning at 6am sharp we will post a short re-cap of yesterday’s drone news. We will also include a video that shows the amazing footage that a drone and a capable drone pilot (and video editor) can produce.
