DroneRise – Sicily, Crater Lake, DJI Phantom 4 police drone and FAA approval for flying BLOS

Good morning, today we have a beautiful drone film showing off the largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily. Furthermore, we have news on increased enforcement of the no-drone zone in  National Park, Crater Lake as well as a DJI Phantom 4 used by the Lodi, CA police and FAA approval to fly beyond line-of-sight for a Nevada drone company.

Yesterday’s headlines

Today’s video

The largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily, captured by Lumen Art Studio with a drone. Apart from the beauty of the island what stood out to me were the beautiful colors in this short video. The short film was shot with a DJI Phantom 3, although a GH4 and 70-200 2.8 with the 2x Extender was used for the last shot.

The video shows the following locations on the island, Sant’Alfio, Agira, Troina, Cornino, San Vito lo Capo, Syracusa, Mount Etna, Agritento, Valle dei Templi.
