DroneRise – Fireworks, drones and drone surfing with Casey Neistat

Good morning, I hope all of our American readers have had a great 4th of July celebration. As usual, we have the headlines from yesterday, that you may have missed. One article is about drone flying and fireworks and the second one shows Casey Neistat surfing on New York’s East River behind a drone. Check it out!

Today’s video

Today’s video is short and sweet. It was captured by Ole C. Salomonsen and shows the beauty of Norway with the aurora borealis showing above and behind mountains in the background.

If you have a drone film that you would like to show on DroneDJ, send us an email with a link to your video on YouTube or Vimeo and provide us some background info.
