A Photographer Used a Drone to Shoot a Video of Dallas, and It's Awesome
This video is already up on Reddit , Frontburner , and Centraltrack , but it's worth a look. The video was shot by a guy named Brian Aiken using a DJI Phantom quadcopter -- basically a camera-equipped drone. You'd think that might make people nervous, but Aiken says that wasn't the case.
"No one stopped me," he writes on Vimeo. "People usually are too interested in the chopper to give me any grief."
It's a breathtaking video. Takes me back to my days as a kid taking those stomach-churning helicopter rides at the Omni Theater in Fort Worth.
