Downtown Los Angeles is one of those things seen either from a distance, or from in the middle of it. Filmmaker Ian Wood gives us this stylish quadcopter-eyed view.
With DTLA's fascinating architectural and art history, drawing contributions from lots of different times and points of view, this is a visual feast.
While just a year or two ago, flying a quadrotor by remote to capture stunning aerial shots was the purview of specialists, now the DJI Phantom Aerial UAV Drone Quadcopter for GoPro is available to everyone. Just because anyone can, doesn't mean everyone will do it well. Game on.
Drones, drones, drones...

A remoted-controlled quad-rotor drone follows climbers ascending Pakistan’s 20,623 foot Trango Tower. WIth accesible gear like this, actual mountain climbing expeditions can look as cinematic and gorgeous as theatrical ones.
Quadrotors, micro-drones, all other sorts of flying robots are terrifyingly amazing. And this video studying and visualizing flight paths is gorgeous. The look like vertebrae . Eery.
