The footage was shot with a GoPro camera mounted on a Phantom quadcopter
A few days ago, youtube user questpact uploaded this stunning footage of Niagara Falls. The waterfall was caught on camera from an aerial perspective, and the resulting video is absolutely amazing.The Huffington Post informs us that, in order to shoot this video, questpact used a GoPro camera and a DJI Innovations quadcopter.
Now, I'm guessing everybody knows what a camera is. A quadcopter, on the other hand, sounds like something Sigourney Weaver would use to go hunting for aliens.
Rest assured, that is not the case. It is merely a small radio-controlled aircraft. Otherwise put, just think of it as a miniature helicopter.
Despite being relatively new on the web, the video already has well over 170,000 views. Almost everybody agrees it is stunning to say the least, and that it is probably a matter of hours until it goes viral.
