Flying drones: the most impressive videos of 2014 – The invasion of the drones has already begun. But not all of them are hostile as the ones used by the U.S. Army. On the contrary, the commercial flying drones can be fantastic video operators, nosy observers and can also make us laugh a lot.
The models on the market are now hundreds. Anyone can buy a cheap one for as low as $ 30. The affordability of the flying drones is one of the reasons that turned them into the digital gadget of the year. According to unofficial sources, Amazon sells more than 10 thousand of them every month.
Piloting a flying drone is easy, but not as much as you could think. The FAA records a 40% monthly increase in accidents caused by these objects and their unwary pilots. And in fact the flying drones can give us beautiful images and emotions, but also laughter, with videos that quickly become viral.
We have collected below the most viral videos made by flying drones so far.
