When DJI’s Phantom multirotor aerial vehicle was released ready-to-roll with a GoPro camera mount, its developers couldn’t resist starting a video contest. This led to one adventurous contestant setting the little drone to work filming the scenic flows of the great Niagara Falls.
The famous landmark is shared between the state of New York and Ontario, Canada along the border. Niagara is simply the collective name for three distinct waterfalls. One of these, Horseshoe Falls, is counted as the most powerful waterfall in North America. At its highest vertical drop of more that 160 feet, Niagara Falls boasts the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world. Occasionally, people throw themselves over the falls in a barrel. This is not recommended–but watching this breathtaking footage taken from the aerial vehicle is.
