A volcano in Iceland called Fagradalsfjall had been dormant for 6,000 years. Then it broke a few days ago.
It turns out that a lot has changed in 6,000 years, such as the fact that we humans have drones. So, of course, drone pilots like Bjorn Steinbekk fly theirs straight into the molten lava.
Just watch; it’s worth 15 seconds of your time.
Somehow, the drone survived by flying right in front of chunks of lava spewing into the sky.
Good thing too, because this drone just happens to be the new expensive DJI FPV. I said the drone looked ‘silly fun’ in my announcement post, but even that’s more than I expected soon enough. I imagine that DJI will want to use these images in an advertisement any minute or another.
Do you still have a few seconds? Here is some more goodness of the soil is actually lava:
And four minutes? Here are some great flyovers overhead to soothing music.
Although Steinbekk says he thought he would never see his drone again after that close flyby in the first clip, “sometimes you just just let go and go,” he says in the description of one. of his other videos. Lucky for us he did.
