Watch a brave drone get dramatically close to an erupting volcano

DJI has just shown off one of the most spectacular drone videos we’ve ever seen of an erupting volcano, so close it resulted in a melted a GoPro camera. The pilot, Eric Chang, captured the footage at the Bardabunga volcanic system in < strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>Iceland using an off-the-shelf DJI Phantom 2 drone equipped with a GoPro Hero 3+ camera. After an eleven hour journey over nearly impassable terrain, his team arrived to within 2 km of the volcano, which was spewing lava as high as 150m (460 feet) in the air.
