This Quadcopter Video of Niagara Is Way Better Than a Tightrope

It’s crazy hot out there this week, but this gorgeous video shot from a remote-control helicopter hovering over Niagara Falls lets you (nearly) feel the cool, refreshing spray on your sweaty overheated face.

YouTuber questpact rigged a GoPro Hero3 to his DJI Phantom quadcopter to get this shot, his entry in DJI’s Phantom Video Contest. The straight-down view of the falls is unlike any perspective you could get from the riverside overlook or a tourist boat, and combined with the serene soundtrack (probably more enjoyable than the deafening roar of six million cubic feet of water rushing by every minute) the result gives you a five minute reprieve of nature and peacefulness.

Now if only we could perfect the quadcopter belt, we’d be able to experience views like this in person, without having to learn to balance on a temperamental tightrope.
