Drone gets real close to the 4th of July fireworks

Every year, we see many amazing drone photos and videos of fireworks. From high up in the sky, you get a whole new perspective, and you can get a lot closer to the action. Maybe a little to close at times! Check out this photo that was posted on social media from a drone that gets real close to the 4th of July fireworks.

Drone gets real close to the 4th of July fireworks

Check out this photo that was posted on social media by A. Kaplan, who said:

“A bit close for comfort but drone survived without issues.”

The photo came straight from his DJI Mavic Air 2 as it must have been really close to the exploding 4th of July fireworks, judging by the image.

This is easily the most impressive drone photo I have seen of fireworks recently. Perfectly positioned and I don’t think the drone could have been much closer without incurring damage. Well done and I’m glad that the drone survived ok.

Keep in mind that when you are taking photos or videos of 4th of July fireworks the FAA rules still apply, especially the following:

  • Don’t fly over people
  • Don’t fly past 30 minutes after sunset (civil twilight)
  • Don’t fly over 400 feet

And, you might lose your drone if you get too close to the action.
