A drone by any other name

This was captured by a radio controlled aircraft with an onboard camera over the Fourth of July weekend. A drone by any other name.

    And based on the stability of the footage, it’s a drone with a gimbal. So we’re talking about $1300-$1500 minimum that he sent up into the middle of a bunch of explosions. A little bold, that.

    I believe the FAA has ruled: If you fly it by remote control, observing it from the ground, it’s a model aircraft. If you look out from an onboard camera, it’s a drone.

    Hard to say how stable the camera actually is, they do amazing things in post these days. I’ve seen apparently rock solid video out of a gopro on a fixed mount on a quadcopter . The raw footage was juddering like woah before digital stabilization.

    But more importantly, what was that musical piece? I know I’ve heard it before, but can’t quite place it.
