I wonder if the drone was a virgin... smiley-laughing001

EDIT: I'm guessing the air's density directly above the eruption was insufficient to keep the drone aloft.



It is what it is.

The fun part was getting the SD card out of it.

Based on the final footage I think it more likely that it was the temperature of the rather dense lava splattering onto the drone that was the culprit.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Possibly, but perhaps the reason the drone was flying low enough to be splattered was the absence of insufficient lift.

Or maybe they willingly sacrificed the drone in the interest of science - that would be MUCH cooler!

Ok. Who didn't expect to see a little bit of Hollywood style screen melt?

Awesome video, but surprised the drone could live stream HD video back.

Headed out there in a few weeks! Son is buying a new drone for the trip.

I hadn't thought about drone sounds. Are they all that loud?

Pretty much, when the mic is inches way from the props, though larger props mitigate the noise somewhat.

But that could have been fixed in post.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
