Chicago Hyperlapse 4K - Mavic 2 Pro


This epic video by Majestic shows two things: (1) the skyline of Chicago is tough to beat and (2) the new DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone is one amazing aerial video platform, with video quality that holds up well against much more expensive models.  Majestic uses some of the built in hyperlapse functionality of the Mavic 2 to produce some of the best 4k footage of the Chicago skyline anywhere.  The video includes spectacular footage of  the city's skyscrapers, the Lake Michigan waterfront, and more.

AirVuz contributor Gianlo uses his DJI Mavic Pro drone to give us an unforgettable (and DVA nominated) 60 second aerial tour of the skyline of Chicago, the city which can lay credible claim for having invented the skyscraper.  The video provides epic views of the Windy City's magnificent skyline, still dominated by the 108 story Willis Tower.  Standing over 440 meters (just over 1.4k ft.) tall, this behemoth was born as Sears Tower in 1974 and enjoyed a 25 year reign as the world's tallest skyscraper.

Chicago: An Aerial Tour


Drone_America takes us on this terrific aerial tour over the Windy City of Chicago in this amazing drone video.  The footage of all of the city's major highlights is fantastic, but what really sets this video apart is the captioning.  You'll not only see places like Navy Pier, Grant Park, Hancock Center, and the various bridges of the Chicago River, but they are helpfully labeled as such with non-intrusive captioning.  Watch it to gain a better understanding of how the Midwest's largest city "works".

Bill Drones

A small drone like the DJI Mavic Pro is the perfect travel accompaniment for a trip to a city like Chicago.  The Loop and the Lake Michigan lakefront are not in FAA no fly zones, so capturing great aerial footage with this compact drone is quite feasible on a weekend trip.  Contributor Bill Drones did just that, treating us to this amazing aerial tour, with shots of Buckingham Fountain, Navy Pier, Chicago Harbor, and epic skyscrapers!
