In this piece, haussmannvisuals captures the essence of Pele via the errupting Kilauea Volcano off the Big Island with his DJI Phantom 4 Pro and DJI Mavic Pro.  Like a true professional, he waited three years for this moment and made sure to fly in a legal fly zone.  His hard work paid off in this spectacular video, which was nominated for the Drone Video of the Week in late 2018.


Kauai | Untouched Beauty


Get an aerial glimpse into the wild beauty of the northernmost Hawaiian island of Kauai.  A popular location for filming movies and TV shows, it is often referred to as the "Garden Island" due to its ancient rainforests that have grown thick with tropical plants and trees throughout time.  In this drone video from contributor tomnoske, you'll get a sense of Kauai's remoteness in contrast with the Aloha State's more well known and densely populated islands.

Lucky We Live Oahu

Hungaro Explorer

Oahu is by far the largest of the Hawaiian Islands in population, and is also the location of the state's only major city, Honolulu.  While the island has become largely urbanized, contributor Hungaro shows us some of the less-populated parts of this Pacific Ocean island.  The video will serve to reminding you of how Hawaii came to get such a hold on the imagination of travelers from across the mainland United States and indeed from around the world.  


Hawaï : Big Island & Kauai [4K]


The eight islands comprising the American state of Hawaii offer a broad range of geography that includes volcanoes, mountains, beaches, waterfalls, and lush green landscapes, and each has its own unique lure to locals and guests.  Videographer TheDroneTrip felt the pull towards Kaua'i, known as the Garden Island, and the appropriately named Big Island, known for its Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, to make this incredible 4k video of the Aloha State.




In this video, top contributor Haussmannvisuals treats us to bird's eye views of three of the main islands of Hawaii: Kauai, Maui, and Hawaii (aka the Big Island).  He captured the footage using two drones: a DJI Phantom 4 Pro and a Mavic Pro.  He encountered some unusually strong winds during his time there, which makes the resulting video all the more impressive.  Feast your eyes on these marvelous bird's eye views of America's 50th state! 


Maui 4K

West Maui

iDrone Hawaii

Following the arc of the Hawaiian islands eastwards, Maui is the next to last island, before the island of Hawaii (also known as the Big Island).  Maui was the second Hawaiian island to develop a large tourism trade, following the lead of Oahu.  This stunning drone video from iDrone Aerials will show you why this island paradise in the Aloha State has became such a hit with travelers (and more recently, drone pilots) from around the world. 


Aerial Views of the Kalalau Trail Along the Na Pali Coast of Kauai


Kauai is the westernmost of the main islands of the Hawaiian archipelago.  It has been developed more recently than Oahu and Maui, and its pristine scenery has made it a favored location for filming feature-length movies.  Hiking along the Kalalau Trail along the Na Pali Coast, contributor brianeastMedia treats us to a spectacular aerial view of this marvelous island, which is geologically the oldest of major islands in the Hawaiian archipelago.


Hawaii, The Big Island


Hawaii's Big Island is big - the easternmost island of the archipelago, which bears the name of the USA's 50th state, has roughly twice the land area of the rest of the islands, combined.  That means more beaches, rainforests, waterfalls, surfing, and everything else the Hawaiian islands have to offer.  Contributor Th3venture and his companion spent a week on this volcanic island with a DJI Phantom 4 and a GoPro, producing one BIG travel video.  


Sailing in Kaneohe bay


Kaneohe is the largest bay in the Hawaiian islands, sitting on the south shore of Oahu.  Because of the protection provided by the bay, it's become a major center of sailing, as well as other water sports activities.  In this video, contributor Skyhighhawaii uses a drone to create an unforgettable video of a catamaran sailing across the crystal waters of the bay.  The picture of the tilted craft sailing along the amazing light green sea is almost hypnotizing.


Life is a Hyperlapse


Contributor Videosophy is known for highly creative drone videos, both of his home state of Hawaii and other spots around the world to which he travels.  He is also quite skilled at advanced post-production editing techniques.  In this video, he combines spectacular drone footage of Hawaii with some amazing hyperlapse editing, creating a stunning visual feast of the Aloha State.  Viewer beware: his love of this magical island paradise is contagious.  


Kahakuloa Head Maui

iDrone Hawaii

Kahakuloa Head sits in a relatively remote spot on the western side of the island of Maui in the Hawaiian Islands.  The road which runs through the area is extremely narrow, scaring off many would be visitors.  While these fears may be justified, contributor iDrone Hawaii makes a compelling visual case for taking the risk with this spectacular bird's eye view of this Pacific Ocean paradise, the second most populous island in America's 50th state.

Hawaiki nui vaa 2017

Tahiti Fly Shoot

The Polynesian people who initially populated Hawaii were some of the earth's first seagoing peoples, and (as with other seagoing cultures) the key was having the right type of boat.  In this case, it was a boat style called a Va'a, which is an outrigger type canoe that has proven its seaworthiness over the centuries.  Tahiti Fly Shoot flew over the 2017 Hawaiki Nui Va'a race and created this spectacular drone video of the event, which is the largest such outrigger canoe event in the world.    


Shipwreck Beach Lanai

iDrone Hawaii

Lanai is the smallest of the publicly accessible Hawaiian Islands.  The location of the island creates strong winds and treacherous Pacific Ocean currents which have caused many shipwrecks over the years.  In this video, contributor iDrone Hawaii uses a DJI Phantom 4 drone to fly over a wreck off of Lanai's Shipwreck Beach, so called because of the number of wrecks which inhabit the sea bottom off the island's shores.
