The Last Dronie


Shot on a DJI Phantom 4, chrisxgxc uses his skills and mighty imagination to bring us what a dronie would look like if the world was taken over by zombies. A master of visual effects, Chris says this is how he would break out of a horde of zombies - mapping his escape route with a drone!  Chris was a winner at the first annual Drone Video Awards with his classic "Cardboard Cadet"; he repeated the feat the following year when this video was chosen as the Winner in the Dronie category for the 2nd Annual Drone Video Awards.

Female pilot wrenee is known for her epic dronie locations - hence her nickname, "Queen of the Dronie". This video by the powerhouse pilot takes the cake with her smooth flying above the trees while she lies below on a thin bridge. Shot above the Tenorio Volcano National Park in the Central American nation of Costa Rica, this video is a wonderful example of how to take the perfect top-down dronie. "Rio Celeste, Costa Rica Dronie" was nominated as a Finalist in the Dronie category for the second annual AirVuz Drone Video Awards.

Set in the wine country of Italy's Tuscany region in the west-central part of the country, this dronie by contributor Druno is very unique for its epic "reveal". The video begins with a shot of the pilot sitting in a chair near a table.  Then it reveals his companion sitting on a couch pouring a glass of wine.  In one continuous shot, it flies out the window, providing a magnificent shot of the fabled Tuscan countryside.   This video was voted the winner in the Dronie category for the second annual Drone Video Awards. 


Spaceship Dronie

Brent De B...

Brent De Bleser is at it again with one fantastic dronie! Flying up what he calls a "spaceship" you'll feel the vertigo-type effect the cylinder he's lying in gives you. This video is a perfect example of a top-down dronie: flying straight up with the subject below the drone to reveal a very unique location. This video is a Drone Video Awards Nominee in our Dronie category. 


Dronie from an Island in the South of Norway


Shooting from a tiny islet in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Western Norway, top contributor and drone pilot hopenorway casts his drone up into the air and gives it a big smile.  There are many ways to take a good dronie, but what makes this one baffling is that although he's surrounded by sea water, there's not one drop of water on his knickers. It's one of the reasons why this terrific video was nominated as a Finalist in the Dronies category for the second annual AirVuz Drone Video Awards.
