Hungaro Ex...

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, which covers a land area of about 1.5k square km or around 600 square mi.  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.  

Big Island and Kauai


Hawaii: The Big Island and Kauai


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.  Top AirVuz contributor and drone pilot TheDroneTrip put together this marvelous 4K piece from the Aloha State, featuring two of the islands: Kaua'i, known as the Garden Island, and the appropriately named Big Island, known for its Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Drone Tour of the Big Island


Hawaii, The Big Island


Hawaii's Big Island is appropriately named - the easternmost island of the archipelago, which bears the name of the USA's 50th state, covers over 10k square km (around 4k square mi.), 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.  Top content creator and drone pilot Th3venture and his companion spent a week on this volcanic island with a DJI Phantom 4 and a GoPro, producing one BIG travel video.

Kauai's Na Pali Coast


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, the name for Kaui's northwestern coastline, top contributor and drone pilot brianeastMedia treats us to a spectacular aerial view of this marvelous island, which is geologically the oldest of major islands in the Hawaiian archipelago.

Kilauea Volcano


Tears of Pele


In the Hawaiian religion, Pele is the goddess of fire, volcanoes, and the creator of the Hawaiian Islands themselves. In this piece, top contributor haussmannvisuals captures the essence of Pele via the erupting 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.

Oahu's Ko'olau Mountains


When the Mountains are Calling...

Hungaro Ex...

The Ko'olau Mountains sit on the eastern side of Oahu, the most populous island of USA state of Hawaii and the home of Honolulu, the state's principal city.  The highest peak in the mountains is about 1k meters (about 3k ft) above sea level, a figure more impressive when considering the very short distance from the peak to the Pacific shore.  Contributor and pilot Hungaro used a drone to create this stunning aerial video of these spectacular mountains and the Pacific Coast against which they are set.  

Big Island Highlights


This is Hawaii


Take in these gorgeous aerial views of the Big Island of Hawaii, compliments of AirVuz contributor and drone pilot SolidCaptures.  The video opens with a shot of the Waipi'o Valley, a spectacular area on the island's northeastern coast.  At the 1:10 mark, you'll see the nearby Waiulili Falls, which empties directly into the ocean.  Other highlights in the video include the area around South Point (Ka Lae), the southernmost tip of the island (and also the southernmost spot in the USA) and some breathtaking whale watching shots.

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).  Sometimes called the Valley Isle, Maui was the second Hawaiian island to develop a large tourism trade, following the lead of Oahu.  This stunning drone video from top contributor and pilot 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. 

DVOW Finalist: Proposal in Kauai


Kauai, Hawaii - We're Engaged!


Top contributor th3venture created this truly memorable video from a trip to Hawaii where he was engaged to his beloved.  The proposal took place atop a hill on the Na Pali Coast, a wilderness area in the northwestern part of the island.  You can see the moment where he pops the question at around the 2:00 mark in the video.  It's hard to imagine a more beautiful place for anything let alone committing to a lifetime together; not surprisingly, she said "yes"! This video was a DVOW nominee in April 2019.

Around the Big Island



Reuben Lan...

Contributor Reuben Landon put together this beautiful drone video from the island of Hawaii, the largest and southeasternmost of the Pacific archipelago that is the USA's 50th state.  The locations featured include the following: Akaka Falls, which lies within a state park on the island's northern side; the "Warm Ponds" (sometimes called "Hot Ponds") on the eastern side; the off-grid Cocowasi retreat; Rainbow Falls in Hilo; Pahoa, at the island's eastern tip; and Kona on the western side.

Kahakuloa Head is a promontory which is situated 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 and drone pilot 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.  

Lanai's Shipwreck Beach


Shipwreck Beach Lanai

iDrone Haw...

Lanai is the sixth-largest of the islands which make up the archipelago and US state of Hawaii.  It's situated just south of Moloka'i and west of Maui.  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 and pilot 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.

The island of Hawaii is formed from five separate volcanoes that erupted out of the Pacific Ocean floor; in the native Hawaiian version of history, this occurred with the help of Pele, the goddess of fire.  The largest of these is Mt. Kilauea, which is an infant in geological terms - less than 300k years old.  While not particularly high (its peak altitude is about 1.25k meters or around 4.1k ft.), it is extremely active.  For evidence of the last point, check out this drone video of the volcano in the area of Pahoa by Reuben Langdon.

The Hawaiian island of Maui is one of the USA's top beach destinations.  It's perhaps not surprising then that this bit of tropical paradise has also captured the attention of first person view (FPV) pilots as a travel destination.  Witness this fanastic FPV piece by top AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot Ewalt_FPV.  Opening with a great shot skimming along the coast, the video ends with a shot of the house where he's staying.  This video was selected for the AirVuz FPV Pilots to Watch list in July of 2020.  

Kiteboarding in Oahu


Kiteboarding in Oahu

Kiteboarding is a challenging actions sport that requires considerable strength and balance.  Similarly, it's incredibly difficult to safely film kiteboarders by drone.   With speeds that can easily exceed 60 km/hr (over 40 mph), keeping the kite and kiteboarders in frame requires a great deal of skill on the part of the drone operator.  All reasons to appreciate this excellent drone video  by former Drone Video of the Week Winner Seven Roads Media, who filmed some kiteboarders cruising the coast of Hawaii's island of Oahu.

AirVuz contributor mozaerial used a DJI Mini 3 drone to create this excellent drone video from fabled Waikiki Beach in Hawaii.  Even as Hawaii's "other" islands have become increasingly popular, Waikiki Beach on the island of Oahu continues to be seen as one of the world's most iconic beaches.  Considered the birthplace of modern surfing, Waikiki Beach is located roughly halfway between downtown Honolulu and Diamond Head to its southeast, on the southern shore of Hawaii's most populous island.

Hawaii: Majestic


This video of Hawaii by contributor johnapurdy fulfills the promise of its title: Majestic.  It opens with a beautiful shot of the famously torquoise waters of the Aloha State.  From there you will see some of the volcanic mountains, verdant valleys, and gushing waterfalls of this bit of paradise in the Central Pacific Ocean.  The highlight of the video is at the :55 mark; there is a slo-mo sequence of a wave crashing over some giant rocks that are lined up in a semi-circle transaction.
