The Welsh island of Anglesey is forever associated with copper mining because of the ore extracted from Parys Mountain, which you'll see in this fascinating drone video by Simon Whittaker.  Parys had been a source of the red metal as long as 4,000 years ago but was essentially dormant for several millennia before being "rediscovered" in the late 1700s.  With the more advanced extraction and refining techniques that were available by then, Parys became (for a time) the world's largest copper mine.

Top AirVuz contributor and pilot Nathan Jermy took a bit of a gamble with his drone to create this epic dronie flying out of a church in Wales, the region which covers a western portion of the island of Great Britain.  When you watch the video, you will see why this was a tough shot.  What you can't see made it even tougher - 25 mph winds, which challenge the ability of any drone to maintain the desired course with so little room for error.  You say, “do it for the ‘gram,” we say “do it for the dronie.”

Elan Valley // Little Escape // Episode 13 // Wales // Drone 4K

Joshua Pau...

Located in Powys, Wales the Elan Valley is a river valley that covers around 180 square km (around 70 square mi.) of lake and countryside in the region sometimes referred to as Mid Wales.  Over 80% of the Elan Valley has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, meaning it is protected under UK preservation laws.  Incredibly peaceful, with still waters and lush, green forestry surrounding it, you can see why pilot Joshua Paul Gardner wanted to fly his drone above the valley in this fabulous aerial video. 

FPV: Dinorwic Quarry, Gwynedd


Dinorwic Quarry - Wales from FPV perspective on a gloomy day


Explore the industrial history of Wales in this fantastic first person view (FPV) drone video by AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot fpvshenanigans.  He was able to fly over the Dinorwic Quarry in Gwynedd, which at one point was the world's second-largest slate quarry.  Prior to its closure in 1969, it covered over a square mile (about three square km) and produced over 100k tons of the material annually.  At its peak, the mining operations here employed about 3,000 men.  It's now home to the National Slate Museum.  

Snowdonia from Above


Snowdon from the Air Cinematic Drone Video


AirVuz contributor Dr0ne Werks used a DJI Mini 2 to create this excellent drone video from the Snowdonia region of Wales in the United Kingdom.  Named for Mt. Snowdon, the highest peak in Wales, most of Snowdonia is encompassed in Snowdonia National Park, the third-oldest in the UK, which covers portions of Counties Gwynedd and Conwy.   The mountains here are some of the oldest in the world, and the glaciation which occurred during the most recent Ice Age created the distinctive-looking landscape you'll see in the video.  

Wales by FPV


Wales with a FPV drone | Cruising at zero altitude - Cinematic FPV


Top AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) drone pilot GosHawkFPV takes us on a epic cruise along the coast of Wales in this fantastic video.  The title is accurate - he is cruising at an altitude so low you can just about smell the saltwater.  You'll also ride along just inches above the rocky coastline.  It makes for some mesmerizing visuals, and demonstrates some very impressive FPV piloting skills.  No wonder this video was chosen by the AirVuz staff as a pick for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in April of 2021.  

Around Anglesey Island


The Isle of Anglesey


Explore the island of Anglesey in the UK region of Wales in this video by Colsam458, which was created using both drone and ground camera footage.  The first stop is the Menai Suspension Bridge, which connects the island with the Welsh mainland, followed by the 13th century Beaumaris Castle, a bit to the northeast.  Around the 2:00 mark, you'll see Penmon Point, at the eastern tip of the island, and the offshore Trwyn Du Lighthouse.  Other highlights include St. Cwyfan's Church, on the tidal island of Cribinau, and South Stack Lighthouse.

Drone Views of Tenby


Tenby, Pembrokeshire - UK


The town of Tenby lies in Pembrokeshire, a county of southeastern Wales in the United Kingdom.  Tenby played an important role in Welsh history during the centuries-long struggles between Wales and England, although its significance declined after the English Civil War in the 17th century. Contributor Aerial.Vantage.UK used a DJI Phantom 4 drone to create a beautiful aerial video about this seaside town on Carmarthen Bay.  It includes footage of Tenby Castle, a 13th century fortification which sits on a small promontory.
