Drones are literally flying off the shelves. The popularity of drones and the associated technologies [video cameras] has taken many by surprise. In fact new legislation [in many jurisdictions] has had to be introduced to try and set some limitations on how and when they can be used. As with many technologies how they end up being used is sometimes not the original intent of the inventor or manufacturer.
As a platform for video drones have provided a much simpler, cheaper and more readily available method of capturing footage that would otherwise be extremely expensive or even impossible to capture. As the example from Java Post Productions of the new Måmawêyatitån Centre below illustrates, a drones eye view provides an entirely different perspective of the work being done.
