432 Drone Quadcopter Explores Volcanic Eruption
Shaun O'Callaghan

Shaun O’Callaghan recently uploaded this amazing video of a drone exploring the eruption of  Mount Yasur, a volcano in Vanuatu. His setup combined a DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter with a GoPro camera. The video gives an intimate look at the ash and lava being ejected, which can reach temperatures of 1,200 degrees Celsius. Amazingly, the drone was sturdy enough not to succumb to the extreme temperatures and flying debris.
