    Quite impressive.

    I wonder why 472 people disliked it.

    Drones are evil. And it's not the things they are sometimes used for, it's the name. That's why I downvote any video of UAVs, hexacopters, kids with model airplanes, the Borg, Starcraft, male honey bees or bagpipes. Especially videos with bagpipes. Those drones are the embodiment of the sounds of evil! :p

    Youtube is 75% 14 year olds with issues.

    That was awesome; some spectacular shots there I wonder if the fireworks could damage the drone, though?

    According to the video description, "The quad was not damaged."

    The music, perhaps? (It's not bad music, but not what I would have chosen.)

    Now if he had the city at his back, he could film the blasts on a solid black background, and edited it for a nice space battle scene--if you can remove that pesky smoke in post.

    Now for a drone into a tornado...

    I loved this! I think the music matched it perfectly. I know the piece as, 'Time to Say Goodbye'. I'm thinking this was sung by Andrea Bocelli. I have a recording of him and Sarah Brightman singing it as a duet. Lovley song! Sarah Brightman also sang 'Time to Say Goodbye' on America's Got Talent. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7-TF_4x-ME&feature=kp

    Why? It didn't stop us from seeing "smoke" in space battle scenes in a variety of scifi productions.

    Because it's stupid and not only threatens public safety but also stuff like this is what ruins ones ability to fly a drone without regulation.

    Regardless of the whole 'drone debate', you gotta admit the footage is pretty spectacular.
