DJI’s Eric Cheng flew two Phantom quadcopters to capture a recent eruption at Iceland’s Bardabunga Volcano. Cheng got so close that the GoPro’s Casing melted but he salvaged the SD card and then we get this amazing footage to watch.
Bardarbunga (Anglophone spelling) is a stratovolcano located under Vatnajökull, Iceland’s most extensive glacier. The second highest mountain in Iceland, 2,009 metres (6,591 ft) above sea level, Bárðarbunga is also part of a volcanic system that is approximately 200 kilometres (120 mi) long and 25 kilometres (16 mi) wide.
