Sometimes you have to make sacrifices to get that perfect shot. Gardar Olafsson did just that when his drone flew over the Fagradalsfjall volcano in Iceland as it began erupting. While he captured breathtaking footage, the drone itself melted just a little from the intense heat. The drone is still kind of usable, but the upside is we can safely experience what it's like to fly over a volcano from the comfort of our homes.

We've said it a lot here at RTM, but we just LOVE drone footage of beautiful landscapes. And when it comes to beautiful landscapes, it's hard to beat a place like Angel Falls in Venezuela.

Drone Over Yugoslavia & Super Tiny Switzerland

Please enable JavaScript to watch this video. Who's up for a trip to Yugoslavia? The area looks abandoned but it is still quite beautiful. Thanks to the drone footage from RED-FPV, we don't have to leave our homes to explore this location. If Yugoslavia isn't your thing, then what about Switzerland? Pirmin Henseler used some a fancy photography trick called tilt-shift and time-lapse footage to make it seem like the whole country had been miniaturized.

Elephants In Trouble

Elephants In Trouble

This first elephant is in trouble because it's the one causing the trouble. It marched into a village in India and began ripping through the wall of a building. To retaliate, the residents threw firecrackers at the poor creature in an attempt to scare it off. Eventually, it wandered away. Over at Oldonyiro Community Conservancy in Kenya, three helpless elephants were trapped in mud and couldn't get out on their own. Rescuers hauled each elephant out of the mud with a tractor. After some time on solid ground, each elephant was able to recover and stand up on its own. View Now

Where’s My Human?! & Golden Retriever Gets Taste Of His Own Medicine

We all like to experiment with new looks from time to time, but that doesn't mean everyone is always a fan. When this dog (who we suspect is actually a horse in disguise) saw his human with straight hair instead of curly, he didn't quite know what to make of it. So the horse/dog just left the room feeling confused. It's okay, buddy, she's still your human. View Now
