Welcome to some weekend fun and entertainment with drones. We spend a lot of time scouring the web for news, information and more on all the great drones around the globe. In our travels, we encounter some fun and funny stuff, and we want to start sharing that with you. Today we will be taking a look at trains from above.

No matter what the title says, we refer to this as our Good Idea / Bad Idea series, we just figured a new name was in order, suggestions welcome. Let it be known that we do not endorse or recommend anything we will post here, sort of a “do not try this at home” vibe, but somebody tried it, it was interesting or funny and here it is.

Trains from above

Next up in our series, let’s explore some fun with drones getting some amazing shots of trains do what they do best.

Before we begin, let’s get a few things out of the way:
Drone legal and safety

Risky idea

This video by Delay in Block Productions follows a few Amtrak trains in the middle of Jackson, MI. It’s great to be able to see trains from a different perspective and what they are transporting. This video is not the safest as it comes quite close to other people and even a light pole.

Amazing idea

This video by Train Video Pro takes train videos to the next level by placing it in a beautiful location as well as a great sunrise to go along with it. The long shadows, colors of the land and the cinematic shots make this a truly amazing video.

Good idea / bad idea wrap up

As always, we officially recommend you do not try this at home. We want you to always fly safe, to obey all drone laws, but also to have some fun. Of course, if you do try this, please share the details, it’s always fun to see some shenanigans.

If you think this entire series is a bad idea, let us know in the comments below. Otherwise, enjoy the crazy antics caught on film.
