Aleutian Islands, Alaska

The Aleutian Islands consist of a chain of more than 200 islands, including 57 submarine volcanoes. The islands have a small population, but the wildlife truly warrants a visit. The lush green tundra is home to thousands of different bird species waiting to be seen.

Imagine flying the Mavic Air 2 through the islands, capturing footage of the extraordinary views and fauna without disturbing the wildlife—that sounds like an adventure. 



Perrine Bridge, Idaho

Enjoy filming from great heights? The Perrine Bridge in Idaho is just where you need to take your drone. This famous bridge in the US has a towering height of 486 feet above the ground, crossing over Snake River Canyon. Take a nose-dive and shift into a last-minute ascent to really get your adrenaline pumping! 



Quake Lake, Montana

Lightweight, compact, and portable, the DJI Mini 2 is ideal for a backpacking trip to Quake Lake. This incredible site was created by an earthquake back in 1959, and now connects to the Madison River. Capture astronomical views by flying high above the lake to truly see the incredible structure made by mother nature. 

Northwest of Yellowstone National Park, Quake Lake has beautiful views, flora, and wildlife worth seeing.


Point Judith, Rhode Island

Soar down the scenic coastline and capture breathtaking footage of historic, towering lighthouses that have guided ships for decades. 

Are you an early bird explorer? Experience a stunning sunrise from the east coast and capture incredible footage, all with the help of your drone.

Key Largo

The Florida Keys are one of the best places to fly your drone. Fly over crystal clear water to see manatees, dolphins, and maybe a few sharks! With views of spectacular sunrises and sunsets, you can use your drone to take home a little piece of paradise.
As always, be wary of water! You wouldn’t want to lose your drone to the waves. 

If you’re planning your next drone flying adventure, we recommend these extraordinary locations. Take home incredible footage to gain bragging rights over your latest escapade!
