DIY Drone Footage Captures Glorious Aerial Shots of East London

By Gary Cutlack on at

The less talked about eastern bits of London have been shown off to their best extent by an amateur film-maker, who took a drone to the sky to capture shots of housing estates, barbecuing hipsters, modern developments and more. Turns out there's more to London than those three pubs on Dean Street.

The clip takes some rather large risks, including flying over a park packed with people, any of which could've been decapitated or at least mildly annoyed by having plastic rotors slapping their faces by a presumably unlicensed remote pilot. But if anything bad did happen it was masterfully edited away, leaving only some fantastic shots of Hackney and some of its surrounding developments. [YouTube via Metro]
