A DJI Phantom 2 drone and a GoPro Hero 3 made the trip into Iceland’s Bardarbunga volcano head on — and the GoPro didn’t make it.
Gizmodo reports, DJI’s Eric Cheng and an Icelandic photographer named Ragnar Th. Sigurdsson “drove as close as they could to the eruption — and when authorities stopped their car.”
The bonus of the DJI’s Phantom 2 is that it “has a failsafe mechanism that directs the drone to return to the user once it’s beyond range.”
Check out the video below and more photos of the melted GoPro over on Gizmodo:
