This Is What Downtown Chicago Looks Like From A Drone

Whether we like it or not, drones are here to stay and they're changing the way we see our world. Often cited as a surveillance tool, drones can be useful in many other ways, including real estate photography. The folks over at Creative Aerial Media have been flying a multi-copter around Chicago's lakefront to make videos of several landmarks, including Navy Pier, Montrose Harbor and Burnham Harbor. Due to safety reasons, the drones fly at a max height of 500 feet, however sweeping views of the city can easily be achieved at such heights. More videos can be found on Creative Aerial Media's Vimeo page.
