I am always in the search for great aerial videos created by drone enthusiasts around the world. The great thing about them is that they don’t need to have great post production, color grading or any other “gimmicks”. They don’t need to be extra professional either, any of us can can catch amazing moments, perspectives, simply great shots.

This one I have stumbled across today is great because it has real drama. NZVideoGuy was traveling on a supposedly pleasant ferry ride between South and North Island of New Zealand which is by the way a really spectacular ride to my opinion.

It consists of two videos. The first one is almost uneventful, but still great footage, nice to see the boat from up above. The second one is the one that will have you bite your nails. If you only want to see the drama, you can skip to about 4.30!

My guess that the issue might have been caused by some of the magnetic disturbance from the radio transmission or radar of the ferry. It seems to be going a way after a while, so maybe there was some radio communication that ended after all. Great drone video with all its natural beauties and excitement.

    You only got back because you finally fell behind the boat. I wondered the whole time why you didn’t go behind the boat where the wind is blocked.

      Good point Ron. Don’t know. Important: this is not our video :).
