Helicopter Drone Captures 360° View of Gulf Oil Spill

Aerial photography company perspectiveAerials has captured incredible 360° footage of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The team launched their custom built Canon 5D Mark II aerial drone (see video two in the gallery below for a demonstration) from their boat in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico:

"Although we are able to hand launch our drones in very confined space, we've never done this from the back of a very unstable pitching and rolling boat...in rain and drizzle. Over $10,000 in equipment can be lost in an instant! Between boat movement and gulf winds this was an extreme challenge!"

The end result is truly extraordinary. Click through for the 360° aerial interactive view.
