These remote-controlled multi-rotor aircraft can capture amazing footage—and are fast becoming today’s must-have photo accessories

High-end units are being used in sports photography, real estate, law enforcement, and even major motion pictures. Drones are some of the most exciting new photographic tools in recent history. And flying these multi-rotor, radio-controlled aircraft is almost as thrilling as the images they can produce.
