YouTube creators, Ivan Miranda and Tom Stanton went to work and first created a DIY light stick, and a second version was then mounted on to a drone. The resulting light painted images are pretty amazing as you will see in the videos below. We have seen other creations that were light-painted in the sky with a drone before as well as other drone photography works.

We know that DJI drones, including the Mavic 2, can handle a lot of abuse. We have seen plenty of videos in which the aircraft are doused with water, flown into trees, flown through whale snot and even submerged in fresh water. Many times the drones come out unscathed. Not this time, however. Clark Little flew his DJI Mavic 2 close to the breaking waves to capture some amazing footage, but the salty spray from 20-foot waves crashing on the shore of Hawaii proves to be more than even the DJI Mavic 2 can handle.

Photographer Reuben Wu has been using drones in very creative ways to light up mountains and display signs in the air. This time he traveled to Pastoruri in South America to photograph glaciers that were lit up at night. Reuben uses a drone outfitted with Lume Cubes to light up the scenery. This results in very dramatic photos of glaciers like you’ve never seen before.

Back in March, we already saw other work from this very talented photographer, Reuben Wu. Reuben uses drones to create artworks in the sky. The first time we saw Reuben Wu’s work here on DroneDJ, he used a drone to create halos over rock formations. This time he uses them to create illuminated or glowing symbols in the sky. The drone is outfitted with a lighting rig using Lume Cubes to draw symbols such as a plus sign, a square and a triangle from narrow straight lines. The artwork is created right above the water creating stunning abstract images.
