Explore Alaskan ice caves with this GoPro-equipped quadcopter

Using a ‘quadcopter’ drone and a GoPro camera, a film crew from Los Angeles has captured breathtaking views of the ice caves that wind their way through Alaska’s Mendenhall Glacier. The rapid melting of this glacier means that similar footage could be unattainable in just a few years. “For me it was the raw beauty and power of the glacier that really inspired me to film the glacier,” Christopher Carson, a producer for Firefight Films, told the Alaska Dispatch.
