Plenty of people use drones for aerial video. You can’t fly a drones everywhere though. Airpup is a kite balloon that can stay up for days to capture video without a drone. You can fly this in national parks and other areas above the 400′ limit. Doesn’t make a noise either.
Airpup can fly in winds up to 20mph and lift payloads up to 500g. When done, you can pack it into a backpack.
