One thing I will say about drones, they certainly do make it easy and effective to get some amazing footage at an extraordinary reasonable cost compared to (privacy concerns not withstanding).
To that end, we’ve compiled a list of awesome drone videos showing off a wide scope of Los Angeles landmarks, neighborhoods, and natural geographic beauty.
I think it’ll give you an appreciation for the sheer diversity of L.A. and maybe even you inspire to check out a part of our city you’ve yet to explore.
Oh, and if you have a suggestion to add to the list then jump to the conclusion of the article to contact us and shoot us a tip for a video to add. We’ll keep adding them as long as you keep suggesting them.
