Nobody likes to lose a drone, especially with the price. But if you have to lose one, going down in a blaze of glory is always best.

This is exactly what happened to filmmaker Joey Helms’ DJI FPV drone in Iceland, when he decided to send it on a mission to explore Fagradalsfjall, a volcano on Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula. Unfortunately, the drone got a little too close to the lava spurts and ended up going down in a blaze of glory.

The footage is spectacular!
