Using drones to film fireworks seems to be becoming a new trend, and could possibly raise legal questions in the near future.

Obvious concerns involve the air spaces these objects are allowed to fly, as well as the dangerous explosions that could result if a drone collided with a firework.

However, safety and legal concerns aside, drones really do provide us a unique new look at fireworks.

Want to know how fireworks look from point-blank range in the sky? The videos below capture the experience.
