Amsterdam from the air with a drone

Amsterdam from the air (with a drone) in 4K

Amsterdam is not only the capital of The Netherlands, it is also the city that is popular worldwide and receives more than a million tourists every year. Most Dutch people are familiar with the city, at least from the street or from a grassy field. From the air, it's a completely different story – you've probably never seen Amsterdam from that perspective! This video shows the city from a whole new perspective. The video was shot with a small DJI Mavic Mini drone by the 'Dutch Drone Derps', whoever that might be?

Amsterdam is banned for drones

Juicy detail: it is strictly prohibited to fly a drone over large parts of the city. For those who are familiar with drones and the regulations that come with it: yes it is true, this video simply cannot be made in a legal way. You can see that the drone does not go very high and in that sense does not pose a danger to air traffic – it is still surprising that this video is simply on YouTube, so we will not be surprised if at some point it is taken offline by the authorities.

Must have for drone pilots
EU Drone License | Drone Class
€ 99,00

Since January 1, 2021, it is mandatory for private individuals and companies to obtain an EU drone license. You can realize this quickly and easily through the online courses with exams from Drone Class. This allows you to fly in a responsible manner.

The 'EU drone driving license' is also accepted outside the EU in most cases, so it is advisable to have it with you at all times when you take your drone into the air, anywhere in the world.
