Default Carlton Complex Fire 2014

A quick vid of the 250,000+ acres (400 square miles) of destruction last month, shot from a drone. Not bad!

It's sad, but demonstrates a cool technology that could be used for Wildfire mapping. Just don't fly a Drone near a wildfire that has active air opps taking place, doing so can bring an entire air operation over a wildfire to a stop, meaning homes could be lost(the Drone pilot wouldn't want that) and the operator could face penalties if temporary flight restrictions have been issued over a Wildfire.
