Mr Helms explained on his YouTube channel: “FPV drones are notorious for crashing, it is part of the hobby.
“So in an effort to get a unique vantage point and perspective into the crater, we flew this remarkably capable drone as close to the lava and river and caldera as possible.
“One of it turned out to be its very last flight.”
Luckily for us, the drone managed to record HD footage of the fountaining lava right up until the moment of its incineration.
The video then repeats in slow motion and at the last moment cuts
out as the drone is fried, and a “video signal lost” warning appears on the screen.
