DJI Phantom quadcopter? Check. GoPro Hero 3 video camera? Check. Paracosm, the latest chillwave record from Washed Out? Check.

You might usually find production studio Fiction shooting promotional videos for apps or the occasional tomato farm for Publix, but its latest project is a personal experiment in shooting video with drones. "Fiction Product Test 003" is three-and-a-half minutes of stunning fields, vistas, and lakes, all experienced firsthand from the underside of a quadcopter. The vehicle's movement is exceptionally graceful and fluid, which makes for some truly breathtaking moving shots of Hawaii, Florida, Ireland, Isle of Man, and Scotland. Grab a pina colada, your favorite drone, and enjoy.
