Drone videos have matured to the point where you could reasonably use a quadcopter and a GoPro camera to film a low-budget chase scene.

This high-speed footage from Xhover operator and YouTube user StingersSwarm shows just how fast a commercial quadcopter can go while neatly dodging in and out of buildings and over treetops. 

We look forward to someone using this technology to film high-speed chases for their home videos. Level up, guys.
