Watch this stunning drone video showcasing beautiful Detroit


DETROIT – See Detroit in beautiful 4K from the perspective of a drone.

Trevor Cutts, a 24-year-old creative who grew up in South Africa and New York, posted a stunning video showing Detroit from the air.

“My parents recently moved to northern Michigan and that gave me the first opportunity to visit Detroit,” Cutts said. “I was honestly blown away by the city and I will never forget my first trips on the Grand River and Michigan Avenue. There is so much beauty, art and soul in the D!”

Cutts graduated from North Carolina-Chapel Hill and when he got his drone that summer, he immediately began work on his first project – documenting Detroit by air.

“I met so many creative, friendly people creating the video that I finally decided to move to Detroit,” said Cutts.

The video shows footage from across the city with breathtaking angles and mirroring tricks that give the perspective a completely fantastic feel.

“I realized that the breathtaking angles a drone allows could be ‘triggered’ by symmetry,” Cutts said. “I loved the new life that mirror-processed footage took on, especially the Hart Plaza segment in the center.”

It lost its wheels once, but it is starting to fly.

This video is the result of a week of scouting and a week of filming in Detroit with my Yuneec Q500 4K drone.
