A video posted on YouTube this week shows off a rare view of downtown Annapolis.

The video starts with the camera's lens touching grass from the front lawn of St. John's College, then zooms about a hundred feet into the sky. The height affords a dramatic, panoramic view of the downtown skyline.

A combination of devices were used to capture the video—a DJI Phantom quadricopter and a GoPro camera.

Quadricopters, remote controlled helicopters also commonly called drones, have been a popular way to show off unique views of landscapes and big events since they hit the public market years ago.

Interested in more great views? Check out this combination quadricopter plus fish-eye lens camera footage of the Maryland World War II Memorial in Annapolis.
