A Mexican drone pilot used six different drones over a five-year span to create a winning drone video.

Tarsicio Sañudo won the weekly AirVuz Drone Video of the Week contest (and the $1,000 prize) with his video “MEXICO A TRIP OF 5 YEARS.” The aerial compilation features more than 30 different locations throughout Mexico and showcases the country’s coastlines, festivals, skylines and natural wonders. Sañudo used six different DJI drones — the Phantom 1, Phantom 2, F450, Inspire 1, Mavic Pro and Phantom 4 Pro — to capture his winning film.

AirVuz.com, the world’s leading drone video and photography sharing platform, launched the “Drone Video of the Week” contest in which one content creator will be chosen for the weekly USD$1,000 prize. All drone videos uploaded to AirVuz.com are eligible to win. The contest began April 2.

The winning video received the most votes in a public poll and beat out four other finalists: “The 10 Most Beautiful Places to Visit in Sri Lanka,” “Mystic Iceland,” “My First Year of Filmmaking” and “EPIC Lofoten Islands in Winter.” Finalists were chosen based on a variety of factors, including quality of footage, originality, music selection and editing techniques.

The contest continues again this week, with another USD$1,000 up for grabs for drone pilots from all over the world. This week’s contest runs from April 23 through 11:59 p.m. CT on April 30th. Finalists from last week’s contests were also announced on Tuesday, April 24th and can be found here.

The Drone Video of the Week contest follows the success of the inaugural AirVuz Drone Video Awards, which selected the best drone videos and photos of 2017. Voters chose winners in 13 categories from a total of more than 33,000 videos.
