Urs Hölzle took fellow Google exec Vic Gundotra‘s quadcopter to Stanford University last weekend for a spot of filming.

We’ve covered drone videos in the past – this aerial montage of New York is awe-inspiring – but it’s always interesting to see how Google’s top brass are experimenting (or just playing around) with the technology.

The DJI Phantom 2 Vision quadcopter offers a novel perspective of the iconic campus, and the final edit was put together automatically via Auto-Awesome Movies in Google+. It’s a novel example of the platform’s smart video-editing tool, and highlights how what would have been lifeless stock footage can now be transformed into a neat montage for sharing on the Web.
