I recently started to bring my drone along to any social gathering I can where its legal. (i.e. during the day and not within 30 meters of any buildings, vehicles and non-related people) Initially, it was to give all the kids a laugh but I’ve found I can get amazing video footage and stills from angles that just aren’t possible when your feet are firmly set on the ground.
Group shots are great fun, I can actually be in them now (albeit looking at the drone control).
Modern quad-copters have nice built-in Gimbals that smooth out your footage.
