Earlier this month was the third annual New York Drone Film Festival. The festival showcased some of the best and most innovative work in the world of drone video. It used to be in the world of video that if you wanted an aerial shot, you had to do it from a plane or helicopter. Now, you can get the same shots just using a little drone -- just make sure you're doing everything within the FAA regulations.

Check out some footage from the festival where the latest drone technology was on display; from tiny quadcopters to large drone balloons. Then check out some of the winners from this year's festival below.
