The Traveling Nerds brought a drone to CES -- here's the video

The best way to see CES is by drone flyover. Take a look.

With more than 2 million net square feet of exhibit space, this year's CES is bigger than ever. It's easy to feel overwhelmed, knowing there's always some exhibits you haven't seen. Unless, of course, you can get a drone's eye view with a flying camera.

Drone enthusiast Chris McBeth of photography startup Traveling Nerds launched his DJI Phantom quadcopter over the Las Vegas Convention Center to grab some panoramic perspectives of the world's largest consumer tech trade show.

The Phantom flew up nearly 500 feet outside the central and north halls, including a fly-by of the neighboring monorail track. Its GoPro Hero3 camera filmed the exhibitors in the parking lot and gives you a sense of the overall sprawl of CES 2014, where DJI is showing  its Phantom 2 Vision, an upgrade that comes with a built-in camera, as well as the eight-rotor S1000, which can carry a digital SLR camera.

Based in Scottsdale, Ariz., McBeth has also used his Phantom to film a promo video of installers working on rooftop solar panels. Check out some of his other drone videos on his Vimeo page.
