Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has tantalized shoppers with the prospect of package delivery by drones in a few years. But flying machines are already delivering dramatic protest footage in Thailand.

Anti-government protesters seeking the ouster of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra have clashed with security forces in Bangkok, leaving at least three people dead.

Local news outlets are using drones to capture wide-angle aerial views of the protests.

The YouTube videos below show water cannon and tear gas flying toward protesters as a camera-equipped drone whizzes overhead, seemingly very close to the action.
