A pretty cool 15 second video of a volcano taken by a drone:

He almost lost that Drone,,, this is great and apparently it can be viewed close up on foot if you get to Iceland. A lot of photographers are heading that way....

According to this, you can no longer get too close because of the gasses:

This new video is well worth the view. The operator actually damaged one of his drones in the process of capturing it:

I think that volcanic eruptions canyons and glacier lagoons are what drones are made of.  It's a shame they weren't available when I visited the Eyjafjallajökull eruption in 2010.

I'm not allowed to try to pronounce that -- doctors orders!

It wouldn't be that hard to make a heat shield to protect the drones , all that is needed is a reflective layer which could be made from thin stainless steel sitting below the vital parts of the drone with an air gap between the shield and the drone itself. This would cut out around 90% of the heat flux. The blades I would assume would cool from rotation.
