Drone v. Hawk (Hawk Wins)

October 9, 2014 at 6:05 PM Leave a comment

We humans think we’re so cool but maybe we’ve got a thing or two coming (love this):

On Oct 8th, I was flying my quadcopter at Magazine Beach Park in Cambridge, when a hawk decided he wasn’t too happy with my invasion of his airspace…

As far as I could tell, the hawk came out unscathed, and having defeated his prey, was happy to retreat. (As soon as he flew at me, I throttled down the props to try to minimize any harm to the bird.) The quadcopter came out unscathed as well.
