A Hawk Attacks A Quadcopter
BY Alan Perlman5 March 2015
Quadcopter pilot Christopher Schmidt was in for a big surprise while flying his drone over a park in Cambridge, Massachussets. A red-tailed hawk suddenly appeared, circled the quadcopter, and then launched a full-scale attack on it. The speed of the hawk in this video is incredible, and gives a great look into how these beautiful birds stalk their prey. The hawk was not harmed, thankfully, and neither was Schmidt’s Phantom FC40.
