Hawk vs Drone! Find Out Which One Wins During A Mid-Air Attack On Unmanned Quadcopter/ Drone Cam [Video]

A drone equipped with a camera captures its own demise as a hawk attacks the device in mid-air. Drone operator Chris Schmidt was flying his machine at a park in Massachusetts on Wednesday when the red-tailed hawk swooped in for the kill. The bird was not injured (and the machine was unharmed) in the ordeal.

Chris describes the moment:

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

It’s nice to see that nature can still win at times.
