Re: Raven takes out RC plane cool video

I agree 100% that birds will go after our planes (it has happened to one of my planes) but I still think that the image quality and difference between the tail of the plane and the "bird" indicates a fake. I am not a video graphics expert but it just does not look right to me.

Re: Raven takes out RC plane cool video

That was great....I've had it happen more than once ...both times were with a RED plane..??? must have been something about the color I guess.. but that's what a shotgun is for.. shells are cheaper than a plane LOL LOL GREAT video..

Hawks will come after 40 sized glow planes. Once I had that happen to me I stay far away from them even with my 50cc gassers. They are pretty badass in the sky.

Re: Raven takes out RC plane cool video

I have had birds from time to time coming close to my planes to check them out or maybe chase them out of their territory. Never had a close call though,but I'm sure they would attack for what ever reason. I have seen a wild turkey attack a R/C car that a friend was taunting the bird with. To me the video doesn't cut it. No expert with video at all,but I never saw the elevators or the rudder even moving during the flight,and the images of the bird,plane and ground don't seem to mesh all the time.

Re: Raven takes out RC plane cool video

I once had a hawk chase my 69" Yak, but I've chased lots of vultures and some hawks with my SlowStick and foamy. Sometimes I fly right above deer and cows-PRICELESS!

You need to readup on your bird sizes then if you think it's fake.

This has already been discussed numerous times, and time after time it has been proven that this video is 100% true. Search RC Groups and FG for it. There's lots of threads on it.

Re: Raven takes out RC plane cool video

That might be a cheap camera, but its not fake. The elevator moves, the raven/crow grabbed it and twisted it. You see the panic of full up elevator then grass, lol.

Chad...good one bud! They were two P.O.'d magpies! I like how they went all Peregrine on it...tucked in wings on a dive bomb!!
