    Before ya go saying it ain't possible, it is.
    The trick is to be in a car following the bird.
    According to the coordinates shown, this was filmed on hwy 156 in nevada just north of Las Vegas.

    Hmmmmm.
    If I had a bird capable of doing 100mph, I could fly it high above me in the air and use it to spot for cops with radar eh?
    The cops would never see the bird but I can easily see them.

    40 mph! I'm guessing the wind was behind you.
    Nice video. This idea would make for a nice hyper lapse if props were out of the picture.

    Sweet! Tell us about your setup. FPV is very impressive.

    Interesting, your FPV shows everything except battery levels

    Not my video!
    Don't know if the pilot was using fpv or not.

    Airspeed? Why don't they label that groundspeed like it is.
