    If you recorded in 60 or 120 fps, you could really get some super-slow-motion playback!

    Was contact ever made?

    thts hard to say as in the one photo you can see the part of the wing which looks like its over the right motor..i dont know if the prop cut part of its wing or its was just a very lucky miss

    I had 3 circling my 500k+ and one dove at it and took it out at 187' up. The reason I now have a P4. You're in their airspace and they're just defending from what they probably think is another bird.

    Turn off your VPS, I hear it pisses them off... if you're not flying low to the ground, just turn it off.
