    It does not hover... nor does my current Phantom
    Does not require batteries... my phantom needs 1 every 20 mins
    Also does not adhere to controls... like my phantom
    Amazingly does not need FAA approval... thank god!
    Not limited to 500m
    Kids appear scared of it... no need for crowd control
    Like my Phantom it may or may not come back...

    Enjoy...

    Needs work imo, Nosecone moves about too much and gets in shot. Could also do with a better gimbal.

    Great video of an amazing predator love the dive at the end !

    Cool video! For some strange reason throwing an eagle out of the worlds tallest building somehow reminds me of this:
    Glad the outcome was different.. ;)

    Fisheye video is uncool but the bird is awesome. Of course in the US the ASPCA would be all over this guy for unlawfully detaining a member of the animal kingdom and some kind of violation of the indentured servitude/slavery/peonage laws

    Is it the angle or does it wander in the wind ?
    Imu calibration ?

    Pretty awesome that he glides along until he spots the guy then dives toward him.

    RoboBird, I love it! The dive at the end was epic. Great video, thanks for sharing.
