It was a seemingly normal Wednesday for YouTuber Christopher Schmidt. He was out flying his Phantom FC40 quadcopter at Magazine Beach Park in Cambridge, Massachusetts, when a hawk decided he wasn’t too thrilled with the drone’s presence.
As the footage from the drone-mounted GoPro Hero 3+ Black clearly shows, the hawk swoops in for the kill and sent the aircraft plummeting to the ground.
Schmidt notes that once he saw the hawk approach, he throttled down the props on the drone to try and minimize any harm to the bird. As far as he could tell, the hawk was unscathed (as was the drone).
