    i'm surprised the noise doesn't deter the hawk.

    How did the hawk avoid getting cut by the props?

    I'd bet it has a sore foot.

    Would have been ugly with carbon fibre props!

    I hope the hawk did not get injured. I noticed a bald eagle checking out my Vision one day, and I brought it down as quick as possible.

    That's one aggresive hawk! And an awesome shot of the attack.

    I'm surprised the quad didn't recover and not crash.

    At least now I can show a friend this video, so he will stop asking to fly near an eagle's nest on his property....

    This makes me wonder if there's any design or color that could be used to deter attacks by hawks, eagles, etc.

    Looks like the battery got knocked out.

    I hope the Hawk is okay. Maybe he just hit the prop guards. The rotors really could have taken that birds leg off :(
