Wanna see a hawk that hates drones as much as the FAA?

A hawk flying above Magazine Beach park in Cambridge, Massachusetts saw a quadcopter drone all up in its business and decided to do what a hawk should do in such a situation – take it the f--k out.

"On Oct 8th, I was flying my quadcopter at Magazine Beach Park in Cambridge, when a hawk decided he wasn't too happy with my invasion of his airspace... As far as I could tell, the hawk came out unscathed, and having defeated his prey, was happy to retreat. (As soon as he flew at me, I throttled down the props to try to minimize any harm to the bird.) The quadcopter came out unscathed as well," says the owner of the quadcopter and invader of airspace Christopher Schmidt.

Good thing both survived. I think we can share the skies. Can there be a peace?
