He was clearly obvlivious of my little plane but it was cool seeing my Beast soaring up there near him.
I've yet to do any propper videos, got a #11 I think, I did put it on my PZ Extra 300 but got carried away and mashed it up!
I have, however, thermalled in my full size glider opposite a Red Kite! That was beautiful
also nearly had a head on collision with a Crow once, I was all for teaching it a lesson when at the last minute I realised it was heading for the canopy and I might have a hard time landing with bird guts all over the windscreen
I swear that I saw it laughing at me as I banked away...
