In my video above, I slowed down a portion where a crow comes into the frame to check out the Firewing. There was a group of them in a nearby tree... Don't know how many of them constitute a "Murder of Crows" but I kept trying to get a little close to their roost to see what they would do... The problem is, that when the little Firewing gets too far from me, it's hard to maintain orientation. Also, the concentration required to maintain a left turn can be distracting... Still, it was a super fun couple of flights. The single charge seems to last quite a while...

Maybe they will come out with a kit for a dragonfly!

Super cool video XL. Pretty amazing flight!

I did a pretty good job on this flight, but my cam fogged up and had mist on the lens...
