SK Park Hawk and crows attacking it.

Thanks for the help with the cog, now enjoy this picture. I am flying the SK Park Hawk with 800 Ma 2s1p battery, stock motor, at Costa Mesa CA flying field. After no more than 2 minutes the crows start squawking and circling my Ornithopter. Soon there were lots of crows, circling and making lots of noise. Some wanted to attack it; others just wanted to be close. Everyone there was cracking up watching this thing and the birds flying around, what fun.

I saw the same happening while I was working.A murder of crows where fighting off a very large turkey buzzard.Seems they don't like strange ugly predators in their space.

Parhawk look like small facon so falcon is enemy number one of crow.
Owl are also enemy of crow.

Very cool, as long as no plane gets harmed.
We had that once almost. A big hawk suddenly came and got his talons out for an attack, but the plane got away and we could scare him enough to leave.

That's a cool photo. It's always a lot of fun when stuff like that happens.
It never ceases to make me laugh when the birds show up.

"SK Park Hawk and crows attacking it."

Those crows are programmed to do this when one is close to exceding 400' AGL. It is a semi secret FAA program. Duhhh.

I love that picture Himeros!

Part of the reason i wished for an ornithopter, for my birthday back in August, was to freak out our magpies. Wifey thought it fun too, so she ordered one for me in July.
Seing how they react to owls and hawks, i'm sure I'll get plenty of photo opportunities, when/if the Park Hawk is shipped to me.

Oh well, perhaps I'll get it for X-Mas.

All the best,
