Hawk Swoops in on FPV Drone

Occurred on August 24, 2020 / Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA

Info from Licensor: "I was flying my drone from a church parking lot (with permission). Remembrance Church in Grand Rapids, MI. They are an AV client of mine. I flew my drone around a large tree on their property and caught some grass and had a soft crash. I flipped my drone over remotely (turtle mode) and as soon as I turned over, I saw a hawk swoop down to attack. I spun the motors to try and fend it off to keep the hawk from flying away with my drone. Thankfully the tall grass was holding it in place on the ground a bit and the hawk wasn't able to get a hold of it. I couldn't see and physical damage from the hawk on the drone and I'm still flying the same drone today. I did keep a close eye out for the hawk as I approached to drone. I noticed a second hawk flying around as well."
