Drone Photo Of The Year

Check out this awesome photo! This photo was taken a few years ago by and Indonesian drone pilot who managed to shoot an eagle in flight. The author told the story of the great performance:

“The photo was taken on 2012, we were working on aerial photos for eco-tourism spot at Bali Barat National Park (west Bali, Indonesia) . We were taking vertical aerial photos using autopilot. Suddenly the eagle came and chasing our drones, so I decided to take over and switch to manual control. After few minutes we discovered that the eagle did not attack the drone but chasing and playing with it. So we decided to do manual fliying (with fpv) and make the eagle chase the drone and do maneuver so the eagle positioned just in front our camera. So it just a huge luck and a perfect moment combination.”

How cool!
