Dave it's the robo crow but in the shape of a goshawk. They had a few different bird designs. They flew a gyr x New Zealand falcon after it but was too fast for me to record and I didn't want to miss the bird catching it. It ended up crashing into a tree and one of them then had to climb up to bring the robo and the bird down. It was nice to watch though. I've got a bit of footage but don't know how to put up here. Pm me your email if you want and I'll send it to you. It's nothing special but ok

I think Gerry is right and Shawn charges something for the pamphlet, though I don't know what. Otherwise he probably would've just put it on a website somewhere rather than taking the trouble to print it out. There's a FB group, Falconry Drones, that he's on a fair amount for those who are on it. He's very helpful and a great guy to talk to

Scott Irwin has a superb set up and it's now available on line for about 30 quid it's simple exact balanced and neat
I'll get some pics of it when next we're out
Tod I'd say that holder on the leg looks a little risky to me it's unbalanced and too close to the rotors , have you had anything going up into the blades ?

On the subject of quads a mate flew his go pro all singing all dancing quad over a few ponds today we watched the duck on a tv screen then put my falcon up and had a nice flight, she knocked a mallard down 2 in 4 flights so she's warming up nicely

Drone is a digital alternative but you need good hands to operate a drone.
