Both ground and in-air video of my Dream-Flight "Alula" RC glider being attacked by a hawk in the lovely mountains of northern Utah. Every time I fly this particular slope the local hawk shows up and tries to knock my "hawk like" plane out of the sky. So I decided to film it. This was a somewhat blustery yet incredibly beautiful spring day! Perfect winds for slope soaring this light model. I taped a cheap chewing gum pack shaped micro camera onto the Alula's back to get the in-air attack footage, and held the same camera in my left hand while operating the radio and flying with my right for the ground shots. Sorry if it makes you a little dizzy while watching. It's hard to hold steady and do all this at the same time! This was also my very first attempt ever at editing a video, so still learning the software. Did some full-speed, slow motion, and freeze frames of the most interesting parts. Enjoy!
