Hmmmm. Chasing around birds of prey. Turkey Vultures. Hmmmm. Better not tell too many people. Harassing them is considered a federal crime.

"It has very few natural predators.[12] In the United States of America, the vulture receives legal protection under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918.[13]"

Quoted from : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkey_Vulture

Please consider this before you chase them in the future. If you want to play combat, please do so with other RC planes designed to do so.

Get your panties out of a wad!!!![>:] They weren't vultures and it looks to me like the plane was not harassing them , they were chasing the plane.

In the original post it was noted that the poster was in the habit of chasing vultures. After I made my post he conveniently removed that part of the content from his post.
I am going to guess it was he was concerned of legal ramifications.

cool vid!! I love it! Those were some really great wildlife shots! Thanks for sharing much enjoyed it How did u mount your camera?

you were clearly the one getting chased in that footage. I don't know what kind of birds those were. But they weren't vultures.They might be acommon varietytree swallow. Not the scissor tail swallow, but the more commonly found variety of tree swallow. There's no harm in filming wildlife, evenif they are chasingyou!! Btw thank heaven for the United States of America and our right to free speech as well, even if you did say you were "chasing vultures" there's no evidence you ever committed a crime.Anyway, I really enjoyed it LOL
