No, not on purpose. They were trying to defend their territory I guess and so they went nuts. Ive seen them go after his planes but I didnt see him actually hit one, I was joking around about it and asked him if he's ever hit one and he said he did.

i was commenting on the thread starter

yeah, having birds chase after you and mid air you is just bad luck, but to actually hunt down a bird which hasnt done anything to you?

Trinity_09,

This is the RC Humor forum, but I'm damned if I see the humor in intentionally flying an RC aircraft into a bird. Anyone who thinks killing a bird just for the fun of it is funny needs to grow up. But then again, look at the way the thread is written, it explains a lot.
And by the way, if what you wrote is true, and you actually hit the bird with your prop it probably didn't survive.

Wow, remember when Dave Winfield hit the bird at Yankees stadium? He was fined and got a ticket from NYPD For killing a pigeon or something.

I've had chickens chase after my RC trucks before. It was funny watching a chicken run around trying to kill an RC10T...he never did catch up though!

Found this about Winfield:

"On August 4, 1983, Winfield, while warming up before the 5th inning of a game at Toronto's Exhibition Stadium, accidentally killed a seagull with a thrown ball. He doffed his cap in mock sorrow. Fans responded by hurling obscenties and improvised missiles. After the game, he was brought to the Ontario Provincial Police station on charges of cruelty to animals and was forced to post a $500 bond before being released. Quipped Yankees manager Billy Martin, "It's the first time he's hit the cutoff man." The charges were dropped the following day. For years afterward Winfield's appearances in Toronto were greeted with loud choruses of boos, but he later became a fan favorite. (A similar accident involving a bird happened to Randy Johnson during spring training in March 2001.)"
Bottom line: At Toronto, seagull, accidental, no fine. (And I'm a Red Sox fan. I just hate to see anyone having false rumors about them.

Hey Alex, where are you wandering? I'm just wondering.

^ Thats why, I agree with you on it somewhat. Depends on the species, I would be mad if it was something endangered, or rare. But there's also something called hunting, where you shoot geese, ducks, pheasants, quail, and a bunch of other fowl, intentionally.

Im not standing up for TRINITY_09, its just that statement bothered me

I was also addressing this towards carmatic and doubledee.

At our flying field in the netherlands we have received a warning from "waterstaat" ( a company that's part of the government to ensure a safe living environment for everyone) that someone saw a bird being chased on purpose by a rc plane. they said that if it would happen again they would close down our field.....

Uh... hunting with an RC plane? First of all, it's illegal. There's laws about what types of weapons you can use. Second, it's dangerous. Your plane could do ANYTHING after hitting a bird. Third, if you're going to hunt, shoot the bird. Don't hit it with an airplane, break a wing and make it suffer (the bird). Do it properly.

It is true that people hunt birds, but then they eat them. Even if they don't eat them and just stuff em', it is for a reason not a couple of laughs. I dont see the purpose of the thread nor do i know why i felt i needed to post in it, but you should realize what you are saying. You are basically saying "well this birds' life is not as important than this "rare" bird, so sure lets hit it with a plane??[&:]

anyone who thinks killing a bird for fun is funny needs to grow up.

When I first read this, I took it as "people who hunt need to grow up"

When I read it again, I saw that he was saying "killing a bird for fun with no real reason, needs to grow up"

I agree, hunting is something that should be done in respect and for a certain personal reason.

I'm not saying that "this bird's" life is less important than a "rare bird's" life. I would just be more upset if it was an endangered bird because, its just that, endangered.

I just realized that I have been spelling "wondering" wrong. I was spelling it with an "a"

Yeah, Winfield hit a seagull. I knew he hit a bird. And then randy johnson did it again in 01'. Sucks for those birds but there is no way you can say that winfield and johnson were trying to do that. NO WAY.

This kid at was trying to hit the bird. That is f***ed up big time. The guy that mentioned that their RC field will be shut down, you should find the jerk that almost had your field shut down and slap him a few times. Not hard slaps but the kinds that wake a person up.

I somehow still can't find the RC humor in this thread. I've hunted foul for food. They are good eating (quail, Pigeon etc.) and went for a good cause. Fed myself and my platoon many times from bird foul when our supplies were low.

Other than that, I try to respect creatures large and small. I even pick up cockroaches and put them outside when I find one in my bathroom or kitchen. So someday if they do rule the earth, maybe they will let a human go here and there. Never know.

Default RE: hit a bird with plane.

Years ago when Astroflite first came out with their E Models I had one of their high wingers. In our part of the world we have what we call "Cow Birds" which are actually Egrets, but because these big white birds frequent pastures where cattle and horses graze, taking advantage of the bugs they find around livestock, we call them "Cowbirds." Each evening flocks will form up to return to the roost in wooded and marshy areas nearby. Because my Astroflite model was electic and quiet, I could come up behind the flock as they passed over our field. Now and then some would drop back to check out the new "bird" that joined the flock, but no defensive action would take place. I even had one turn away when I did and followed me through two 360 degree turns off my right wing while lookind my plane over good. When was satisfied I was no threat, he banked away to rejoined the flock. They were only up a hundred feet or so giving me a good close look at the whole event...and to me is was an event. They are beautiful birds in flight, and I got a real kick out of it. Hell a lot more satisfying than slamming into them, just to see the feathers fly. "Takes all kinds!" I've often heard it said.

I like flying in formation with the gulls at my slope. I don't purposely try to hit them, but if I did it would probably do more damage to my plane than the bird.

That has got to be the coolest thing I have read yet on RCU. That had to be a site. Could you do this and get video of it? Maybe an in-flight camera that could show the birds viewing your plane! AWESOME!

I like to hit birds on purpose, but with my .308 LOL! Any species other than the eagle.

What's your favorite recipe? I have a bunch of quail (6 birds lightly slathered with a sweet vinegar/ tomato based BQ sauce) [sm=52_52.gif]on the grill right now as I type!
