I thought of getting my son a remote-control plane for Christmas. But I have to think again.
1. Bird Attacks RC Predator RQ-1L and Crashes it
2. RC plane attacked by BIG Eagle
3. Bald Eagle vs RC Airplane!
4. Five eagles attack rc plane must see’ rarely video
5. Raven strikes back an RC airplane (cool video)
I doubt my young son can maneuver the expensive RC plane properly not to mention keeping it proper flight path given the distractions. I think I get him a kite or balloon.
Goodness Gracious Me
Note: The Bald Eagle is a powerful flier, and soars on thermal convection currents. It reaches speeds of 56–70 kilometers per hour (35–43 mph) when gliding and flapping, and about 48 kilometers per hour (30 mph) while carrying fish. Its dive speed is between 120–160 kilometers per hour (75–99 mph), though it seldom dives vertically. (Wikipedia)
