Bothering Bald faced hornets with an Action Drone AD-1

Hornet Hacking with a Quadcopter HD

Our kids noticed this big hornets nest while riding their four wheelers. Having four hives of honeybees very near, I decided to do some filming. Using my Action Drone AD-1 equipped with the Naza M V2 and GoPro3 Black, we set out to just fly up to and video the reaction, thinking they would swarm the multirotor. I was flying Line of site from a relatively safe distance, which, along with losing GPS signal in close to the building, resulted in impacting the nest. Even then, the hornets did not swarm the drone. The nest was completely repaired less than 24 hours later, my next attack wave is in the planning stages, no stings yet and going to try and keep it that way!
Action Drone AD-1 is controlled with a Taranis X9D+ and X8R rx. Filmed with four cameras--Nikon D800/28-300---Sony A5100/16mm pancake---GoPro3 Black---Mobius. Stills edited in Lightroom 6, video compiled and edited in Final Cut Pro X.

I love how the hornets decided to attack the cameras and not the giant freaking drone who almost cut their nest in half

I was hoping you'd chop up the hive more with the propellers

Sorry to know you've passed away. You seem like a good dude. Thats the thing we all fear as men...Leaving our kids and wife behind to figure things out on their own. Thanks for the video. To the rest of you guys...USE EXPLOSIVES to deal with hornets nests, bee gives, etc. A solid concussion/explosive blast kills all the insects and destroys the hive.
