  15. If you've ever seen Indigenous Australia's most-famed hunting weapon, the boomerang, you'll know it's a solid piece of wood that can really pack a punch if it manages to hit you.

The DJI Phantom 4 Pro manages to take the whack of the weapon, which actually breaks. The drone is disturbed from its original position by the whack, but finds its wings again pretty quickly. Still — good luck going up against those eagles. Read more... More about Video, Videos, Drone Footage, Drone, and DronesView the full article
