This video from YouTube user Michael Delaney gives us an awesome close-up view of a rattlesnake pit. The only problem is, those snakes are far from happy to see a flying robot invade their space. One of them knocks the drone out of the air, forcing the camera’s owner to brave a literal snakepit to retrieve his beloved (and expensive) GoPro.
Luckily, Delaney had a hockey stick on hand to pluck the drone from its perilous landing site. Still, this seems like a good reminder not to mess with a bunch of angry rattlesnakes.
