How well does a H handle a Seagull attack?

While searching You-tube for more H content I can across HeliMoto's channel.


I posted a comment and asked if he could post more commentary on how the YTH performs seeing as this clip was only his 3rd flight. HeliMoto replied as follows:

Thank you! I can tell you that the Typhoon H is a tough aircraft. I was filming in San Diego (La Jolla Cove) on Thursday and getting some AWESOME footage when the was attacked and hit by a large sea gull! One of the props was broken and I was still over the cliff/water, while I was at a high power setting the H was pretty stable but as I lowered power to bring it in the wind and unbalanced nature of the broken prop became a handful. Luckily I was able to bring her in safely and grabbed it out of the air. The video actually shows the sea gull hitting the H and the prop flying off, I'll be putting that video up today. I have never been so glad that I did not buy a Phantom 4 as I would have lost it that day.

Thought this may be of interest
