Flying eagle point of view by YouTube user Srachi

Remarkable for the tech as much as the POV, YouTube user Srachi has uploaded this short video of an eagle in flight over France with a GoPro action camcorder mounted to its back. The GoPro HERO3 cameras weigh only 2.6 ounces. There are several POV base jumping videos from Srachi on his YouTube channel, including the absolutely hair-raising scene you will find posted below. Good thing there wasn’t much traffic..
