Get your noisy anachronism out of my historical battle reenactment!

A film crew was just trying to capture Rusborg – a Russian historical reenactment festival that focuses on combat in the Middle Ages – from every angle they could. They got some great footage of the camp and some of the battles using a low flying quadcopter, then…

I guess he decided that the drone wasn’t historically accurate, and had to be taken out. Not quite as awesome as an eagle, but it got the job done.


Here’s the full video of the event. Warning: Russian electronic dance music.

~Any SCA folks out there that would have attempted this throw?
