The bird, unfortunately, didn't make it, and OP couldn't do anything to stop it from happening.
Here's how the Reddit community reacted to u/Albuyeh:
Such accidents happen all the time.
"Physics being what they are, this did not bode well for the pigeon."
At least the cat got an easy snack, thanks to this user.
When you laugh so hard, you have to pull over.
Well, I was certainly not expecting this.
You can't help but wonder why the bird couldn't do the one thing it's known for.
Birds will randomly appear out of nowhere and just die.
This user had a similar incident, but with his dog.
I don't think that's the goal of flying RC planes.

"I have this fantasy - I don't know how close it is to reality."
Such a plane exists, but it's quite expensive.
It's not easy to handle that.
It's a good starter plane and a lot of fun.
The bird did attack the plane.
The plane fought back; it's basically self defense.
It depends on what kind of bird it was.
People apparently hate pigeons for some reason.
Op should be more careful next time while flying their RC plane. Birds might perceive your plane as a threat and try to fight it off. They won't understand that it's just a toy and could cost them their life.
The physical contact between a bird and an RC plane will almost always be fatal. It's better to not fly it next to areas known for their significant bird populations. If you enjoyed reading this story, make sure to check out similar content on our platform.
