Was the minimum focus distance set on 8.5m?

Tried both settings and did not seem to make a difference in speed or accuracy. I may send the body in to have it serviced but I know canon is famous for having horrible service with so many having to send theirs back 2 or 3 times to get something fixed. It could be me though, I have not totally ruled out user error. It is just that when I first got it last month it work perfectly and tracked very well.

Thanks guys, I know I got lucky that she(I think it is a female coopers) decided to fly so low against the blue sky and I just happened to be on the ledge.

Both of those are awfully nice NoA.
The 1st is great w/a nearly eye-level view; and the 2nd image showing the top of the wings. The 2nd is rare and very special for that reason.
