    yeah I saw it too.
    I hope the eagles don't get hurt trying to take down these drones.
    magnificent birds.

    I don't believe the Eagles don't get hurt by the props.. Maybe a small toy drone wouldn't hurt them, but drones like Phantoms have strong motors, and many heavy lift drones have considerably more powerful motors than that.. Who knows what kind of drones these birds might be sent after. Also if the drone has carbon props those are literally spinning blades.. I know eagles that size have thick, leathery skin but it's still just hardened skin, not armor.. Borderline animal cruelty in my opinion

    They said the talons have a natural coating on them and the props don't hurt it. I can't imagine they could be trained to take a drone down, every day for a year, if it hurt them.

    Hell, they probably LUV the thrill of getting their prey...

    This is a terrible idea, especially if the drone has powerful motors and carbon fiber props.

    They are the ones that are slow and hovering waiting to get caught.
    ABC news did the piece a couple nights ago.
    Would be an interesting match against a larger UAV . A Typhoon with a set of carbon props would not be a pleasant catch.

    Just think of that fish as your duplicate post. :D

    Keep in mind I didn't close all of these but can you see why we do it? Post after redundant post. You would be wading through them if we didn't. ;)
