screenshot eagle takes down drone

Alright, it’s Saturday, but it’s still epic. Unless, of course, it’s your drone that went down. Hopefully, it was a soft landing!

2m Wedge-Tailed Eagle takes down Drone. Watch it Punch it out of the sky – Australia (Eagle is Fine)

Missed that? Well here it is again but in slow motion.  Suggestion:  Watch while imagine the theme song to Apocalypse Now. (Cut me some slack here, it’s Saturday morning.)

Some dude’s flying camera was on the wrong end of a bird strike when it came face-to-face with Australia’s largest bird of prey.
Adam Lancaster’s drone was no match for the wedge-tailed eagle as it dug it’s talons into the machine while it propelled through the air.
Luckily for us, the footage survived the crash landing.
