Hi, just wondered if anyone has experiences with Eagles and Vultures with Drones? Not always, but we do have Golden Eagles and Vultures that orbit our location in the mountains, or sometimes appear just sitting on the thermals, but I don't want to fly and disturb them. Are these species likely to attack high altitude drones both in close proximity and if they can see the Drones from afar? As we know there eyesight is sniper like. Ideally I don't want to get into a dogfight with a massive bird of prey to try and save my Drone! Any thoughts or shared experiences much appreciated.
Hunter Harrison posted a topic in The Pilot LoungeWe love drones and want to protect the community as it expands. When a drone strikes a light aircraft, there will be calls for crushing new regulation on drones. HiddenGenius is launching a competition for technology that allows small drones to sense and avoid airplanes. This tech will help everyone in the drone community - and possibly reduce future liability, regulation, and risk of killing pilots. We need your help sponsoring (crowdfunding) the prize for the winning technology! You can also help shape the goals and rules of the competition, share it with others, and compete to win!
