    I thought I would start a thread where news videos about drones could be posted so we can all keep an ear to the ground about how the media can affect our hobby, good or bad. If you run across interesting news about drones, post them here.

    I'll start with this Dutch report about birds being trained to hunt drones. Interesting idea.

    I wonder what happens when the pilot tries to protect his drone by trying to get it back from the bird? I can't imagine most pilots would just shut the power down and let the bird fly away without a fight of their own. Those blades can be incredibly destructive.

    I'd love to see the birdie catch something bigger, not sure if even the DJI Inspire would be such an easy catch. Not sure if this is such a great idea.
