I was flying all day long at Sheep Creek Canyon and towards evening was flying a MASSIVE WALL and lost sight of the drone. I went to GPS and was flying towards the truck really really high up and trying to get an eyeball on the drone. Finally I seen what I thought was the drone but it was a huge Golden Eagle. Finally I seen the drone and the eagle in the area of it but I didn't think anything of it and actually forgot about the eagle. So I'm sitting here watching the 7 video's i recorded today and all of the sudden here comes this Huge Golden screaming dead at the drone! My jaw hit the floor!!!! WHOA!!!!! I about got taken out!!! On the left side at the horizon line. The Eagle made a second pass high over the drone (last two pics). I have two video's I shot in Sheep Creek Canyon, Utah two days ago on YouTube, honker47 is my handle. Will take days to upload the ones I shot today but eventually I'll get them done. Seeing the speed this eagle came onto me is shockingly hardcore! I'll title it with the Eagle attach in the title. Maybe by Friday.....?

Watching some video's on YouTube of Others getting taken out by hawks and eagles. YIKES, way not cool!!! And it does happen. Glad he didn't actually hit the drone and take it out.

Close Call! Birds are definitely one of the hazards i'm looking for when deciding whether to actually take my drone up or not... Sometimes if they are in the area but not close by, I will fly, but definitely keeping an eye out!

Ya, I was watching a few video's last night and Raptors will try and take a drone out thinking they're probably dinner.
