    That would be a lot of fun I think as well…@r-ice is there anything like this in Durham region?

    No, and even if there was i couldn’t justify racing 2000 dollars in to a wall or something.

    I think wearing those visor displays would take getting use to. Interesting stuff though Aaron.

    The Drone defender… Interesting idea and technology

    Using a SAM would be so much more fun though! 😉

    It will be interesting to see the drone wars of the future.

    i was just reading about the japanese drone wars right now, something to do with mobsters sending drugs by drones and the japanese police using big nets with other drones to catch them.

    Just a matter of time. I can see “dog fights” breaking in the future.

    Guess that’s one way to take out a drone with out having to shoot it down. That’s one massive bird, has to stand an easy 16″ tall.

    Eagles stand about 2 feet and will have a 6 foot wingspan. If you are very close to one ever, when they open their wings it will freak you out. They’re big birds and it is no wonder they are at the top of their food chain when you see their claws.

    I’m surprised the props don’t hurt the bird. Really neat idea although I’m not sure how practical it is with larger drones.

    I have seen crows with 4′ wing span in Japan.

    A 4′ wing span on a crow is a big one. Never knew there was any that big.

    The current concern is actually the bird might get hurt by the propeller blades, don’t think they have a working solution yet.

    I just saw it on the news. It’s the dutch police force using the birds to take out the drones.

    Not a hundred percent how they do it, perhaps they have armor on the talons.

    The stem of their legs are very tough to withstand whatever prey they have clutched from trying to bite or scratch them to be let go. I don’t think those blades would be much different.

    Not yet, they are working on that though, maybe some sort of open end kevlar glove for the talons?

    It’ll probably get destroyed by the bird and you’ll end up getting debris back lol

    Here are the new proposals for regulating drones in Canada..

    BE the change you want to see.

    “Meanwhile, the proposed regulations could mean a lot less red tape for those using drones for commercial use, such as making real estate videos or inspecting construction sites. Instead of having to reapply at least every year for a certificate to fly drones commercially, it could get a lot easier.

    “You go through the process once and then you’ll have a licence just like having an automobile licence,” said Mark Aruja, chairman of the Board for Unmanned Systems Canada, a group that co-chaired the working group to help develop the regulations. ”

    So for inspecting sites it’s becoming easier…

    Like so many other things, it’s the unskilled/untrained that cause a lot of the problems. These new regs will go a long way to reduce that.
