A short video of what looks like a juvenile RTH attacking a drone that gets too close. Hawk 1, drone 0.​m …cks-drone-out-of-the-sky/ (external link)

A few birds of prey have had a go at a couple of my Radio Controlled gliders but I just dip the nose a touch and they can't keep up so no worries or, more importantly, injuries to the birds.

Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).

I've thought of using a drone during hawk migration. The video confirms what I suspected might happen given enough opportunities, though this does appear to be a territorial issue.
