Watch a Wedge-Tailed Eagle, the largest bird of prey in Australia, knock a drone out of the sky, sending it into a tailspin before crashing into the ground. “It survived” said Adam Lancaster about his drone “but I need $100 in parts to get it going again.” The eagle, who was protecting her airspace, also survived the skirmish.

You may remember the Australians who take a sport and find a way to super-size it. In one video, a guy throws a Frisbee off a bridge, and another guy catches it... after jumping off a speed boat.
