Hi there ive just started flying a mavic 2 and live in the upper hunter NSW. The last 2 flights I have had wedge tail eagles almost take me out. Looks like pretty much any escarpment has a local one. Im not sure if they are a bit afraid of drone as they haven hit but come straight across nose.

anyway got any tips or things to deter them

my only thought is when going past cliffs go a maximum speed to make it a little harder for them.

Thanks
 
I would recommend some caution when flying in their habitat, and avoid doing it if you can. If they are defending their territory they are NOT scared of your AC, and can destroy it if they want to.
 
The fun starts at the 1 minute mark. There is also a video of a para sailor having to land he was being harassed so much.

when in doubt go up.

you can not out dive them, and diving is a sign of weakness to them.

Climbing scares them off
