Do the two links to Dutch pages make your posting "double dutch"?

Sad news.

It was a very nice, but small shop, a kind of electronics Valhalla. they sold not only raspberry PI's over the counter, but also Arduino, Makeblock, micro:bit, SparkFun, Adafruit, Snap Circuits and Seeed Studio materials, among many other robotics, and maker-space stuff.

been there a few times, its very close to where I work and live.

Hopefully they will restart soon, in a new building.

Yes, local authorities have drones.
They don't like competition though.

I remember seeing that when it hit the news. If I'm not mistaken, it has since been decided that it's too expensive a method in practice. I also note that the bird in the close ups--appears to be an American Bald Eagle--is not the one being flown against the drone. There have also been to videos posted of drones be flown in wildland areas and ratpors taking them out, presumably to protect their nests. The general result of such encounters is raptor: 1, drone: 0.
