    I stopped by a Marina this evening to see what good pictures/video I might be able to get,,this Marina is on a Peninsula,,I start realizing birds are circling around the P3,,,they start getting closer,,,,I figure they were just curious, but normally birds see to move away from it, not these, one was flying right at it

    It was fairly loud out, and somewhat windy,,not sure if that mattered, but I brought the P3 down and moved to a different area to get away from the birds,,I can just see clipping one and ending up in the lake.

    Has anyone else had this happen?

    When I fly by my house, swallows love to try and attack it. When I fly in the fields, I get turkey vultures wanting to fight.

    The best idea is just to accelerate upward out of their range, or ground yourself for the day if they keep persuing

    Yeah had it happen with annoying seagulls. They seem quite territorial. They were playing dive-bomb-chicken with it, but I just kept on flying and playing cool. Phantom swagger.
