    Took her up for the second or third flight and about 2 mins in I see a couple bumble bees buzzing around it, it starts to attract more and more and when I brought the Phantom close I could see at least 50 big bees checking it out, some getting sliced by the propellers and dropping like...bees. Just had to wipe some bee guts off of her but ****, that was hilariously awesome and unexpected.

    I wonder why they like quad copters? They had been attacking my little Helimax 1SQ and they really go after the phantom.

    I was just doing some low level flying around the backyard after work this afternoon and I noticed one or two large wood bees hanging around the Phantom. I tried to run them down but they were pretty fast. :twisted:

    My bird is a bit blood thirsty too.
    Every now and then I see bug bits and splattered blood on the props.

    It owns the sky and lets bugs know it!
