Watch as a swarm of bees are attacking my drone, 40 meters in the air!

My drone (DJI Phantom 4) survived unscathed, except for some blood and guts on the fuselage, battery, and propellers—that were easily wiped clean.

Years ago I was using a Wagner hand held pressure paint sprayer. They buzz like crazy. Every time I started using it one day the bees started flying all around me. Not attacking. I think the buzz annoys them or attracts them. Probably the same with Phantom prop noise.

Surprised one didn't splatter on your camera lens.

I do find it odd why the back gets a lot of hits too. My motorcycle windshield often has as much bug splatter on the back of it than the front too. Weird.

I know, right? The splatter was mainly at the rear of the aircraft and the rear props.
