Met this guy at the Seattle Waterfront today. He really didn't seem to like me being here!

Shot in 2.7k 60FPS, slowed to 30FPS to make it a little more interesting.

(wait for it at the end...)

Seagulls are typically very aggressive and the worst birds to fly near - you were very lucky. I flew near Red Kites earlier in the week which are about three times the size of seagulls and they just flew away from the drone. Even the most on-point preflight check and firmware update can't stop an unexpected strike by a gull.

Yeah, there is an old video on YT of two bald eagles working together to take down an Inspire - which they did!

A seagull took out my friends inspire, last year. It wasn't a pretty sight.

Glad it did not decide to take your drone out. They can do it.

Hello there pbrowntv. Thank you for reaching out and for sharing this interesting video with us. That was close. Just a reminder that birds are part of our natural environment and I'm sure they're not familiar to the drones that is why they react aggressively when they notice it. Thank you and please fly safe always.

Simply do full throttle UP at the first sign of incoming attacker. Birds can't do that!
