Yeah sorry, just tried to fix it but this has happened before. DJI sends me a message that it has "innapropriate content" (which is just so bizarre!) It has been posted on a competing forum successfully though.

Odd,  I looked through your Vimeo page manually and couldn't see it on there either.

Fixed it (in an odd way) it wouldn't let me replace the original URL so I deleted it, actual video is now just above!

Such gorgeous footage Chris,   I could watch the kangaroos all day,  but the flock of birds I was scared for the drone.

thanks for that! I think generally birds are a species thing, those are corellas and I've never seen them get in the way of a drone (they sure don't get in the way of each other!) But I hear you have issues with seagulls in the UK, I'm not familiar with them as our town is 1000 miles from the sea in every direction.

Absolutely beautiful footage.   Love watching the kangaroos.  Don't think I've see that many birds in one place before.  They didn't even seem to pay attention to the drone.

Corellas seem to be fascinated by drones and genuinely seem to enjoy you flying with them, and that’s an observation from all over Australia

I live on a mini-yacht and have channel access to open water very close nearby so I get plenty of gulls on a daily basis.  They seem to be really attracted to drones.  I've also had a falcon attack my drone twice.  Fortunately I was able to put it into sport mode and ascend as fast as the Air 2 S would to avoid it.  I watched him take on a Matrice once so he is definitely not afraid of any drones.  So now I just avoid that location.

yes birds are different everywhere and reactions even vary within the same species. But I think from what I've heard gulls certainly "annoy" drones as do many raptors.

There is probably a letter combination in there that is 'forbidden' somehow. I had that too sometimes.

No doubt about the annoying gulls.

The worst part about the gulls is they are always doing target practice on my dock and on the deck of my boat.  Gets a bit old having to power wash every other week or so.

At least you're not moored in Australia, you know emus can swim?

Interesting video.  I knew that Emus were the only birds with calf muscles and could run fast but I had no idea they could swim.  Learned something new today.

even more mind-boggling kangaroos can too, think of the mechanics there!
