today, i had a huge luck

i was at 30mt high and 3 falcons came so fast that i didnt have time to land, so i had to escape.

When u have birds trying to get u, dont forget, they are very fast flying down, but not so fast going up

the only way to escape, for me, was flying in squares, going down after turn, and up when the falcons aproached less then half meter.

always with full power to the sides,

i got several escapes from 1 falcon, but 3 at the same time was kind of insane.....


dont forget, u are faster going up!

territorial swallows are also a nuisance, but fortunately they only attack while am launching and disappear again when the drone is flying off.

I was by a few small birds in Michigan. They were flying around my P3A and I just stayed in 1 spot so I wouldn't hit one or a bird fly into me.

Small ducks run away, larger ones just seem nervous and pelicans give 0 sh**s.  heh.  

You can see some here if you care (not self-promoting so if wrong, please remove but is relevant): (should start at 2 Minutes, 40 Seconds where the birds begin)

Have had a couple of bird attacks.
Some species are very territorial and attack anything that moves.
Luckily they didn't actually impact with the Phantom.

What's your name? Chuck Norris? haha

A falcon at less than half a meter from your phantom means only one thing: phantom ---> huge crash.
