    Does anyone have advice on the Bird Attacks on drones, I've had a few issues with the Inspire while flying so can only imagine the pesky feathered gits will love the Mavic!!

    When under raptor assault go vertical & climb straight up at max power. Birds can't keep up with the pure vertical climb. This assumes you see them coming & have a chance to evade.

    Last time I was being harassed by a family of Crows in the Highlands of Scotland... Chose to go on the offensive and they cleared off!! No bird expert but logic I guess is they want to see if you are a threat so I didn't want to disappoint:D.

    Alter your route. Probably nesting nearby.

    Surveying a house so had no choice, I left them in piece after about 40 minutes. I'm thinking I'll have my Mavic paint in a Eagle design....

    Go directly vertical. Fly off then, at max speed, then return to home and reset and start over. Hopefully the offending bird is gone by then. If you are in an area where the birds are nesting, may think about moving or coming back at a later date.

    It's okay I've invested in a more friendly drone for birds....

    Shotgun will do the trick. Lure the bird closer to your position and BANG... ;-)
