    Birds are driving me nuts

    I have had my Mavic Pro 2 for two weeks and at least half the time I fly, it is attracting several birds, to the point of one bumping it from behind knocking it around (Scary!) Anybody else having this issue?

    Nearly crashed my drone into over a dozen birds of prey!

    A short drone film I have made recently of birds of prey searching for food with the DJI Mavic Pro! Please give it a watch it you have a spare 2 mins. Appreciate all feedback :) (P.S. I know it's not color graded, my laptop froze and for that day wouldn't allow me to retner Premiere Pro so had...

    Wild Goose Chase video

    I've decided to take this video off YouTube due to concern that it might encourage others to do what I never intended to do--bother the birds. Thanks for all your comments. Being inexperienced, and not having read all the posts about disastrous Bird Strikes, I flew among a huge flock of Snow...

    Mavic vs Snow Goose

    Check out what happened when a flock of snow geese flew right at my Mavic Pro. These birds weigh over 5 pounds. I hovered in place, hoping they'd be able to dodge the drone, but ... When all was said and done, the Mavic was fine, and I got some amazing footage.

    The Hidden Life of Coots

    A cover of waterbirds from an unusual perspective :-) This is our first complete short film made with a drone. Any constructive criticism is welcome. The music was composed by Monica Xiao. Check out her other compositions too.

    Mr. Hawk meets Ms. Drone! (Mavic Pro)

    This was my first encounter with a large bird of prey. He was obviously curious about the Magic Pro. After the first pass by me, he started to get more aggressive. The flight ended swiftly in an effort to not aggravate the Hawk further or run the risk of being taken down. The film footage is...

    Birds: dangerous?

    How high is the risk of bird collisions? I was flying over a wetland area when suddenly this appeared: It happened a second time a few seconds later. Given the wide field of view of the camera, they must have been pretty close. I freaked out and went straight up immediately. How dangerous...

    Have you ever crashed your Mavic?

    Please check all that apply. An Act of God/Nature: Birds, some freak accident that was NOT pilot error OR DJI malfunction. Major damage: Something besides basic prop replacement was required. An actual repair was required by you or someone else DJI Malfunction: Clearly a problem with the...

    Birds ever an issue for you?

    just finished a heart pounding flight home after I had a small flock of barn swallows doing fake-out nose dives at my mavic, some passing within meters of my gimbal. I figure I'd flown over a nesting area and promptly gtfo. Just thought I'd gather people's thoughts or experiences with upsetting...

    Maybe a tiny collision with bird? What do you think?

    Hello to all.. I said it before and i say it again, i love flying above water. Long story short.. About a month ago i tried filming a small nearby island about 1.2 km away from beach. As i approached i saw dozens of birds laying around. When i finally reached the island i stopped and turned...

    Bridges and Birds

    A while back I was out in the country flying near a couple of bridges. As I flew, dozens of swallows came out from under the bridges and starting swirling around my Mavic. Here's the video... music is "Pioneers" by Audionautix. Unfortunately iMovie deleted my title and I didn't notice until...

    Sensors saved me from BIRDS.

    Credit to DJI. The front sensing sensors work on birds passing by close. **** flock nearly trashed my Mavic while on holiday in Portugal. Extreme close. I was shaking aftwards. They had 3 passes. I'd say within a meter. Wow.

    Dam Birds!

    I shot this at Rollins Reservoir & Dam, near Colfax, California. On the flight in, I encountered a swarm of birds. Luckily they didn't get too close, but it made for some nice footage. Be sure to check out the last shot, coming down the spillway of the dam. It came out really nice...

    Had my first encounter with a flock of birds

    Out doing a test shoot of active track and a flock of pink and grey galahs decided they wanted a closer look. I didn't know what to do other than hope they didn't hit it

    Near miss flock of doves / Water purification plant

    Now I can add doves to my bird list. So far I have a goose, seagull and a strork. Wonder what would have happened if I had not ascended. Strong wind when shooting. Amazing machine

    Wild Turkeys Caught

    Saw a flock of Wild American Turkeys out in the middle of my corn field about 2 hours ago and tried to capture them on my Mavic, which I take with me everywhere I go. They were about 1/3 mile away, light was almost gone, and it was very cold, but I got up in the air just in time to catch them...

    Bird attack killed the Mavic

    At least now he can have the jello repaired also. :)
