    I went to say hi today with my Vision Plus. They don't seem to mind too much.. Fearless birds... When I was sure they wouldn't freak out I got as close to 2-3m.

    They regularly stop traffic where I live. Good Heli video subjects.

    I've flown around Canadian Geese and they pretty much ignore the quad. I held a hover at three feet above ground level and about thirty feet away as a dozen geese wandered by. Only one paid any attention to the Phantom and he came closer to look it over, then turned away and went on with the others.

    The geese around me are the opposite. As soon as I take off, all geese within a 100-200 yard radius all take off.

    I always joke, that i could have used this year's ago to keep the geese from crapping all over the property
