    Hi, my new P3 dropped out of the sky today because of a seagull attack. I went too close to their cave and they attacked and phantom fell down on the rocks. I managed to grab it back though, and got some interesting video which I'll probably share soon.

    What do you mean? Has this happened to you also?

    I would be interested in seeing the video.

    This happens to me All the time. I was about 3000 feet away returning home when I saw two seagull in full chase behind me. I dropped attitude and full throttled back to me as they took dives at it.

    And at my work last week I had the same thing happen to me with a **** crow.

    Seagulls every where in the bay area

    I have the raw footage of the incident now. Just need to do a bit of video editing first, to cut out all the non-interesting bits. Maybe add some music.
