    I am down at the coast on holiday. I had just taken off on a recce for a mission when this happened.. I am sure that more than one of the "my drone fell out the sky and now I'm going to put in a warranty claim" whines was as a result of bird strikes.

    Wow.. atleast the goose seemed pretty uninterested in the quad. Maybe everybody should put their footage together from close calls with birds. Could name it "Close Encounters of the Bird Kind"
