I had a first time today where I was at a beach in a more public place. It's still winter here in Australia, but enough to have a few conversations with people. I found particularly those who didn't want to say something were the ones who could be more concerned with what I was doing, so I kept talking to them while flying and encouraged them to step forward to me to see what I could see in the sky and on the phone. Once I think they realised it was pretty much impossible to identify them from the footage they became a lot friendlier and I could fly in peace. Those who were friendly enough I also made the point to speak a bit louder than usual so anyone walking by can also catch on. A bit of education seems to have done everyone good! No one was in the water though so I flew the bird about 50m off shore. Was great fun as i've never flew out over a beach till today.
