    We took our Phantom 2 out over the coast of Kaikoura, New Zealand. Luckily managed to catch some seals in the FPV screen... and somehow managed to evade the army of seagulls which took offense to our flights.[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1JkbUvlAXk[/youtube]

    Beautiful!
    Were the seals spooked at all?

    The footage of the waves splashing on the rocks is amazing!

    @ Andrey320 The seals seemed to be totally fine with the whole thing, and didn't really draw any reaction, aside from looking up to see what the noise was. However, it was windy, and there were waves crashing all around, so maybe I just didn't notice them.

    @adelaar Thanks. We actually got lucky on that one. We were aiming for a different outcropping of rocks, but the local seagulls had no patience for our exploaration, so we filmed this rock as a consolation prize.
