    I was flying around a local park with a buddy of mine yesterday, trying to hone my skills when flying through tight spaces... then I flew above some trees and a swarm of bees attacked my Phantom. I didn't fly close to the tree that they swarmed from, heck, I didn't even realize that it was a swarm of bees until I brought it in to land. (I didn't land because I didn't want to get stung; instead, I flew away from my friend and I until the bees "buzzed off".)

    Those bees were PISSED! LOL...I would have landed it next to someone else LOL. Ok thats just mean i know...but it would be funny.

    Great flying by the way though. nice and smooth and controlled in the tight places. I have tried some tight space flying and i can get through but i tend to get jumpy on the sticks and i know any footage i would have would be unusable or at least very very little of it would be good.
