    Is it normal for sworming bees to attack, follow and or love a Phantom?

    Usually, just the big birds come after the Phantoms. Perhaps it's the buzzing they don't like.

    Impressive! I never would have thought bees would fly so high. I bet you sliced quite a few in half and had to clean your props after that flight.

    (Awful music. Just saying.)

    I got bee'd today at around 50m alt with my Inspire. A small swarm buzzed around it till I landed. Never seen that before!
