    Is getting attacked by random bees and flying insects while I'm concentrating on flying! If anything causes a crash, that will be it!

    I'm talking about attacking me personally. Not the bird

    I have an annoying magpie trying to attack me today. Not sure if it is the same magpie which tried to attack me a couple of weeks ago when I flew my Cheerson CX-20. A few rock throws at it is enough to scare it away :p

    I'd throw a handful of "rocks" out the long end of a metal tube.

    Haha, this is Australia, not so easy for us to shoot lead.

    You Aussies can have air powered rifles correct? They make a bird shot for them now. I have a nice Diana RWS break barrel myself.

    All you need is an awesome wrist rocket slingshot. ;-)
    See Saunders Archery. They make great slings.

    I watched this video, on helifreak, gosh a couple of years ago, already. ;-)

    What a bloody mess. That will certainly leave a forever stain.
    I often find the odd tiny droplet of insect blood on my white props, but nothing in comparison.

    I unknowingly stepped onto a small fire ant mound in my yard back in the summer. Luckily I wasn't too far out so I just had to let my P3A hover while I ripped off my shoes and got the ants off my feet and ankles. That was interesting.

    Good grief, where do you live, man, in Africa?
    I only wear my SpYder RS-S rYding motorcycle boots while flying.
    So Never even a nibble! Or concern of one. Hahaha
    Hopefully they are snake bite proof as well!!
