    Keas and falcons might pose a problem in areas I want to use it.
    Might have to mount a coaxial defence system on it.

    You wouldn't want to leave it parked up with pesky Kea's around - would ya
    I be surprised if Falcon or the likes would actually hit it (on intent) ????

    Been interesting to see how you find it mate, the few times I've seen one used the deer reacted like it was a gunship coming in culling,
    Lots of altitude helped but then ya couldn't see in any great detail.
    Maybe these newer ones are quiter?

    Only if I can get the Blue Thunder stealth mode

    I would probably crash it if I did see a naked sunbather. Unless I can fly it with one hand of course

    Won't use it to look at animals so much other than to confirm say a Bull downed in a risky area that has fallen out of sight.

    More for scouting new country and flying around scaring all the Thar off the hill before the AATH guys can get to them

    Beautiful bird !!

    Was working on a swing bridge near a rock outcrop they were nesting on. Had to wear a hard hat with a chin strap as they would knock it off
