one a month maybe where I live, it is just the thought of these things becoming more and more, don't like them.
You're like the seagulls here on the coast, they don't like my Phantom 4 either. One kept following my drone the whole time I was in the area. Didn't make contact but buzzed my drone close enough several times that it set off collision sensor. Captured it coming close in this vid.

? DJI Mavic Air vs Mavic Pro - Analysis of ALL Reviews and Comparisons - YouTube
The vid is strictly to show the seagull near pass. BTW, I am now having to evaluate my online distribution process because of 4K video which can be huge. Even though I have cable, upload speeds are still much slower then their download speed. Downsizing and compressing can make them smaller but unfortunately they suffer many artifacts in the process.

Also, one fallout of the Mavic Air is that I am now seeing many more DJIs listed on local CL at very good to great prices. I don't know how this is in your location but those can certainly be compelling.

CLs not here, we have Gumtree and Ebay, the Phantoms are awesome for what they are...The Air minimises that but you have to accept less flytime and less range....i'll get an Air, it fits what i think i need at this point in time.

Funnily enough, that YT i posted was a combination of most of watch ive watched up to this point in time.

The progression of this style of image capture gets better and better each year, sure beats hiring a helicopter!

I would highly recommend getting at least two more batteries. At least 64GB 4K capable microSD cards. Prior to upgrading to my current Note 8, I had nagging issues with my Android phone running DJI GO4 ap while my iPhone has always seemed super stable.

That fly more combo is a worthwhile package.
