This was the first day with the Spark so I'm still getting used to the controls of a drone vs an RC plane. I'm **** impressed with the gimbal on this little unit though!

Is that deer your pet? Looks like you got real close to it and it wasn't even "spooked"

Not quite a pet but it's outside mowing my lawn for me right now! Got much closer to a cow elk with the spark yesterday evening. She held her ground much more. I'd guess I flew within 2 feet of her (elk) nose and she never moved.

As a former wildlife officer let me advise not to get too close to these elk in case your Spark crashes and you want to retrieve it before they step on it. Elk (or Moose) aren't really afraid of anything for good reason as they can stomp to death any creature that walks this earth and do when provoked.

I would agree with your statement Jim. The elk was more curious than spooked quite honestly.
