    The problem happens when you hook a branch instead of the plane. Say goodbye to the drone.

    He’d have better luck getting a monkey from Ringling Brothers and have it go up and get the glider.

    Really, what exactly caused this accident?

    need a good drone that hovers very stable with a very good camera on it so you can hook it just right.

    maybe wait until the wind blows it down?

    or another option is tie something on the end of a rope and lasso the limb and shake the limb so it will fall out?

    I'm going back up in a few to see if it moved. It's laying on branches that are 90* to the wings so it going to be very difficult to try and lasso the plane and pull it down without pretty much destroying the plane. I just want the receiver out of it. The lipo battery is shot by now and that was a farely new battery worth about $30.

    I'm liking the monkey idea! If I could just find a monkey.....

    I came up the face of the rocks thinking that the up draft with send the plane up higher but instead, it stalled about 20ft above the rocks. I pulled back and it stuffed it self in the canopy of a 30ft tall tree. Totally my fault for sending it up the face with the wind. I was diving down the face like it was in slow motion. A total blast to fly there when the wind is coming from the west. A buddy that flies RC planes lives about 5 miles from high rock. You can see his place from the rocks. He's jumped more then 500 times off the face. He hang glides down to his house instead of the field they use to land in. The state stopped allowing hang gliders after a woman jumped and the wind tossed the glider upside down and into a tree killing her.
