    chopper with a basket, hovering at tree top as you drop to your crash site, snatching the plane and securing it as they whisk you off to safety.
    don't forget to shoot the vid as it happens! lol

    That's right. I was up there trying to get it with some thin nylon string with a pair of lug nuts tied together. I got it to move after a few throws. The last throw was the worse. I didn't get a good throw at it and the nuts got stuck on a branch. I wrapped the string around my hand to give it a good hard pull and it shot out and hit me in the head and about knocked me out! Got a hell of a gash and a pounding head! Blood was dripping pretty good. Didn't have time to get a "daisy duke" shot with all the chaos. I did get a few before the hard hitting action started!

    Make yourself a long pole out of pvc pipe. Couple 4 or 5 or 6 sticks together then you might be able to poke it out of the tree. It may be a little difficult guiding the pipe as it will want to flex. To avoid too much flexing issues, maybe cut some 1x1x12s and screw them together to make a really long pole. Then the daisy duke girls will say "wow that guy's got a long pole".
