So my little guy went wandering today. I was out about 2200 feet and up maybe 350 feet zooming around the desert. Perhaps I got too close to Phoenix Sky Harbor? But suddenly my little guy severed all connection to home base. He never came back at all. I suspect an auto-land kicked in which makes me lean more towards a flaky battery but I really have no idea. I knew the general direction and my GPS narrowed the search. Finally after half an hour I found it. Mainly because it's lights were still blinking. Very skillfully perched on a small flat rock. Right in Papago Park. Only minor problem... it was hundreds of feet in the air on the tip top of the arch at "Hole in the Rock". Although the drone was blinking I couldn't establish any connection or control or even get the rotors to fire up. If you have ever been there you know there are stairs on the back side of the mountain up to the hole but from there to the top of the hole... well it's way past my abilities. It looks easy in this picture but the scale of the mountain is deceiving. I did try. I went towards the left and made some progress. Sadly my feet slipped and I ended up stuck up there crying like a little girl for a while until I slid down to safety. Lucky for me a friendly amateur rock climbing park ranger happened by. He walked up there, picked up the drone and bounced back down like a mountain goat. Amazingly cool to watch. The video shows some glitched out MP4's, a bit of bouncing around and an hour of sitting on a rock facing a cliff so I don't even have any great video to show for my efforts. But the drone (and I) are safe and sound and back on the deck sipping a coffee. Well.. me. The drone is sipping electricity.
