    Just mastering my UAV piloting skills. Work in progress. The UAV was caught by the tree after trying to correct itself and eventually fell victim. It was about 30 ft in the air stuck with no way to climb up. After a while we started shaking a smaller tree that just barely touched the bottom of the drone and it fell softly into my arms and worked just fine after a quick test flight. Lucky as all hell.

    That doesn't look like a landing failure (unless you were TRYING to land in the tree). Looks more like a "I was flying backwards and not looking in the rearview mirror" failure (a very common cause of crashes).;)

    I was making a joke. I know it was dumb. Not my proudest moment but thought it was funny since everything turned out all right in the end.
