As much as I hate to I'm gonna have to confess my mistake....that cost me 150 bucks to rectify.....in the hope that it might help someone else. Friday afternoon, after a day of very gusty winds, a lull convinced me that I could get in a couple of flights on my Phantom V 1.1.1., in my back yard where I routinely fly. I was just doing a few laps over the trees, with plenty of clearance I thought, when a sharp downdraft put it in the top of a sycamore tree...more than 100 feet up. After spending The whole weekend trying to find someone who was crazy enough to climb up there and get it, I finally got a tree service to come out and send a guy up there to retrieve it late this afternoon. After spending two nights and three days of decent, but cool , weather up in the tree, the Phantom fired right up and flew like a champ and the GoPro seems to be fine. The only casualty of the fiasco was the battery which ran completely flat and refused to accept any charge. Moral to the story.....dont be a dumbass and think that you can outsmart Mother Nature !
