When [Harrison Howes] lost his Syma X5C drone on a neighbor’s roof, he thought all hope was lost. There was no easy access to get up there, and the neighbor wasn’t interested in him attempting a rescue. Months past, and [Harrison] got a new quad. And not just any quad — a DJI Phantom 3 Professional. It was time to attempt an aerial rescue operation!
Using some old coat hangers and some green painter’s tape for visibility, [Harrison] crafted two hooks to hang below the Phantom. He also tilted the FPV module straight down for maximum visibility of the rescue.
Set to the soundtrack of No Time for Caution by Hans Zimmer (from Intersteller), watch our hero deftly air lift his old quad off the roof and back to safety.
Nice work [Harrison]. But as one Reddit user points out rather jokingly:
Wait, did you spend $2000 to rescue your old drone instead of getting a ladder?
Yup. But anyone with a drone knows you can’t just have one. Oh, and as for his sweet slippers? His girlfriend got them for him. Or were they hers…
