Had to perform a drone rescue mission recently. My 7 yr old crashed his drone on the roof of the house the other day. And instead of doing the smart thing and using a ladder I decided to use the phantom 3 for the job. I found a piece of 3ft long parachute cord and an old d clip to make my rig. I had to fly the roof top completely by camera. Which made for an interesting task. The wind was blowing at gust of 8mph but seemed stronger as the roof line created a lot of turbulence. On the third try the wind picked up and sent the phantom to the edge of the roof where my hook clipped on to the gutter. At that point panic set in but I was able to get enough slack in the cord to release. On the 4th try I grabbed his drone and took a victory lap around the neighborhood. Thought some of you would get a kick out of it.
