Hello,

I am an arborist (tree surgeon) based in the Hampshire/Berkshire UK area. In the last few years I have had to rescue quite a few drones from the tops of trees whilst working in the UK and Europe and i always enjoy getting them safely back to their owner. So if anybody on here should need some help recovering their drone from a tree or other high places for a fair price please feel free to get in contact via my email address - [email protected] and I will be happy to give you a call and help.

If this post violates any forum rules or is in the wrong place could someone please inform me and I will do my best to correct it.

Thanks for reading.

Hi Rodpad

Thanks for the reply. The little grab you made from the wire is a great idea! From the videos that looks like a relatively straight forward rescue. I would always have to check the base of the tree to make sure it was safe enough to climb but from what I can see I am confident that I could retrieve that drone with no further damage. Did it fall out on its own in the end?

When it was in the tree, until the battery was to low, I could stop and start the motors, and view through the camera. Stop and start the camera recordings.

Bought a P3A, that is where I got the footage, never got the chance to retrieve it. One of the ideas I had, the phantom carry's the grabber connected to fishing line. The line would not be tied to the phantom (Looped like a pulley). Once I got it grabbed then I was going to fly the phantom down to the ground routing the line for the best pulling angle. This way if I grabbed the tree instead of the Phantom, etc. I could try again with another grabber and more line.

The tree tossed it, it was now in five pieces. :rolleyes:

That's a great idea. I guess the only risk is flying the other drone so close to where the first one got stuck? Was it salvageable in the end?
