    That was BackLashRC piloting - I mentioned that and he said it was nerve wracking!! But being I was in the Kayak and he had WaterBuoys onboard I would have rescued it too

    Speaking of rescues, after the crash of that beloved QAV500 I purchased the remaining parts (Rescued) and am putting it back together for future rescue missions!

    I'd say that this is one of the most epic rescues ever. This is from 5 miles out. * pops collar * Sentry is a beast with this whole FPV thing.

    Well I hope I have a successful rescue tomorrow. Just crashed on top of a remote rock formation at Red Rocks park and my first attempt to retrieve the plane went disastrously when I knocked my glasses off while climbing around looking for the plane and spent several hours searching for them instead. Now after 5 minutes on Google Earth I know exactly where the plane is. I just need to go back and climb up and retrieve it tomorrow.

    The new one. But I got a warranty on this one in case it's smashed. I'm leaving to go look for it again shortly. Wish me luck!
