Flying drones is a thrilling experience until you inevitably crash. This drone pilot’s roommate crashed his drone on a neighbor’s roof. Using another camera and coat hanger-equippedPhantom 3, he was able to retrieve it in a scene fit for a James Bond movie.
Apparently the roof itself was inaccessible and a drone rescue was the only option. I’ve personally destroyed two Phantoms at this point and so this video brings a tear of joy to my eye.
Surprisingly, we were able to take a Phantom with us around the world twice filming with it for three months and it survived every dangerous situation we flew it in. You can check out a bit of aerial footage we got in Iceland in our video “A Drone In Iceland”:
