I'm tired of the beer cooler look of foam.

Real full scale gliders often look exactly like the color of the Radian though.. So at least it is not totally unrealistic to leave it white..

I've called the County and let them know about it, went around and brought the fire dept back with their ladder truck, but the ground is too soggy for them to drive onto and just got off the phone with a professional tree climber who's coming around tomorrow to get it down for me. I just hope that my CamOne Infinity doesn't get damaged from the frost, because I didn't have it in it's divebox. Btw...If you look at the vertical stab closely, you'll see that there's a branch in between it and the rudder, so, no wind's going to get that down...unless it's a tornado. But anywho...even us professionals, on occasion, tree's a plane or two.

One problem with the split rudder is that it is the perfect place for a thin branch to wedge itself and keep the Radian in the tree. I have one in a tree since late august and it is still hanging by the rudder with a branch stuck in the slot formed by the split rudder.

I looked into a tree climber and he wanted about $250. I don't have any expensive fpv or camera gear so I just bought a replacement.

Yep and just think, my rudder is modified, so it's really lodged in there, but I've been planning on buying a new fuselage and servos, because I've had this one for 5 years now.

You could get a quadcopter and tie some fishing line to it and fly it up over the tree, then tie some heavier rope to the line, and get that over the tree, then shake the crap out of it.

If you get it on that exact branch, the plane will probably come out with the right amount of shaking. Might even be able to pull that branch down, or break it off..


Or tie a rock onto some string and throw it up there, or whip it up there by swinging the string and letting the rock go at just the right time. I got one up about 65 feet that way.. Got my Dromida VISTA out of a tree that was WAY up there.

It's worth a try anyways..
