Treggon and Mike hiked into the canyon with me on the mission to get my quad back....I was all prepared with my custom retrieval pole from home depot...we get to the crash site and im looking up to where the quad was the day before...

Well it wasnt there!! damn...all is not lost though...i just happened to look to my right and up just a bit and what do ya know.....there she is hanging at EYE LEVEL!!

I was so damn stoked that all i had to do was reach up a few feet and grab her down...

So im sure the burning question everyone has is what the damage report is...
So both my flight battery and fpv battery are a total loss...voltage was too low and my charger didnt like that....
The clover leaf and sma connector for the Vtx got ripped off and i didnt want to go through the 2 feet or so of dead leaves looking for it...probably would've only found a lot spiders and ticks...easily replaced.
2 broken props...

Everytthing else is in once piece and seems to be in working order...gonna plug in a fresh battery here in a few and test my naza to make sure it is still good to go...should be though....

Ok and here are some pics...still need to go through the video so i will have that up later.
love the ht-fpv frame! they really are damn near bullet proof,and if u do manage to break an arm they are easily plastic welded back together! im sure ur naza is fine! i dumped mkine in the ocean and didnt find it for over an hour and dried it out and flew it for months after till i lost it recently(never fly fpv without a dvr or locator of some nature!) expensive lesson learned!! glad to see you got ur rig back!

If you are willing to spend a little bit of money the naza is a good fc like i said....and if you really want ...i have that extra one id be willing to sell if you are interested...its everything you want in an FC...but let me know,,

if it would help make up your mind we could meet up and you could test fly my quad with my other naza on it....

but if you are trying to stay on semi lite budget...then the kk2 is good...
Yes I'm on a smallish budget. KK2 It is then.
It would be nice to see quads in real life. I'll try to make it out to Sorrento one day.

Before providing moral support, and taking a photo for Kyle of him and his quad (hard work finding that quad lemme tell you), I found Kloner's toy boat he lost video link with a few weeks back. It floated over to Dave's beach, and Nieder and I had fun playing with it.

@kloner...

If you have some of those side mount sma connectors...i will take one....I'm not even sure where i would find them...maybe that specialty cable shop next to the hobby shop in Kearney mesa?....but I'm sure they are over priced there....

Let me know...i might need help soldering it back on and i may even enlist your help makinga new ....antenna.

if you're interested in a bit more functionality with room to expand if you choose check out the Crius All in one pro. Rc timer has them on sale for 50 bucks and you can easily put Megapirate NG (Arducopter) on it.

http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?gOo...5&productname=

you could later get a GPS, Sonar, etc, if youwant to.

I bought one and loaded Arduplane on it for my flying wing. I got it all set up last night and am ready for maiden. Now that they're $50, i'm going to buy another for my tricopter.
