Sentry, that's awesome. Here's a Google Map of potential locations. Anyone can access and edit:

Is it weird that I glance in the field by my office every morning to see if the quad finally returned to home?

Posted flyers at the entrances to Cumberland mall, and gave them to their landscapers, the Mariott Courtyard, Huber building, and a few other places on this side of the road. Hoping the flyovers will happen today if it works out...

Did you check those bushes REAL good around that parking deck. Reason I ask is that I flew my FPV micro quad into some bushes in front of my house and it took me 30 mins to find the thing and i knew it was there....I still had a video picture too and still had a hard time finding it.

Keep an eye on craigslist too.....look for gopro for sale.

I have combed those bushes several times but can't exactly rule them out. I've crawled under and through the tall ones, have looked though them at parking deck level, and on all sides. I suppose it's not impossible that it's wedged in there somewhere but I've done my due diligence looking through them. That said, I'll definitely look again.

I wish that were the case :-)

Haven't heard if the flyovers are gonna happen today but one of my coworkers sent me pictures today that he took of the last flight and feels somewhat confidant that he watched it go in the trees by my parking deck. I've been looking in them for the last three hours with binoculars but don't see it. Argh!

Can I pay someone to come out with their rig for a look? The alternative seems to be buying another rig to look for the old one, but that doesn't feel like the wisest course of action.

It was a weird site today being the only one on my floor who was visibly excited to hear the weather sirens going off while my coworkers were looking for cover. I think this search is starting to get to me. Earlier today I started listening to Nick Drake albums and contemplated growing my hair long.

I did slog around outside for a little while after the storm passed to see if anybody the local trees regurgitated my quad. Didn't see it around the office but plan to look further out tomorrow afternoon. I did manage to clear a few more roofs with binoculars and phone calls and will be updating the Google Maps list accordingly.

I did get around to loading the GoPro flight highlights I took the day before the fateful flight and will upload them later.
