Already fixed!
But that same tree insists in jump in front of our planes. I already complained about that bad behavior tree with the park ranger...

Hmmm. Did you pull the branch down or did you pull the plane through the branches? In my experience pulling down the branches will free the plane without breaking anything. That is unless it hits the ground unlucky. The slingshot with the wire is pretty ingenius. I normally try to climb the tree and pull at the base of the branch that is keeping the plane hostage .

Still it is better to fly in an area without many trees.

Well here if one police officer in the park is passing by and see you pulling a branch or trying to climbing the tree, you can end your adventure with a good fine lol, because it is a public park and the rangers like the trees more than our planes.

Hi Nelson,

Luckily we don't have that strickt rules over here. It probably would be a strange thing to see a grown up climbing trees but I don't think there would be a big fine to pay. It probably depends on the police officer who spots you. So in your case, I admit, the rope with the slingshot (which is illegal over here by the way ) is the best solution.
