Well that was fun!

I just got back from visiting relatives in Illinois. While I was there, I went out to one of my relative's houses, which has a small field surrounded by very tall trees. I decided to try and fly my 3d plane out there (you know where this is going, dont you). Well, I was climbing straight up and then decided to do an elevator. I suddenly realized when I was doing the elevator, I was directly over the tallest tree in the area. Well, I didnt have enough time to react and it got lodged in a tree about 100' up. Its a sickening feeling when you have about $300 stuck in a tree (including your only bl motor). We (my dad, me and my uncle) tried many different ways to get it down. We even tried to blow limbs off with a 12 gauge . The way we finally got it down was by getting a string over the limb and we shook it out. I have to say, that was probably the most nerve-wracking hour that I have ever experienced.

Didnt have one. We could have blown the limbs off with my uncles deer rifle, but we decided that it was better not to rain pieces of lead at high velocity all over the county. Oh well, at least I got it out.
