In the world of drone flying, sometimes things don’t always go as planned. But for one San Diego local, a rooftop rescue operation proved to be a great success.
The pilot, known as timmydfpv on Reddit, shared a video of his successful drone rescue on a Reddit thread titled “Successful rooftop rescue! No kwad left behind!!” In the video, timmydfpv can be seen flying his drone, but unfortunately ends up landing on a rooftop instead of flying through a gap as he intended.
But instead of giving up on his drone, timmydfpv came up with a clever solution - he used his extra Ethix neck strap to rescue his drone. He attaches the strap to his transmitter, then lowers it down to the rooftop where his drone is stuck. After a few attempts, he successfully grabs the drone and pulls it back up to safety.
The video quickly garnered attention and praise from the drone community on Reddit, with many impressed by timmydfpv’s quick thinking and ingenuity. Some even joked about what he would have done if he had ended up with two drones stuck on the rooftop.
While drone accidents can be frustrating and even costly, this video serves as a reminder that with a little creativity and resourcefulness, even the most challenging situations can be overcome.
