  • Why in gods green earth would you not try to recover the drone, especially when you where able to see it! Big mistake…

  • Oh man! I know how you feel! I almost lost a cheap toy grade drone, got to the point of almost giving up looking for it, was about to leave it, then I found it! The elation was incredible 😎 I would find it really hard to leave a drone I could still see in a tree though!! I would be back quickly with a long stick or branch, some rope or string and make a hook or loop and hook it out of the tree!! That was tough leaving it there!

  • HELLO FROM IRELAND. VERY SORRY TO HEAR YOU LOST YOUR MAVIC AIR. I LOST MANY OF HELICOPTERS AND DRONES IN MY 15 YEARS OF FLYING. GOD BLESS YOU AND I HOPE ALL WORKS OUT FOR YOU. EAMON.

  • Hi, sorry for your loss. I share your pain as 2 weeks back i also lost my mavic air due to high winds when i was flying it over a hilltop. Just like you, despite knowing all the thumb rules still somehow i became overconfident and committed few mistakes and lost my drone.

  • Bummer. You know me…. I would not leave that drone in the tree. Not if I could see it. Haha

  • Sorry to hear you lost your drone. I won't give you the "this is what I would have done" speech. But I bet somebody has your drone. If it is bright red. Somebody wanted it worse than you.
    Try Craigslist.
    Offer reward.
    Best of luck.

  • 我喜歡你談到航拍的自由感那一段,並且很遺憾再一次聽到你失去了航拍機。如果有機會,希望你能再度來到台灣旅行,拍攝更多的影片。

  • Good for you to be positive.
