Default Brand New Quadrocopter In a tree

So... Figured you all would appreciate this.

I bought my first quadrocopter yesterday. Retail grade drone. actually really nice. skyviper V950. I clearly thought my xmod driving skills would carry over... haha.

On its maiden voyage last night, I decided to see how high it could go. long story short it got out of range and I was flying it very badly. it started it's auto landing procedure, and wound up 60ft in the air stuck in a tree. the ONLY tree in a MASSIVE field 300 feet from the takeoff spot. today... I tried reaching it with my window cleaning pole. (30ft) not even close. then the fire station is next door and (lol) a couple of the guys came out and tried helping, they threw a nerf football at it and the football got stuck. then i went and bought a real football.. and he tried again.. now there is one quadrocopter and two footballs in this Bermuda triangle tree. If it brakes no worries, its under warranty. but i need the copter in order to get a new one! ahhhhggg! #lifeishard anyway

figured you would enjoy the read.

WELL! if you take your time with it, and practice low to the ground you get the hang of it.. its not like a car where you can just floor it and steer left and right.. lots of sliiight movements of the controls. it is sooo much fun though! dont do what I did and say on its maiden voyage, "hmm how High can it go??" bad things will happen. haha
