Lost Twice in Dense Forest

for Scott – Colorado Springs, CO

Twice I’ve lost my Phantom Vision+ in dense forest and successfully tracked it for about a mile using Marco Polo.

I’m currently using the tracker on my DJI S900 and Inspire 1. … Continue Reading

Flyaway Ends Up in Brambles

for Andy J-L

A colleague and I were out flying our fixed wing test-bed aircraft today and we had a fly-away. We saw the aircraft out about three quarters of a mile from us – it spiraled downwards and we saw it disappear into a tangle of brambles, long grass, underbrush, and trees. Fortunately, we had a fully charged Marco Polo tag on the aircraft.

Long story short, it worked like a champ. … Continue Reading
