Phantom II Recovery With Marco Polo


Rich M. says: “So it’s 1.5 miles from home and last seen over the river. Not much hope in finding it but might as well take a drive with the Marco Polo tracker out the car window. After 5 minutes of driving I hear a beep on the Marco Pole and have a 17% signal. I pull over and get a direction pointer. Drive that direction and 35%, 50% and at 72% I run into this (dense woods loaded with poison ivy). I really don’t want to do this, but Marco Polo says its close and gives me the direction. About 40 ft. off the pavement I almost stepped on it! No Damage! All my aircraft have Marco Polo tracking devices mounted to them and my flight bag always contains a locator. I never fly without Marco Polo!
