You will need to be pretty fit and handy with ropes to recover that bastard.


Use a drone.

If only we had a man of your intelligence at the crash site.   :biggrin: :biggrin:

Nah in all honesty i did get a couple of friends to offer trying to hook it with a drone. I don't want two drones stuck on the mountain which will probably happen.  :lol8: :lol8:

That photo was taken on a farm in Botswana, it's a photo of Luiperdpan. It's a 360 degree panoramic photo which can be used in Facebook or you can create a sphere photo like I did. Do a Google search for "360 degree turned into sphere", there are some great tutorials out there.

Here's a link to an example of how it looks in's 360: https://kuula.co/post/7k0hp

Not your typical drone shot...

But whales have been scarce, so chasing ski-boats at sunrise, makes for great panning shots

Did your insurance pay out with the fish eagle?

I lost my Mavic last year in the ocean chasing whales, insurance entertained the claim until they found it was airborne, then refused it due to all the small print... Only insured if on the ground/theft etc.

When I first got mavic I chatted to operator and other brokers and none where prepared to ensure during flight unless you had a RPL. Also none prepared to provide any liability cover.

Will let you now, at the moment busy with them.  Will inform you guys of the outcome.     :thumleft: :thumleft:

Insurance paid out minus my access, 10% of claim.   :thumleft:  They can keep my business for a while longer.    :biggrin:

Vis Arend, maybe it was mentioned before, but I assume you have a RPL otherwise the insurance would not have paid out?
