Well, that was a short experience.

I took my drone over to my friend's house over the weekend, was showing off the drone.

Figured I would teach him how to fly and let him give it a go.  He's a pretty quick learner and had a ton of fun flying it around the yard.  After a quick stop to make sure that the camera was working fine, we swapped out the battery for one last flight.  I thought that maybe he should get a view of the sunset over the trees.

So, he flew up, and the wind caught it.  He tried to fight it, but it just disappeared over the woodland.

So, that's a drone, a battery, and an action cam with some probably good footage.  I spent the better part of an hour looking for it this afternoon where I thought it might have crashed, but no luck.

If you find it, please do the right thing.

The next one will have GPS hold - I promise.

Fast forward 3 days.  Just got a text from Kim, someone found it. It's been returned with 3 broken props, a cracked camera, and a scuffed battery.

Not too bad.
