Wow,no you should not be climbing trees..however flew my Blade MQX yesterday after a great fly with the X1..disaster struck..flew over some trees lost orientation and landed in the golf course near by..in a sand bunker..thought turned off throttle-no I did not-each motor was buried in sand..the gears had sand stuck to them..good news stripped down and cleaned flys agan-to me always fly over grass

Put my Syma X1 in a white pine tree about 20' up.Tree is very dense,can't find it.The cowl came off and fell out of the tree.Looked for a week and a half and on a sunny morning found the tip of a white prop blade.Sorry, 20' isn't going to do it.

Maybe should climb the tree but it isn't mine and wife says an 81 year old should not be free climbing.Next day can't see where it is but later saw it again.Scratch one X1.As the time went on I fussed about loosing a quad.Wife says,"Didn't cost that much."Worry ,worry and the an idea comes to mind.

If I use my 19' golfball retriever should be able to reach.Not so.Need 10' more or less.Found an expandable cleaning handle.(9' long).Taped the two together and after much thrashing and poking where I thought the quad was it fell about 10'.Really wedged in there but after what seemed like an eternity the quad gently fell to the ground.Took it to the shop.It had been through 3 days of rain and two days of snow.

Total of about three inches and then melted.Removed control panel cover and blew out moisture.Set the quad up over my heater to finish drying.Note:The blades are subject to warping in too much heat.Dumb me.

Ruined a B blade.Had others on hand.Set up quad,plugged in new battery.Said a little prayer and miracle of miracles it bound to the tx.Hit speed control and all blades functioned.Straight up in a hover.Couldn't believe it.Put cowl back on and flew it for five minutes.


Now,is that one tough quad or what?The X1 may well be a wolf in sheep's clothing.Can you tell I like it?
