I said the X1 is a tough bird.

Last year I was flying an X1 at night.It was lighted but depth perception being what it is in total darkness, I ended with the quad in a huge pine about 70' in the air.Never could see it in daylight.My reaction was a lost bird.

I always checked when I passed by the pine but it wasn't coming down.cry

Three days ago we had some hellish winds.I was passing "the tree" and there was the X1.Sitting on the ground just as if I had landed it there.All parts were there.No structural damage.I picked it up and stared.Didn't believe it.A year in that tree during a really snowy and very cold Ohio winter.Plus up there during a spring, summer and wet fall season.

Would it ever fly again?Took the X1 home gave it some tender loving care.Oil,wipe down,dried out circuit board.Bound it to a transmitter and powered it up.Miracle!!!!It came straight up and flew as if it had been with the other birds all that time.

I told you,"It is one tough bird."

Sounds familiar !!!! Anyone on this forum for more than 2 years can

skip this entry......( anyone working for SYMA, PLEASE READ THIS!!) 

   Lew, congrats on recovering your heli. I had the same situation

occur in August 2 years ago with my first S32. I lost it in a neighbor's

tree, and despite countless hours looking for it, figured it was gone.

2 months after the disappearance, I bought another one because I

did like that heli and was fun to fly. 

  Long story short...after the leaves came down in late October or early

November, neighbor said he found it and I went in for the rescue.

My S32 was hanging tail-up,nose cone down. I grabbed a ladder and took it home.

Nose cone was full of water and a spider nest, but cleaned it up, let everything 

on a paper towel to dry, and the next day. I put it all back together. I hate to

admit it, but after I put the canopy back on, I waited 15 minutes before plugging in!

Spiders werent too happy. Today it flies fine with the original battery that was exposed 

to your neighbors Pennsylvania's weather elements here!

  After my experience with that, and reading your post, I just can't say enough about

the quality of SYMA products! Only thing wrong was replacing the canopy and

tail-dec screws which rusted.
