UFO Quadcopter Stuck in Tree

On Saturday, I got my new UDI RC U816A UFO Quadcopter 2.4Ghz stuck in a neighbor tree while demonstrating the drone to some family members. I should have known to keep the drone to a low altitude. This is the second time it has gotten stuck in a tree. The day after Christmas it got stuck in a tree on Cape Cod.

Here's the video of the drone taking off on my porch and then getting caught in the neighbor's tree.

Here's a video of me and my brother getting the drone out of the tree. We used a combination of my Pool Telescoping Aluminum Pole and the roof rack. Based on the size of the tool used, we estimate that the drone was at least 20 feet up in the tree.

If you are playing with the UDI RC U816A UFO Quadcopter 2.4Ghz (Model NO.U818A) make sure to test flight in an open field. Buy plenty of extra batteries, Li-Po Battery 701855 500 mAh 3.7V. Each battery only last 7 minutes of flying time and that's hardly enough time to learn how to maneuver the drone. You can find extra batteries on Amazon and eBay.
