Two Months ago my roommate drunkenly lost my small drone on a neighbors roof. Two months later after upgrading to a larger drone I attempted a rescue of the smaller drone using hooks I made from coat hangers. Here is the result.

Also would like to add that access to the roof wasn’t possible

which lead me to this haha.

Music used in this video is from Interstellar and the track is called “No time for caution” by Hans Zimmer”

Drone rescued was a Syma X5C and the drone that rescued it was a DJI Phantom 3 Professional.
