Guy Crashes Drone On Neighbor's Roof, Rescues It With Another Drone

Knocking on the door to get access to the roof? Getting a ladder? That is for the weak. Harrisen Howes found a more complicated but entertaining way to rescue his small drone, which his friend accidentally crash-landed on his neighbor’s roof, by using a larger drone and coat hangers.


And luckily he documented (and added the proper background music to) the entire operation:

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.

Also would like to add that access to the roof wasn’t possible which lead me to this haha.

MacGyver would be proud.

If shooting drones down is treated the same way as shooting at an aircraft, then crashing one into a house should be treated the same way as crashing a plane into a house.
