There are five Drone Fail posts. Best to read them in order, even though they are not actually in order on the blog. From top to bottom they go #4, #5, #3, #2, #1. This happened because #4 and #5 were posted on the same day and thus got flipped.
This bit has taken me away from posting pics of stuff at the FCRE. Agreed, recovery of the drone was necessary, as it is key to some important new aspects of the really amazing mapping we have done here. Can't have your tools sitting on top of a tree.
But I do have some very cool pics yet to come, not of dudes in trees, but critters. Stay tuned.
