Quad stuck in tree

    So basically, lost control and now my quad is stuck in a tree, 40/50 ft high. Cannot throw a stick that high, no luck with a rope and hook for 3hrs, unable to climb the tree(very straight round, nothing to grab at reasonable height).

    Any ideas? Was a syma x5sw. Im guessing once rain comes it is lost.

    Any ladder I own, would not get me near a branch I can grab, or let alone feel safe doing so.

    Send another quad up to unstick it. What could go wrong.

    Maybe get a rope round one of the branches and try shaking it?

    It may be safer for you and everyone else if it stays up there.

    I thought it was a quad bike he was talking about 1stly ha, in fairness the freestyle nutjobs probably jump higher than 50ft on bikes ha.
