It was a little windy for the mcpx, and I lost control during inverted. The heli ended up on roof top of the 2 story high apartment. The main gear must disengaged from main shaft. I tried to spool it up again, but no luck.

I'm thinking about getting a fishing bow and fish it down. I saw heli fishing before, but never see fishing a heli. LOL

I think I would call 911
Why didn't I think of that? Wow, imagine cops and fire trucks show up and getting the mcpx down. That sure is the quickest to get it down. After that they hand me my heli together with a ticket that cost few grands. LOL...

Any, I woke up the next morning, thinking about reel it down with a fishing bow. Come to find out, the heli is not there anymore. It was a little windy last night and the wind might blow it down and someone found it or wind blow it into the gutter.

So I called the apartment maintenance and told the guy if he can get it down I will award him. Thinking of give him $20, if he can get it down. He say that he will try the next day.

It's been raining and I think the electronics are ruing anyway.

Dam, that sucks!! I try to stay away from any flat-roofs that I can't climb!!

I have crash landed on my home's roof a couple times, but the angle is pretty steep - each time I was able to just do a quick funky chicken dance and roll it right off.. But yeah, hope you get yours down OK.

I finally got it after 2 days of rain and snow. The maintenance man was nice enough to get it down for me. I will try to spool it up tomorrow after work.
