Default An "Incredible" Story

This is so awesome.

This summer I was flying my RC airplane. I wanted to get some high altitude video so I strapped my DINC to the bottom of the plane.

After flying around at a high altitude for a while, my plane got too far away and I lost control with my transmitter. It proceeded to fly away and crash somewhere in a cornfield.

Having NO CLUE how to find my expensive plane and my beloved DINC, I ran home and activated LOOKOUT which was installed on my phone. It showed me on google maps where the plane was along with the coordinates.

I called my buddy who has a geocaching app on his phone.We put in the coordinates, drove to the cornfield, parked on the side of the road and walked into the cornfield, following the instructions of his phone.

We found the plane/DINC - both were fine, and the phone was within 5 feet of the posted coordinates! Without the app, there's NO WAY I would have found the plane/phone.

thats a good story, its another reason why i have lookout installed on my phones.

glad you found your plane and phone, flying those planes must be alot of fun, you should attach some sort of "weaponry" to it and see if you can duck hunt ^_^
