Two years ago.

Two years ago, I got this “Rocket Drone ZF7 With Folding” to review…

I was so excited to try it out. There’s a big open soccer field behind the school on top of hill at the end of our street. I started flying it and…

With it still hovering in place, I started to record video of my drone’s maiden flight. I touched the left joysticks and the drone started to drift away from me. Frantically, I started moving both joysticks to try to pilot the drone back in my direction. But the controls went completely unresponsive as the drone drifted towards tall trees just on the far side of the soccer goal in the photo above. I started to run after it hoping that if I got closer to it maybe I could regain some control of the drone. But I couldn’t get close enough in time and I watched it hit the top of one of the trees and drop to the floor of Parker Woods on the other side of a ten-foot chain-linked fence…

And it’s still out there somewhere…

Maybe someday I’ll try a different drone. Maybe one from DJI. But probably not any time soon.

Thanks for the memories, Timehop. 😐🦕❤️
