Watch: Guy loses drone, rescues it with even bigger drone
It seems like drones are everywhere these days, but they’re still prohibitively expensive for a lot of people.
That’s why if you lose one, there’s a big financial incentive to retrieving it.
Well quadcopter enthusiast Harrisen Howes did lose his drone, but he had a genius rescue operation in mind that – fittingly – involved a second, larger drone.
“Two months ago, my roommate drunkenly lost my small drone on a neighbour’s roof,” Howes.
He adds: “Two months later, after upgrading to a larger drone, I attempted a rescue of the smaller drone using hooks I made from coat hangers.”

The rescue drone in question was a DJI Phantom 3 Professional, which typically retails between £1,159 and £1,399.
However, we’re a bit confused as to why Howes didn’t just borrow a ladder and retrieve the drone himself.
We’re also glad he didn’t.
