i5 crashes from 400 ft


Recommended Posts

I replaced an intake manifold gasket on a ship tonight then adjusted the fuel servo mixture and set the throttle. Then I took my wife for a quick spin over town. She dropped her phone while taking a photo at 400ft and 75 kts. We tracked it using its gps and find my iPhone app. Took us right to it... On the roof of the Schwann ice cream distribution store... Got a ladder and the owner climbed up and retrieved it for us. Still worked just smashed the screen and it was still on tracking and making sounds....amazing

That's pretty cool. You're lucky. I've had pax drop 2 in the last few months, haha, but ended up in the lake :lol:

If they had life proof cases they might get them back!!! ;)
