    Default DOES ANYBODY LIVE NEAR VALLEY FORGE PARK

    if you do, and travel 252 near the flying field, i have a plane stuck in a tree across from the entrance of the flying field.
    if you see that the plane has fallen out of the tree and is still there (not stolen) can you grab it for me? i would really appreciate it. i would like to salvage the electronics. pm me.. thanks, bogey

    I go by there every day on my way home. I will be happy to look for it for you. It is dark now though at 5:15 when I get there.

    How high up is it? I am pretty good at slinging a rope with a huge bolt tied to the end.

    thanks dan, its about 75' up or so. someone from the signal seekers called today and said hes going to try to find someone with a bow and shoot it down.
    what they do is tie a string around the arrow, blast it through the plane and yank it down (in many pieces), all im after is the servos, receiver, battery..

    if your going towards 202 on 252, the tree will be on your left about 50yrds before the entrance to the field. its red and white with black stripes on the underside of the wings.

    I was going to say I have a ladder and would be glad to get it for you, but 75'? Uh, sorry, no can do! Good luck, though.

    Saw it today and you are right it is stuck as tight as it could be. The tail rudder is jammed down tight in the crook of that "Y" section of the branches.

    Don't think rope alone will do it.

    I will keep driving by and let you know what I see!!

    thanks dan, yeah i didnt get a call today so i figured it was still up there.
    i was just down the basement bench testing the motor, still works great..
    damn i miss flying that thing, today would of been perfect.

    looks from one of the pics, the mono coat is missing on the one wing, maybe the guys tried shooting it down but couldnt get it.

    thanks for the pics, with my phone you couldnt see it..
