It's kinda funny actually. I put a little video together:

Hilarious!  Who spotted the plane in the tree?  I'm sure your wife was pretty pleased to get her camera back...I imagine that's the last time we'll see onboard footage though.   ;) ;)

If you were in OZ instead of Canada I would say you'd built yourself a boomerang. :D

Good vid and glad to see you got the plane back.  :good:

Seriously, I'm not making this up!....

'Twas me that spotted it from my kitchen looking out the window the next day. The plane was all white, and the skies are white but I just barely could make out a circle in the trees. I first thought someone had put a satellite dish up there and it took about 5 seconds or so for the brain to kick in......
The truly amazing thing is I had just gone up 15 minutes earlier practically UNDER that same dang tree with my binoculars because you can see the bog area from there that I thought the plane had gone down in!

If anyone is interested in the plane you can see it built here:

Interesting looking aircraft. I have several friends who build & fly RC aircraft. I've passed this along to them.
