As some of you know, I am experimenting with using a drone, or quadcopter, as a viable way to hang antenna supports in trees. As there is a decent amount of interest, I will describe my progress here.
The initial concept thus far is to use the drone to carry a 1oz. fishing weight in a small bucket. The weight will be tethered to a reel of 30# fishing line which the drone will pull out as needed. Once the desired limb/tree is overflown the drone will be turned 180 degrees, and the line payout stopped. The drone will then back away, and the line will pull the weight from the bucket. This will leave the drone free to navigate safely back to the ground.
I will add pictures and progress updates as I get them.
Comments and suggestions are welcome.
