by planetMitchLeave a Comment

    Our friend, Denver Riddle from Gorilla Grain (which you can see over on our superStore@planet5D) sent us this note yesterday and while it does have a DSLR in it, the sheer panic over losing $15k worth of gear somewhere in the Amazon rain forest is enough to send chills down your spine!

    $15K Camera Drone Helicopter Fly Away Crash in the Amazon Rainforest!

    Chris Newman of CineChopper and GORILLA GRAIN is an experienced RC Aerial pilot.

    While his day job is a dream, it isn't always easy and it sometimes comes with STRESS!

    During a big shoot in the Amazon for Animal Planet, Chris
    loses his expensive RC helicopter as it goes rogue and disappears above the tree canopy.

    From CineChopper:

    Sometimes gear fails you! This was our experience in Peru filming for animal planet!
