Cameraman loses $15,000 Quadrocopter in Amazon rainforest

Amazon jungle from the sky

I lost a £30 remote shutter release once which annoyed me greatly so i couldn’t imagine what it would have been like to see a $15,000 Quadrocopter + $2000 camera flying off into the Amazon rain forest uncontrollably.

One of the controller sticks broke which made it fly off into the jungle. and before he knew it the rig was gone, Grim.
