Missing GoPro Found 1.5 years later!

The Story of My Lost GoPro. Almost a year and a half ago I was would flying my Quadcopter with my Hero 3 Silver mounted on the bottom trying to capture some ariel shots. I had the GoPro wifi turned on and after a few minutes of flying the Quad became unresponsive and crashed in a near by field. I searched for hours and days in 90 degree weather crawling on my hands and knees looking down each row of beans. I never did find it and wasn't even sure I was looking in the right place (being I never seen it go down). I finally gave up all hope of ever seeing it again. After 1.5 years of being in the GoPro Waterproof housing the local farmer found it and brought it to me. I removed the memory card and everything was still there. The camera itself didn't look to bad, but after cleaning it up and trying to power it up I could only get a few LED's to light up but thats all.

Yep... pretty dizzy!

Congrats on the recovery and kudos to the farmer for getting it back to you after all this time. Well done!
