Tough as nails

So working a few days back scanning bathymetry and I had a bit of a mishap. Our Herelink is on a carbon telescoping pole that extends about 20’. With a link to the computer and a joystick, it allows me to minimize fresnel zone interference (and stay in the airconditioned truck as it’s freaking hot out lol). Temperatures were getting close to 40c, I guess enough to minimize the vacuum in the suction cups holding the pole. Pole releases and the Herelink goes along for a fast ride to the ground. I honestly thought there’d be nothing left. Other than a bunch of sand in the gimbal, it never missed a beat. These things are tough. There’s no getting lucky with that kind of fall. Even better, my Herelink 1.1 doesn’t freeze up! Sure glad that got sorted.
