How I use my drone to deploy my wire ham radio antenna

Have you tried using a drone to launch your wire antennas? Pat (N3GWX )has used drones to launch his HF antennas easily and efficiently. This is post 2272 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.
Here are a few observations from Pat as well as a list of equipment needed to launch your HF antennas to the tops of the tallest trees. Check out the view from above!

Here is the drone setup I use in order to deploy wire antennas on the ham radio. I drop a weight via remote release on my drone, then pull a polypropylene slick rope through the tree and then attach the wire antenna and pull it up. DJI Phantom 3 Drone (used on eBay $300) Top Race Drone Clip Remote Control Object Launcher (Amazon $25) Weaver Leather Throw Weight and Line Kit (Amazon $25) Throw line bag (New Tribe $23) Antenna supported by Hollow Braid Polypropylene Rope (3/8 inch)
