How to free your S2 when it gets stuck

Been re-reading the Beacon manual and it seems that Beacon is ideal for "steering" out of a situation when the S2 gets trapped in over hanging trees.

The manual is well written and it specifically notes how to move left or right, up or down or "forward" when trapped.

Being able to move "backward" however doesn't seem to be an option when using the Beacon.... confirmed by Billie Kyle in one of his S2 videos.

What options do you then have?? ... Land and relaunch somewhere more open.... any other solutions?

If it is still tracking the beacon, can you just maneuver the Skydio by walking to a position behind it? Making it turn to follow you?
Seems you can free the trapped S2 by just using the Skydio Button on the Beacon as described on page 8 of the Beacon manual under the section entitled Wand Controls.

Good luck using the wand if you are stuck in tight place like tree top, and it's hard to see.
I hope they add track back feature so it can back out and find better route.
