If it is upside down it will likely not arm the motors.

It's likely the motors shut off in "emergency" mode when the props hit the branches. I don't know about the Mantis, but for other Yuneec drones you have to manually turn power off and back on to allow motor start.
You could try a fishing pole and a weighted line. You would have to get really lucky, but it worked once for me.

Had several drones stuck in "Hungry" trees. Best luck was with a bean bag type device,actually it was a dog trainer device,. On a long length of light clothesline . I tried to get it under the drone and shook the crap out of the branches. Finally got lucky,all came down at once. You can you tube as there are some funny ways to try. You need to get it before the leaves come out. One of mine blew down by itself. Another time my Q500 got lost. We looked in trees for a month. Farmer found it in his corn last fall.. Good Luck K.C.
