I don’t know if they still make them anymore, but there was a time back in the day where I would only ever fly over water with a Getterback attached. Designed for fishing rods but worked great on drones too :blush:

I’d be sad if I lost a drone too :confused:

It’s ok as I just said to my mate across the rd , I’m alive ! The drone is replaceable but maybe at a cost :man_shrugging:t2: See what the insurance come back with !
I need to stop running before I can walk , it wouldn’t let me cancel ( force land ) otherwise I could of made it to the other part of dry land I think.
Thanks

I know you can buy those little float things , to late now , I’m going there with my mate the wkd with our magnets , lol , it’s an old quarry so it does go deep in places , I know it would be useless but would love to get it back

Sorry for your loss, but dont despair!!! The electronics and motors will take more abuse than you think!!!
Get out and find the bird, dry it out and I bet she flies again, the camera might be donald ducked as the sensor isn’t easily accessible for a clean up. Point is if you can find it, it will be salvageable, even if only for spare parts for the next one!!!
