OK guys you have every right to laugh at me for buying this piece of junk but my reasons were solid before I got a good look at it.
I bought these Floats not to land on the water but to make the MPP easy to recover for insurance if I crashed in to it as I do video friends in boats frequently.

However not only does it ship with Two of the necessary Collars not in the box but is constructed in such a way that the forward mounting Lug blocks the First Down Position Sensor which causes the drone to think it is close to the ground and go into an unwanted climb/loss of control and give you a Hair-raising "VPS failure land as soon as possible" Message.

It goes straight in the Bin, another waste of the World's resources.

I fitted the GETTERBACK instead.

That rig looks heavy, I saw one on Amazon that uses inflatable pontoons, it looked like wind would really be a problem. Haven't really seen a good design yet.

Yes it is heavy at just over 3 ounces and not securely mounted so an impact on the surface at speed would prolly rip it off.

And yes, it could only be used to film on calm days plus I am sure the Camera will "See" the front of the Floats when turning as the MP Auto-Yaws the camera in the direction you wish to turn so that you get a better view of where you are going. (This can be disabled in Settings.)

Do a search for waterbouy, had a quick look and looks ideal for something small like the mavic, just need to work out how to attach it securely.
