Damn, that was the luckiest pull back I've seen to date i think...I noticed someone on YT didn't think the camera got wet, well, there certainly was a splash at least

Let me embed that for you... next time, click the video icon, click past in the URL box then press return , JD

Wow! Lucky escape, you must have thought that was a dead drone.

Thanks. I dried the drone thoroughly immediately afterwards and performed a test flight and everything appears to be working perfectly.

That was very lucky indeed. I think you should go and by a lottery ticket.

Hopefully never for future use, but what was your drying method? Rice? Air?

And do you know just how wet it got?

Water was pouring out, battery, SD card, etc, was wet. After I got home I used a kind of flinging motion downward with the drone to get out as much water as I could physically, and there was quite a bit on the floor. At least a couple teaspoons full worth. Then I opened up the battery compartment and let a hair dryer on warm blow air through it for a while. Not very hot, but just warm air from about a foot away. Rotated it several times and let it dry good from various directions.

Great video - glad the earlier 'dip' caused no lasting damage.
Enjoyed the video of the bridge, was really quite good - the backing track was well suited, percussion reminded me of a train!
