If it falls in the water it will save you weeks of searching that forest for its dead, broken carcass. Best for a clean parting

Thank you, still learning.  I know it will be a total loss regardless, but it still nags at me when I'm out over water.  I fly between 300 - 400 ft at the farm almost daily without any thought beyond keeping it safe and within my skill level, and it still creeps in when I get out over water.

My daughter on the other hand just got a P2V for her first non-indoor type quad and she has no fear.  She flies carefully with full attention on the aircraft and well within current regulations.  The first time we went out exploring together she did her pre-flight's, calibrated and headed out over the lake we were at right after take off.  I asked her if she was sure she was ready to fly over water, she said the same thing, it doesn't matter if it crashes in the lake or into the boat ramp, it's gone either way.

It is probably safer while over water, less things to hit too
