I was record nice river shots and then sensors was reflects altitude wrong? from water surface, it was lifting itself up and hit the trees above it. Motors was stopped and my inspire falling in to river. It was there about 2minutes before i found it. And all others videos are in to Sd-card but not that crash video. Today i was flying it, GPS not working anymore so i cant hoover it and fpv/X5s camera wont work either. All motors are ok and i can fly. Only the best video (crash) are missing.

I've had similar issues over water and also think turning the bottom sensors work. They can't tell whats going on due to the water and cause the drone to move up and down.

Sorry to hear about your crash, hope you get it sorted!

How to turn off bottom sensor? Does the app still gave the correct AGL reading above water?

If Inspire 's sensor is still providing accurate AGL reading, pilot should still be able to fly above water using AGL reading. Or that presumption is wrong or not reliable either.

Isn't the AGL reading from the point that the aircraft got gps lock? Or home position?
