This story has a happy ending, and it's not just more evidence of how amazing the waterproof GoPro camera is.
(via Multirotor News)
can someone tell us what could have been recovered ?
i guess that with an automatic off system that would have turn the power off in water, there would be quite some chances to save the electronics after drying....
sounds like the ESCs have survived..
well great, you've now put a bit more fear on me about flying over water...
Yes it was fresh water and after drying electronics i think all electronics survived on that.
It looks like he ran out of power on battery. Tris, Quads, Hexas etc usually behaves like that when battery is running out. So be sure that you always have some reserves on the battery when landing. It is usually gyros/accelerometers that fails on low power situation. Sometimes it can be your ESC too but mainly it's your flight electronics that becomes unstable.
Nice catch thou... :)
