I did notice next error (No Dataflash inserted) with my 3DR APM2.5.2 when loading an Arducopter firmware.

I did fly my copter on top of water (fountains in a park) and at some moment copter felt down in water (my mistake).
It was a Hero2 installed and running on the copter.
I did not have the water case for hero2, just the lens protection from LayerLens (l
I did notice some modification on 3DR store shipping price to Canada comparing to couple with months ago.
I did order an APM couple of months ago and I did pay shipping to Canada (QC) like $10, using USPS.
