    Ok, I know you're all shaking your heads at the dumba** stuff people do(and you're quite welcome to quit laughing at any time :roll: )

    Once I get ALOT more practice flying, I want to take this thing out on the pontoon and fly around the lake. I know that hitting the water will be curtains for the phantom, however I tested this out in the pool, and it does float pretty dang stable.
    At least if I would happen to dump it in the water, it definitely would not sink. Weight added is very, very little, but I'm sure it will catch a lot more wind.
    This was done using one of those noodle floats.
    Ok, I'm braced in my chair, lemme have it!-lol

    Face palming........That's funny :D . While it looks VERY NICE ;) it's been done hundreds of times. It will interfere with the downward prop air flow and cause instability. If it crashes into water, it will end up upside down. It will float, of course, so you can retrieve it, 50/50 as to whether it will fly again. I like the colours :) .
