    Well, kids this is ugly.

    But .....it's almost free, simple to do, and it flat out works.
    Total weight is 8 grams. You can apply it, do your flight over water, and throw it away afterwards.
    I can see no difference at all in performance or flight time.

    I can now fly over water without having a panic attack in fear of losing her.
    Yup, she'll get wet, But I will get her back.

    Good idea, but I would think that any decent impact would tear the ziplock bag off pretty easily.

    Better to get over your fear and just fly.

    Well I'll be dammed. You should make a high visibility one that self inflates. That would be great! Demo looks promising. ;)
