    Thanks to everyone who responded to my cry for help after I crashed my P3S into water last week. I've read a lot about not using the same battery when turning on your Phantom after a water crash. Is this time related? Ex. how long it was in the water? The time between it going in the water and the battery being taken out was probably about 1-2 minutes max. It, along with the Phantom itself, has also been sitting in rice for the past week.

    Should I be good to use the same battery?

    Lithium reacts with water violently. Lithium hydroxide and Hydrogen. Starter up and watch for a big a-- fireball potentially
