    Hello guys, just wanted to share a product that can help you save your Phantom if it falls in a body of water.

    It's a little hard to explain, but here is a video explaining how this small device can help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDHHLnAdxsc

    Also, here is the website where you can order. USA shipping is free and international is $6 anywhere in the world. I have also set up a coupon code for Forum members, you get 5% off each item purchase: www.savemyphantom.com and the code is: forum

    We are available for live chat now through the website.

    Slick. Just wish it would take less time to deploy.

    I agree. Just saw a comment of a guy saying he recovered his GoPro without the waterproof housing from saltwater after 4 hours and the SD card worked. May be a little extreme, but not all that uncommon. One guy had his Phantom submerged for a a couple minutes, dried everything off and it all worked the next day.

    7.5 min till deployment seems a bit slow. Would be great if it included some sort of beacon on the float.

    Yeah, but there is no other product on the market that does the same things. That being said, deeply times depend on temp. of water, and other factors. Your results could be closer to 3 minutes. The water was VERY cold.

    As you can see in the video, 90% of the bobber is shot to the surface. You could attach a light if you wish.
