    I don't know if this has been posted before, I thought it could be a useful choice for those who fly over water.
    It was invented to recover fishing gear lost in up to 100' of water, but, could be applied to drones, eh?
    Called the Getterback recovery system, worth a watch at: www.getterback.com

    No worries mate...that's what this place is here for...I will suggest using the SEARCH here though, I have been member since March, I have found answers to 90% of my questions there...when you do a search, change the wording a bit if you don't find what your looking for, cheers, Kel

    Yea, with 54,000+ members it's tough to be first with anything around here. Not impossible but tough.

    Now... what they need is to incorporate a waterproof version of Tile (or equivalent device) into this, so that if it lands in the water further away, you can track it down with your phone instead of looking for a small piece of floating plastic.
