Um What can i say , it floats ,
I built it to chase wind surfers and wave riders surfers and boats,
A drink bottle taped to the quad is probably better ,
But when asking a stranger if i can film her/him on their sail /surf / what ever board the prop guards make them feel safe
Cheers
Ps Waterproofing by marine silicone spray used on motor Boat electricals, messy but clear,

I see that eachine wizard x220 bottom plate is enjoying it's new life! What a cool concept man, x8 that floats.

I like that you used the battery straps to bond the layers together, where you placed them, and what they are doing, seem great.
Is the 7" x8 fast? What battery(s) are you using with it?

Some people strap a bottle to the bottom, but at least yours has a CHANCE of hitting the water upright, and taking back off, I say it's better.
Cheers man, keep it up :D

The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
