Could not have got the camera this low (and got away with it) using a front mount

I kept saying to myself ........ he didn't dunk it in the water did he?? ..... After the heli pitched up near the end I was left a little .... until the last few frames of the video

Was the camera ok?

Too right about that being curtains for a front-mount heli

David

PS. Did you emit any colourful language when that happened?

Malcolm,

I fly a front mount, and dunked it in the Snake River last week. The foamies on the skids bounced off the water, so did the camera. No problems...........

- Yes, it was only under for about half a second. I didn't actually realise it had gone below the surface till I reviewed the footage. No water got to anything vital. The only damage was that the balancing tape on one tailblade came off when it got dunked - which caused a slight vibration for the rest of the flight
