Yikes! Those are some hard core tech divers. 229ft down?! I get uncomfortable below 100ft as a sport diver. I'd like to know how much of the heli they were able to reuse. I would think fresh water soak, drying out and then getting it oiled and running would save the airframe at least.

That's good work. He mentions the depth at 17.1 meters....that's 56ft. I guess the challenge of finding it was worth something.

I heard 70.1 meters. I can't imagine needing the extra tank for 60ft of water. I'll go back and relisten. 17 meters, no big deal. 70 meters, huge deal!

One of my vital rules is never fly over water. I had the accidental idle up condition for a second today. Did a tic toc, stall turn, and inverted priouette! LOL I think!! Managed to get her under control but the pucker factor kicked in hard!!I wish I still flew!!!

I will say he had the balls factor in play. Heli wasn't even set up and by the look of his flying skills...he wasn't ready for 3D
Now the balls kick in and over water.

I think he has read the latest threads were they say to soak puffy batteries in salt water

Has anyone ever saved anything off of a Heli that went in the water? I can see airframe and canopy depending on how hard you hit. But this guy was so happy thinking after an hr in sunlight he would be flying again. Funny stuff

Depends on if hitting the water killed the power, if so then most of it could be salvaged, possibly. If ya really want to. Btw, I heard 17.1m.RIP Roman

He was able to save a good bit of the frame, mechanics and motor.
Think he said 17.1 meters in OP video.
