Water proof quads
Anybody tried or have one of these ? I would order the frame kit but they seem to be out of stock .
I was thinking how to semi-waterproof my existing quad as I want to take pictures and videos over water.

Hey Paul. I added floats to my f550 for that very reason. If you are interested, I'll upload a picture. Cost was nearly $0.00

Yes, post some pictures. I would like to add floats to my larger Hex. Considered 1 liter coke bottles somehow.

You are certainly thinking along the same line. I used the very cheap but also very lightweight bottled water bottles. For the DJI 450 or 550 a tie wrap around the neck and a square of industrial 3M double sided tape at the other end allows it to sit perfectly level. This wouldn't keep the electronics dry necessarily but keeps it from submersion and sinking.

GoPro case treated with RainX.

Actually I hope to never land in the water. That is a cheap insurance policy if I do.

hmmm....great idea. I live surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico, and the town I live in has more miles of canals that any city in the world, other than Venice Italy, so I've often thought I might end up doing some work where I might have to be over water.....
Thank for the ideas....

Although I ordered the waterproof unit which will be for splash and play.
.
I will outfit my larger Hex with similar coke bottle floats for failure recovery only. When I need to fly over the lake at any distance from shore I am fortunate to have available a very large pontoon that is striped of all railings and bling, so I have a nice flat portable take off & landing barge.
The camera on my larger Hex is already a waterproof Pentax, so no problem if I crash into the water, but I need those recovery floats.
