I had no idea the Karma could "Fly" underwater

I would think a chance of surviving fresh water immersion but years ago I fished out a guys drone from a bayou as they call them here and lights still flashing etc. As I held it up to show owner and disconnect battery one of the motors smoked. Would not have thought that. Who knows.

Sorry your drone crashed but the footage is pretty cool!
Wasn’t my drome, just a crash video I found on YouTube. This pilot made some incredibly rookie mistakes. I’m guessing the drone was pretty new to them. I’ve been fortunate that I have never crashed my Karma.

Anecdotally the Karma had a very small chance of surviving a fresh water landing, and almost no chance If it lands in salt water.

I’ve also seen folks recover their camera, even though the drone is otherwise a complete loss. Since you remove the water proof cover in order to connect the camera to the gimbal, it isn’t a given that the camera would even be recoverable.
