    Hello,

    Just about to start flying and I wanted to ask if anyone knows of any sort of balloon inflation system, that can be deployed in a critical incident when flying over water, that in case of loss of power or a major failure where a crash is imminent, so that the machine doesn't sink to the bottom of the lake.

    Mars makes these parachutes for an emergency application http://www.cnchelicopter.com/servlet/the-2457/Mars-Parachutes-Multi-Rotor/Detail but I wonder if anything like this exists that will keep the machine afloat a little longer so that it's not a complete loss. I know the electronics and camera would be done, but at least the frame etc would be ok.

    I've got a request for an aerial boating video and thus why I am inquiring

    Thanks very much for any info you may have.

    Cheers

    Evan

    Ah.. wonderful. Thank you Andy. I searched on 'Water' related posts and didn't dig that up.
