Drone aerial less than 100' over whale shark, mermaid and photographer.
Less than 100' over whale shark, mermaid and photographer.
In a subsequent flight, moved to boat stern rather than bow for takeoff (better footing for me). As Phantom (DJI P2V+) going up, gust of wind ran it into boat's rod holders and it went off into the water. Divemaster recovered it, but future flights are questionable with salt water intrusion. New one to arrive from B&H Friday. I'm comfortable flying over water, but this was clearly a pilot error. Live and learn. Press on.
