    Today I tried to film on a mountaintop. The wind was apparently stronger than I earlier have experienced.
    I took it up to about 90 feet, I very suddenly discovered when trying to maneuver that I lost altitude. Apparently the P2+ was struggling on the limit.
    I did somewhat panic and just wanted to land. I felt I was just luck to bring it down insight. Unfortunately I managed to panic land it in a small mound.
    The camera came under water but the engines stayed dry. I ran to it took it up and took out the battery. After drying it I tried it and start it up and seems that it’s working. I was quite convinced I had bricked it but apparently there is hope. So to what extent will the camera resist water?


    p.s. pay attention to the wind.
