Help!
1SQ V-cam Water Crash

Yeah I know this is a really newbi thing to do but it happened. Left to right pass...Flip and left turn.... whoops.... hard right turn, just cleared the six foot fence right into the pool. Less than a minute on the bottom. No Led's on in the water but as soon as I got it out the led on the board lit up. Disconnected the battery immediately. Pulled the canopy, props and plugs. Dried the majority of the collected water with a hair dryer no heat. The whole quad is buried in a bowl of rice. What's my chances of this thing ever flying again, the camera working and what about the Lipo???

Set over night in the rice, dusted it off this morning and everything works including the camera and lipo.

I dunked my Nano Qx in a pool, probably 5 - 10 minutes. I just put it in the back of my hot SUV for about 4 hours. It works fine. But, I don't think I'd want to try that with an expensive quad.

I don't mind being wrong when things work out.

LOL Thanks. Been there Done that. That's what I bought this little guy for was to learn how to fly. Definitely got some work to do. Besides I already know how to swim.

For real, right?
I've flown over fast moving, and very deep water.
I can swim, but would not be going in after it, despite my attachment to it.
