A Super Cub on Floats: two questions

1. Does a LiPo pose a threat by flying over water (HZ Super Cub)?
2. Will the propeller be sufficient here?

My setup:
  • Stock Super Cub, Motor
  • gws 535 floats
  • prop: gws DD 10x6 propeller
  • Batt: LiPo 1320mah 3S (Flight Power)

Lipos are not a problem in water , I have crashed many times , hasn't hurt the Lipos.

Lots of other stuff got hurt !!

motors will run while submerged , water on wires no problem , Rx and ESC and servos do not like water , use Corrosion X on these.
