Amazing!!! Everything Survived!!! (Crash Description Written)

I completely totalled my radian yesterday when the elevator fell off and it nosed dived from 900ft into a field, full of water. All of the electronics were completely immersed in water for almost 10 minutes before I found it and picked it up.

All of these were in 8'' of water yesterday

EzOsd
EzOsd Current Sensor
Tiny Mic
Futaba 2.4 Ghz Rx
Video Lipo
Flight Lipo
Pan Servo
Dx-201
Video Transmitter
Go Pro HD w/o waterproof case

AMAZINGLY EVERYTHING WORKS NOW!!! I just left everything to dry overnight and today everything acts as if nothing ever happened.

I am SO happy (my wallet is happy too)


By the way does anyone know how to read files that weren't completed? Because the gopro shut off prematurely on impact and the crash would be amazing to see in hd

take the SD where the file was on. turn on a GoPro camera. insert the SD into the GoPro. You will see "SoS" flashing. press shutter and wait until it stops flashing. now try accessing the file. the crash might be lost, though.

I would copy everything on the SD card first THEN try that.

Bummer, the first time I plugged the card in (yesterday) it flashed SOS but now it doesn't do it, I wish there was another way to recover the footage.

That sucks about the video - but congrats on everything surviving. That sounds like a one in a million event.

Your dx201 may fail in the future. Mine did after a dip. Consider a rth in case it does.
