Don’t Do THIS! Sinking a DJI Mini 2 Drone In A River Is A BAD Idea! – Drying Out Your DJI Drone

So this one time at….. Yeah. After a day out walking and shooting in the hot sun I decided it was a good idea to launch the drone one last time. I mean hey, it was nice light, a friend where I was camped gave me a good idea, thought I’d see if I could make that happen. FAIL.

This is a video about how I went about drying out my DJI Mini 2 and retrieving the footage after dunking it into a moving river.
