(For Peace of Mind)
AirDog is designed to land at home when you command it to and automatically if the battery reaches a low level during adventure sports on water, so your AirDog is safe. But after many questions and requests we've begun designing a floater attachment for those that will be using AirDog to film extensively over water (Wake, Surf, Windsurf and Kiteboarding).
While the floater can’t be regularly used for landing in water, it is perfect for emergency landing. The floater will add weight and reduce flight time and speed, however the floater will prevent AirDog from sinking if something unplanned happens, providing peace of mind and saving your GoPro. A solution for something you’ll most likely never deal with.
The floater is made from EPP foam and has thermoplastic coating. There’s two snap fit points and a few extra velcro bands. Just as AirDog is foldable and super easy to travel with (just put it in your backpack), so will the floater be easy and quick to attach. Just snap and go.
*AirDog will most likely not survive a salt water emergency landing, but the floater attachment will save your camera. In case of landing in fresh water, AirDog will sustain damage but there’s a chance AirDog will survive (no guarantee) after drying. Again, the floater is only meant for emergency landings and development has been spurred by the many questions and requests from the AirDog community.
