Default Waterproof drone....

Found a waterproof drone that according to the vid if it goes in the water it will take off from the water.

Pretty sweet. But where I live and fish, this thing would last about 3 seconds before it smacked a tree.

Here's the link to the promo video:

I'm thinking about buying one before they jump to $999. The biggest pro is definitely the waterproof casing. The biggest con is probably the 20 minute battery life.

It looks like it gets rid of the learning curve of flying a drone because it flies itself. The downside of that is the limited nature of possible camera shots you can take.

I'm curious as to the actual quality of the video it shoots, because we all know that promotional videos are not what you usually get in a product.
