    To be one of the lucky buyers of the DR-1 was enough, but to have your dad fly it into the kitchen sink and let it sit there for 10 seconds was thought to be it's end.

    However to my surprise the drone was still able to fly after this incident with ease!

    The one issue being my £1500 computer was shorted and fried in the process of an attempted charge! However the DR-1 is here to keep me company in the wait of the new parts, won't be charging via PC again!

    The DR-1 short circuited your board.

    Yeah I mean they can happen to anyone at anytime, but I can't blame anyone but myself for attempting to charge a water damaged drone through my PC! better treat my new board better when the parts finally arrive, god dammit Amazon! :p

    So dad flies drone into sink :oops: Then you plug a drone that I'm guessing cost less than one tenth the cost of your computer and it fries the MB :oops: But HEY! The drone still works! AWESOME :p

    I couldn't believe how hard drones were to get used to at first but after owning a decent spec FPV drone the DR-1 was a doddle to get used to, shame on them for flying a drone outside in the wind when so inexperienced! :p Noob level = 3000
