Here is an important lesson about keeping your drone’s batteries well-charged, especially when flying it over a body of water.
 
After operating his new Phantom 2 DJI all day, Zwier Spanjer scrambled to keep his precious gadget from making an unscheduled splash landing, and his valiant effort was captured on the drone’s camera.
 
So what happens when a guy jumps into a pond to save his drone? A viral video. Posted on YouTube on Thursday, the video already has more than 463,000 views.
 
One YouTube user already posted a video that sets the rescue to Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.”
