Anyone fly their drone over water?
Tried some canal footage today, and my hovering Zoom kept slowly dropping towards the water. Any of you had a similar experience?

If the Mavic 2 is anything like the Mavic 1 then you need to turn off the downward VPS mate, water plays havoc with sensors.

As does AstroTurf strangely enough :)

I have had an issue with serious drift over water which I initially thought was IMU but then realized it probably was VPS tracking the water ripples/waves.
I hadn't heard much about descents though. Were you using tap-fly perchance? That works 3 dimensionally. If you click on the screen below the horizon, it will decend.
