I'm still not sure exactly what happened. It was bloody emotional as I'm really attached to the little guy. At least I managed to make a sweet video of the experience. Always look on the bright side.

Will update if I get any info from the logs that shine a light on the cause of crash (I'm guessing bird strike or mechanical failure).

I am so sorry for your loss, that is a major drag BenCathro, hope you get it resolved or replaced.

Water.. Big lake, I was thinking you would need scuba gear to go find it. surprised it was a few feet down. Great story. Good luck on the replacement.
