If this is the Typhoon H you don't need a sd card in the controller to record telemetry. It is recorded on the internal memory. I suggest you stay with land based flying until you are confident in your skills and the airworthiness of the machine. Flying over water is frequently a one way trip.

i would be more open to your thoughts and comments , however it is not my first time doing so i have at least a few hundred hours flying time , so i am very comfortable doing so , i am also confident in the drone as it hasnt failed me befoe that is why i am comfortable in the airworthiness.
