Anyone have any idea what to expect in flight hours on motor life?
Lot's of my flights are over water, it's a little concerning loosing this bird.
I'll never get it back if it dunks.

Thanks!

Don't know about their life span.

How about putting floats on the skids? At least you'll get it back if it takes a dunk.

I've thought about balloon pillow material taped to the skids or long balloons, very light, extremely buoyant over foam. Not sure how it would be effected by strong downward thrust from motors.

Most of the time, I fly from shore base, reaching and getting to it presents a problem obviously.
