A brand new DJI Phantom 2 is at the top of many geeks' wishlists, but they're not exactly cheap. So we can understand why Zwier Spanjer would wade into chest high (and presumably nipple-blasting cold) water for a last second mid-air catch before the poor robot took a warranty destroying dip. Not saying we'd do it ourselves, but we understand.
Editor's note: We're not sure if "pond" was the right word for that body of water, but "particularly large scum-puddle" wouldn't have fit in the title field. Forgiveness, please.
