Flying off of water can open up a lot of new areas to fly and expand the enjoyment of the hobby. Your nearest lake can now be a go to spot for that perfect flying day. To me nothing beats that nice smooth landing into the water and taxiing up on shore. As an added bonus for me the backgrounds you find around a lake are generally much more photogenic then your average RC field. Living in Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes, means I have plenty of opportunities for new flying site and new places to explore.
