Nice catch! Zweier Spanjer's first day testing out his DJI Phantom II drone took an unexpected turn when its batteries started to deplete and the $700 gadget started plummeting towards the nearest pond.

It ended up getting rescued by its heroic owner. Hopefully he didn't have a phone worth more than $700 in his pocket.
