- Vortex aircraft seem to explode when attempting to land upon water. Once the wheels touch the water, the aircraft explodes.
- Or, vortex aircraft engines will stall as soon as the wheels touch the water, and sink.
This maybe occurring with other aircraft as well.
The two videos show explicitly what should occur when entering the water, as long as no major electrical components acquire any moisture. I would imagine the landing gear contain all water proof parts, and all wiring is run elsewhere instead of within the bottom of the craft.
I think the second video likely violated standard operating protocols. ;-)
