Default HELP! I flew it into a pan full of water!

Can it be saved?
I dried it off as good as I know how but I only get a blinky blue light.

It's very likely it'll be ok once everything dries out completely. You can try dousing everything with 90% isopropyl alcohol (ask the pharmacist at the drug store for a bottle) and then hit it with a hair dryer for several minutes. The alcohol will dessicate the water as it evaporates. Lube the spots that need lubing and let 'er rip.

I blew it off hard with my mouth, waited half an hour, it worked fine (whew) right up until I hit the wall and broke the rotor head tab, ugh!
Some day I'll learn not to fly at a New Years Eve party (hic)
I'm still amazed at how much these things can take before something breaks!

I flew into a sink of soapy dish water yesterday, dried it out, it flies but acts really strange I have a hard time controlling it.
