@1poet, that's totally fine! Many users plan to keep the buoy and tether onboard a boat, dock, or land to make retrieval easier if they don't need the drone's maximum range!
Good to know. Keeping the buoy tether on board my boat are in my plans too.
That's interesting to hear @mikeli. Our hope is that the buoy will function just as effectively as a tether management solution on a dock or boat as it does in the water!
