It can fly over any water body but can't fly on it, N FYI its not waterproof so be careful

The optical sensors which help Tello hold its position don’t work well, if at all, over reflective surfaces like water, so Tello is likely to drift when it’s over water.

it will drift away for sure.

you know what scary is? "Landing as soon as possible" warning above water.

Yeah, reflective surfaces like water causes the VPS to not detect the surface and turn off. You can fly, but it’s very risky. It can try to land on water like mentioned above.
