Drone and Phone does not always go to plan. In this episode DJ wakes up with a bad shoulder but soldiers on to record what was meant to be first in the series of packraft adventures. His bad luck does not stop there, as the pain intensifies he forgets his hat and a controller for the drone which leads to a wet landing. All this amongst the spectacular Hong Kong Geo park, guided by Rory Mackay from Wild Hong Kong.
