Just a few months ago we heard about the project HexH2o, within which was released waterproof Quadri copter that can perform and the air and underwater video. It seems that it could be a great fun for outdoor enthusiasts and just for tourists, if not for its price tag – 3658 US dollars. Of course, this price is obviously not for everyone.
But if you do not mind the drone with the number of propellers two less then set aside the first option and look at the new device – just look at a much less expensive alternative to the production company Urban Drones, which is already being offered to potential buyers.
Despite the fact that Splash Drone like Quadri copter quite simple, the structure is completely waterproof. Users install the camera GoPro at the bottom of the waterproof slot with 2 axles and immediately have the opportunity to capture on video their extreme adventures as above the water and under the surface of it, without worrying about the safety of members of this remarkable technology. Drone will be on the surface of water with submerged chamber until it is resumed to take off again.
Built-in transmitter can be incorporated into the camera, thus allowing to transmit live video from the drone to another user’s device at a distance of about one mile (1.6 km) high.
Splash Drone can be piloted in real time, using the included radio receiver remote control, or can autonomously follow a flight plan, prepared with the help of the accompanying application.
This application also allows the use of drone mode following the master – it will automatically fly in front and above by concentrating on the device with the application, that is, most likely, on his smartphone user. Full charge capacity. 4200 mA / h is enough for about 15 minutes of flight, so I have to take breaks often enough.
