Enhancing and extending the features of the previous SplashDrone 3, the latest SplashDrone 3+ is the most reliable and versatile waterproof drone yet. Coupled with several different payloads such as waterproof gimbal 4K camera GC-3, waterproof payload release with HD FPV live video PL-2, waterproof payload release with 4K camera and 1axis gimbal PL-3, and the upcoming waterproof payload release with low-light camera PL-4. SplashDrone 3+ can be adapted for a wide variety of uses. It is an all-purpose, all-weather, waterproof flying platform.
(1): Amphibious - The Splash drone has been designed and manufactured to fly and land on or off the water, and can operate over land as well.
(2): All weather conditions - As defined in MIL-STD 810 in terms of rain and snow. SplashDrone is designed and manufactured to withstand a wind up to Beaufort Force 4.
Note : Splash Drone 3+ is a basic platform that allows you to pick and choose the additional accessories to match your application. It does not come with 3 Axis Gimbal 4k Camera Module, Payload Release Module or Ground Station Module. Contents of the Waterproof Splash Drone 3 + is as per below:

The SplashDrone 3+ fuselage is made from durable 3mm reinforced ABS to ensure a perfect waterproof seal. Each drone undergoes at least two pressure tests during production for 100% waterproofness. All parts, both inside and out, are corrosion resistant and designed for use in marine environments.
Reinforced 3mm ABS Fuselage
Suitable for All Weather Use
Custom designed hatch lid with pressure equalization vent for increased barometer accuracy.
(1): Waterproof - The Splash drone has been designed and manufactured to be impervious to fresh or salty water, and the effects of rain. Although it can withstand prolonged periods of time, in these conditions, it is not designed to be operated as a submarine.
New access hatch lid with air pressure equalization allows altimeter accuracy without permitting water entry.
Powerful Propulsion System
The new S3 flight controller, integrated with new sensors and a powerful propulsion system, allows for greater sensitivity and accuracy than ever. This means you can fly SplashDrone 3+ safely and smoothly with more confidence on water, in rain and snow.
S3 Flight Controller
The S3 constantly checks for errors and offers redundancy to improve flight stability. The dual-mode GPS locks onto up to 24 satellites from the GPS and GLONASS systems for improved accuracy and speed of positioning.
Redesigned carbon-fibre propellers are light and stiff to efficiently transform the motors' power into thrust. A new quick-fit design enables fast and secure attachment of the propellers to the motors.
High Thrust Motors
The powerful new motors provide strong performance, speed and lifting capacity. A special coating system ensures maximum resistance to salt water corrosion and power delivery for take-off from water and in heavy rain. Power and maneuverability to fly in winds up to Beaufort Force 4 (18mph/28 kmh) with gusts to Force 6 (31mph/49 kmh).
All in One Remote Controller
The SplashDrone 3+ comes with a custom designed, fully integrated remote controller. Redesigned controls maximize ease-of-use and efficiency, while a fully integrated, high-brightness 5" FPV screen clearly displays live video and overlaid (OSD) flight data without the need for any additional equipment. Flight control, payload release and camera controls are all at your fingertips.
Switch the remote controller into the Cruise mode and you will be able to pan (yaw) and fly the SplashDrone 3+ simultaneously with a single joystick, making your flight path smoother for more cinematic footage.
Go from joystick to fine knob control of drone rotation, direction or orbit - great for smooth videos and accurate flight.
Add the GroundStation option and your mobile phone or GPS-enabled tablet can take control of the SplashDrone 3+ with your fingertip! The Swellpro FLY APP enables several smart flight modes, which drastically reduces manual input from the pilot, making flying the SplashDrone 3+ even easier.
The SplashDrone 3+ will constantly follow and turn towards you as you move at a max speed of 20km/hour, recording awesome selfies.
Tap to select waypoints on a map and the SplashDrone 3+ will execute the mission on command.
Select a circling radius and the number of orbits to capture the perfect video with your chosen subject always in the middle of the frame.
Tap to Fly
Tap on the map where you want your drone to go and SplashDrone 3+ will navigate to the destination and hover.
SplashDrone 3+ includes multiple layers of protection to keep your aircraft safe and help ensure your drone comes home safely.
If the signal is lost, the SplashDrone 3+ returns to the starting point and lands gently. You can also tap Return-Home on the app or flick the Return-Home switch on the remote controller to retrieve the drone.
Low Battery Alerts
During flight, if the battery voltage reaches a two predetermined warning levels, the remote controller will display a clear flashing notice for the pilot.
Low Battery Auto-landing
When the battery is almost completely drained, SplashDrone 3+ will execute an in-position auto landing to prevent a crash.
Lost Drone Location Beacon If you inadvertently lose or crash your drone out of sight, you will instantly have the drone's location pinpointed on the APP’s map, even with low batteries. (GroundStation module required). Self-righting when floating
If the aircraft is inverted when on the water, the SplashDrone 3+ can flip itself right-side-up on command - ready to take off again.
