Swellpro Splashdrone 3+

By The Angler

Drones are certainly the “in thing” these days. When you take out a drone, you suddenly become a rock star. People start looking for the buzzing sound up in the sky, followed by the “need” or rather “want” to know who the pilot is. Drones are wonderful. They help take shots from places that we cannot take just with our cameras (unless we climb mountains or fly in a helicopter or plane). The angles are also really cool. But not all drones are created equal.

When it comes to fishing, travelling, or simply just having fun; a drone with a camera to shoot photos and videos will help capture memories as well as add to the fun. But what’s better is a drone that does not mind getting drenched in water. Anglers especially will love this drone unless you fish on dry land with no water around then… I am lost for words. We spend our hobby out at sea, by a lake, river, pond, etc. and we also spend time on them (fishing on boats, kayaks, and other watercrafts).

Splashdrone 3+ is a 100% waterproof drone that does not mind dropping into a lake, or river, or even the sea. It can turn itself around on water and take off for the skies again.

More Information From Swellpro

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.

Quick-Fit Propellers

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.

Cruise Mode

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.

Fly Autonomously

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.

Tap to Fly

Tap on the map where you want your drone to go and SplashDrone 3+ will navigate to the destination and hover.

Fly Safely

SplashDrone 3+ includes multiple layers of protection to keep your aircraft safe and help ensure your drone comes home safely.

Return Home

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.



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

Waterproof payload release with low-light camera PL-4. SplashDrone 3+ (upcoming); can be adapted for a wide variety of uses. It is an all-purpose, all-weather, waterproof flying platform.
