Cool Splash Drone Alligator Searching Above and Below the Waterline 12 31 16

After losing two drones to Davy Jones Locker beneath the sea, I decided to wait for the waterproofing technology to get better. Finally, I took the plunge in December 2016 and bought a "Splash Drone" from a company based in Ft. Lauderdale called Urban Drones.

The Splash Drone is great for taking a peek under the waterline searching for freshwater wildlife like alligators which do not seem to be too bothered by the noise and wind from the drone rotors until you get really close. The entire drone including the camera on a stabilizing gimbal is waterproof and floats.

After searching for alligators in the video below, the drone's "Circle Flight" mode was enabled to show how the drone and camera on a gimbal takes fairly steady shots in a circle around the subject you choose such as yourself.

My next step will be to fly this drone offshore in the marine environment.

Happy New Year everyone! May 2017 be a great one.

Cheers, Tony
