HexH2o Pro V2 is essentially an upgraded waterproof DJI Inspire. This new hexacopter can fly in the snow, the rain, and even float on water with its buoyancy system. This is built for professionals looking to do marine research, industrial inspections, first response missions, and it can capture DJI quality footage in the most demanding environments.

QuadH20 is a UK based company that offers many other custom made waterproof drones, and this is their latest multirotor release.

Features:

This will come built with DJI’s X3 camera, N3 flight controller, E800 motors, Lightbridge 2 technology, and it will be compatibility with the DJI GO app. For those who aren’t familiar with DJI’s technology, this multicopter will be able to fly up to 3.5km. The X3 is a 12.4-megapixel camera that can shoot up to 4096×2160 resolution at a 60Mbps bitrate. The downlink is 1080p capable. Six 13-inch quick release propellers will also be included. This will be able to fly up to 56 km/h in sports mode. The flight time is rated at 30 minutes. It’ll be able to hold a payload of up to 2 kilograms. The airframe is built with epoxy fiber composite, and it’ll come with carbon fiber arms.

Upgrades?

Apparently, the custom built frame lacks support for an X5 camera since this was built to be a sealed unit.

Breather System

When the company was asked about the waterproof capabilities of the HexH20 pro v2 multirotor, they responded, “The Hex is a sealed unit apart from the breather tubes (required for the flight controller’s barometric sensor) and the removable dome/rear hatch – which sit on neoprene seals and retain with quick release clips.

The breather system is designed in such a way so as to allow air circulation whilst keeping water out. That said the machine is not designed to be submerged and due to its cubic capacity and high buoyancy, it would very hard to submerge it without considerable force (unless of course you removed the dome/hatch or breached the hull in some other way).”
