Drones are fast becoming ubiquitous, and the quadcopter is the most popular design at the hobbyist level. Most quadcopters are designed to fly and only fly, there are of course a few exceptions, such as the Parrot Orak. I’d like to introduce a new amphibious drone, the “Mariner,” while both the Orak and Mariner are amphibious the Mariner takes things to a whole new level. The Mariner is 100% waterproof and in the video below, you will see it take full advantage of that fact.
World’s First Submarine Drone!! The “Mariner” Waterproof Drone, filmed in St Maarten
Everyone is always amazed to learn of a waterproof Drone that not only floats on the water, but can take of and land from the water also.. whether fresh water, salt water, lake, ocean, pool… whatever you want to throw it in! But what if there was a Drone you could even ‘fly’ underwater..? Enter the “MARINER” WATERPROOF DRONE!
It seems there is no limit to the fun you can have with the “MARINER” Waterproof Drone, and now the fun got extended to underwater like a submarine! Just think of the possibilities.. ‘fly’ down for a look at your boat, inspect the keel, rudder, or prop, have a look at that reef nearby.. the possibilities are endless!
Going through a process like building the Mariner is a learning experience. You don’t know what you don’t know yet. I found it interesting that disabling GPS is one of the key things required for underwater use. Here are a few more videos of the Mariner for you to enjoy.
