Now we all knew that there would eventually be a time when you would actually be able to land a quad copter in water but who would have thought it would happen so soon ? Many of us are not strangers to multi rotors but the idea of being able to land your multi rotor in water and without consequences is extremely appealing. I just so happened to come across this site called AquaCopters.com . What they offer are quad copter frames that appear to be vacuum formed. I’ll show you a couple of videos here soon that show these phenomenal machines in action. They seem to be able to take a bit of abuse and keep on going !
Many of us at one time or another have experimented with their radio controlled craft by landing on water just to see if we could do it without having a tragedy. The thing I like about this idea is that should you feel like going outside for a quick flight and it is raining, there is no doubt you would be able to get away with it. The other thing I like is that now with the Go Pro camera being a common sight on most aircraft, the idea of mounting your camera underneath and landing it in a pond or lake is now a possibility. Now you could have a crash in a pond and walk away with your camera and everything in tact. I can see this item being a part of my future projects however that maybe be a little further down the road. Another great thing I like about these is that the price is just right, they offer the frame only for $119, or you can purchase the frame as an ARF unit costing you around $350. If you check out the one video there is mention about the clear frame and a brief suggestion of mounting your LED lights inside the frame and still being able to see the orientation of the craft in flight, how cool is that ?
Check out these vids , keep in mind I have no affiliation with the company or product nor do I profit from it. Hope you enjoy it and let me know what you think.
