With its modular multi-functional payload system and open interface design, the SplashDrone 4 can quickly adapt to different tasks in the field.
For Filming
  • GC3-S
  • GC2-S
  • GC1-S
Waterproof 3-axis 4K camera
Capture smooth videos and crisp photos with the new, fully waterproof 4K camera stabilized by a 3-axis gimbal. GC3-S is our flagship gimbal camera. The powerful gimbal remains stable even in water while taking underwater shot. GC3-S now has Pro mode and supports RAW photo. ND filters can also be added for greater creative freedom.
Waterproof 2 axis night vision camera
The new night vision camera comes with a spotlight that can illuminate nighttime scenes and restore true colors. Even without the LED, the camera itself can still capture decent details in low-light situations.
Waterproof 1-axis 4K camera
With the same sensor as GC3-S, GC1-S can capture high-quality 4K videos and crisp photos. It also has Pro mode and supports RAW photos. ND filters can be added for greater creative freedom.
For Fishing
  • PL1-S
Waterproof Payload Release
The PL-1 payload release turns the SplashDrone 4 into an aerial bait dropping system that can deliver 2KG of bait and drop the bait at targeted locations up to 4km. The PL-1 can be mounted together with your choice of camera accessories for targeted payload release. Using the SwellPro NaviFLy app, you can program the bait drop or replay flights to successful fishing locations.
Innovative Smooth+ Flight Control
The patented"Smooth+"flight control allows the pilot to finely tune the Roll and Yaw of SplashDrone 4. Smooth+ makes professional, steady flight control as easy as turning the knobs. Want to take a steady shot? Simply switch to Smooth+ control, together with our 4K 3-axis gimbal, you can take high-quality, ultra-smooth & steady shots effortlessly.
5KM Image Transmission
The latest 5.8GHz digital image transmitter and adjustable antennas ensures a clear and reliable image and control signal range to the SplashDrone 4 of over 5km while airborne.
Powerflip
When the drone turns upside down on the water for any reasons, Power-Flip feature turns the drone back to the normal state to take the control back.
Dynamic Return to pilot
The SplashDrone 4 constantly records the GPS position of the remote controller, allowing the aircraft to always return to the pilot‘s position even if they are on a moving boat far away from the original take-off point.
Intelligent Follow me
Actively track the position of the pilot at a constant angle from the front, side, and back with the camera always pointing to the subject.
Orbit Follow
Automatically follow and orbit around a moving object at a chosen radius.
Boat Mode
Equipped with floating foams, the boat mode allows SplashDrone 4 to sail on water just like a boat, providing great underwater shots while remains the water area uninterrupted. Caves and other overhead environments can now be accessed by SplashDrone 4 for research, exploration, and underwater photography.
Unrivalled-performance Propulsion System
The more powerful 740Kv Motor, 40A ESC together with optimized aerodynamic design allow for tight, responsive, and total control of SplashDrone 4 in any challenging weather conditions.
Wind resistance beaufort force 7 (33 knots / 31 mph / 60 km/h)
2kg payload capacity
Smart Battery
The new slide-in smart battery has an internal battery management system for real-time power monitoring and protection both in charging and discharging, ensuring battery health, safety and longer lifespan. The 6500mAh high-performance lithium technology cells provide up to 30 minutes of flight time.
Effortless Autopilot
The SwellPro SDFly APP
The newly-developed SwellPro SDFly APP enables logging, planning, recording of missions as well as the control and parameter setting of cameras and other modules in flight.
Cruise mode
Automatically fly at a designated speed and direction.
Tap to fly
Autonomously fly to a selected location on the map at a predetermined altitude and speed, and hover awaiting further commands.
Waypoint mission planning
Preplan a mission by selecting a series of waypoints on the map with adjustable speed, height, hover time and camera angle at each point.
Grid mission planning
Connect up to 256 waypoints to form a mission area planning and the drone will follow an uniform grid pattern flight path at the selected speed and interval.
SDK allows deep integration of third-party add-ons to SplashDrone 4. Together with API, SplashDrone 4 is truly a multi-purpose & multi-functional platform for your imagination.

FAQ

Q:How many cameras are compatible with SplashDrone 4?

Total 5 cameras, including GC1-S 4K camera, GC2-S night-version camera, GC3-S 4K camera, GC3-T thermal camera and FAC camera.

Q:What's the difference between GC3-S, GC2-S and GC1-S cameras?

GC3-S camera and GC1-S camera use the same camera sensor, the difference between them is that GC3-S is stabilized by a 3-axis gimbal while GC1-S uses a single-axis gimbal. GC3-S is mainly intended for high-quality photography while GC1-S camera is only for first-person-viewing. The GC2-S night-vision camera works day & night, but the resolution is lower than GC3-S and GC1-S.

Q:What’s the main use of SplashDrone 4?

Swellpro SplashDrone 4 is an all-new multifunctional waterproof drone that is designed for operation in harsh environments, it's not only can be used for fishing but also for aerial photography, underwater photography, etc.
