The SplashDrone 3 AUTO is the most advanced SplashDrone waterproof drone ever released.
It combines years of experience and customer feedback with an all-new flight computer, sensors and propulsion system to produce a reliable, stable and versatile waterproof drone with UltraHD 4K camera on board.
Swap the waterproof gimballed camera for optional modules including Search & Rescue, bait and payload release as well as thermal imaging.
Fly smoothly and then land your SplashDrone with confidence on water, in rain and snow or just back to earth.
The SplashDrone 3 fuselage is made of durable 3mm reinforced ABS to ensure a perfect waterproof seal. All external parts are corrosion resistant and designed for use in salt and fresh water environments.
- Reinforced 3mm ABS Fuselage
- Floating design
- Corrosion-free materials throughout
- All weather use tested to MIL-STD 810 (rain and snow)
- Power and manoeuvrability to fly in winds and rain up to Beaufort Force 4 (18mph/28 kmh).
Redesigned 1242 carbon-fibre propellers are light and stiff to efficiently transform the motors' power into thrust. A new quick-fit design enables fast and secure attachment of the propellers to the motors.
Swellpro’s unparalleled fully waterproof 4K gimbal camera captures smooth videos and sharp photos both while flying as well as underwater.
High power brushless gimbal motors ensures shake-free footage always, even during high speed water landings. A special hydrophobic coating ensures a clear, dry lens as soon as you take SplashDrone 3 back to the air or when flying in rain.

Because greater power and versatility requires greater control, the SplashDrone 3 comes with a custom designed, fully integrated remote controller. Redesigned controls maximize ease-of-use and efficiency, while a fully integrated, high-quality 5" FPV screen clearly displays live video and overlayed (OSD) flight data without the need for any additional equipment.With the one remote controller, flight, payload release and camera positioning controls are at your fingertips.
A completely new Flight Control computer, coupled with new sensors and a more powerful propulsion system, mean you can fly safely and smoothly and then land your SplashDrone 3 with confidence on water, in rain and snow or just back to earth.
The SplashDrone's new flight software constantly check for errors and offers redundancy to improve flight safety and stability. The dual-mode GPS locks onto up to 24 satellites from the GPS and GLONASS systems for improved accuracy and speed of positioning.
Advanced internal shielding of components and sensors allow for greater sensitivity and accuracy than ever. Even if you are beginner, flying the SplashDrone AUTO should be a stress-free experience.
Link your mobile phone or GPS-enabled tablet to the included ground station and take control of the SplashDrone 3 auto with your fingertip! The Swellpro FLY app enables several smart flight modes, which drastically reduces manual input from the pilot, making flying the Splash drone even easier.
Switch to Follow Me mode and the SplashDrone 3 will constantly follow and turn towards you as you move, recording you and the scene around you in UltraHD definition.
Tap to select waypoints on a map and the SplashDrone 3 AUTO will execute the mission faithfully; circling, pausing and changing elevation according to your selected route instructions.
Tap to Fly
Tap on the map where you want your drone to go and SplashDrone will navigate to the destination and hover, awaiting further commands from you.
On any waypoint, select a circling radius and number of circuits to perform to capture the perfect video with your chosen subject always in the middle of the frame.
Finished your mission? Tap Return-Home on the app or flick the Return-Home switch on the remote controller, and the SplashDrone3 will adjust its altitude to the pre-programmed safe flight level and fly directly home before landing gently without any input from the pilot.
Want to concentrate on filming? Switch the Remote Controller into Smart-Cruise mode and you will be able to pan (yaw) and fly the SplashDrone with a single joystick, making your flight path smoother and more cinematic.
The SplashDrone 3 has multiple layers of protection to help ensure your drone comes home safely.
Signal loss or radio interference
If the drone detects that it has lost the signal from the remote control for any reason, the S3 Flight Controller takes over control and returns the drone to the point where it took off from before landing gently.
Low battery alert
During flight, if the battery voltage reaches a predetermined warning level, the remote controller displays a clear flashing notice for the pilot indicating that flight time is now limited.
Low battery auto-landing
When the Flight Controller detects that the battery is almost completely drained and will run out of power to safely fly the drone, it will execute an in-position auto landing to prevent a crash.
Lost Drone Location Beacon
If you inadvertently lose or crash your drone out of sight, with the SplashDrone's Location Beacon feature, you will instantly have the drone's location pinpointed. Even with low batteries, the SplashDrone's Locator Beacon will relay the drone's position, voltage and altitude data to assist recovery.
More than a camera drone, the SplashDrone 3 Auto offers a versatile payload capacity of 1kg and multiple waterproof payload release solutions for different purposes. Use payload release to drop rescue supplies safely or position your fishing bait right where you want it. All payload options are waterproof (IP67) and utilise the SplashDrone's quick-fit mount so they can be fitted and removed in seconds.
