The drone uses technology from DJI to justify its steep price.

Underwater drones for consumers are still in the works, but they might hold a little less utility than the drones everyone is more acquainted with. Water-resistant drones can still come in handy, though. So, QuadH2O has people covered for flying around water.

TheHexH2O Pro V2 is a hexacopter capable of landing and recording on water through the use of a buoy system. The device’s weather-resistant features also mean it can fly through the rain or snow without need for concern.

The water resistance is the main feature of the HexH2O, as its other functions will look familiar to anyone who has used a drone. It has a top flight time of 30 minutes, can fly in 25mph winds and has return-home safety features. The drone also uses parts from DJI, which is pretty much the gold standard in consumer drones these days.

DJI's Lightbridge II allows the HexH2O to send videos from a distance of up to 2 miles. This can be handled through the DJI Go app. The safety features are handled by DJI's N3 flight controller. Even the drone comes with DJI's X3 Fk camera and gimbal system.

With these kinds of specs, the HexH2O ships with some of the best drone technology on the market. This is in addition to the fact that it is resistant. It will come as no surprise, then, that the price tag is a steep $6,449. This is a niche market anyway. No doubt some people will find the price of admission worth it.
