The first thing that strikes you when you see the drone is that its housing is waterproof and that protects all important elements of the drone with a fairly high level of tightness. The only thing that remains uncovered are the motors and these are fully prepared with a film that protects them against salt water so the device is ready to land and take off from the water without major problem, getting wet or even submerging slightly.

Thanks to these characteristics, the drone is specially designed for water sports, fishing or even rescue work thanks to a hook that is incorporated next to the camera and that we will see later.

Splashdrone 3+ very easy to assemble

The assembly of the Splashdrone 3+ is very simple to do and we can have it ready to fly in a few minutes. Basically what we have to do is:

  • mount the landing gear which is made up of two carbon tubes that are inserted into holes in the base of the drone. To put them in easily, you just have to first insert one side halfway, then insert the other side and then press gently until both are inserted until the end. It is a somewhat simple landing gear but the truth is that it is very light and perfectly fulfills its purpose.
  • place the propellers. To do this we only have to press the propellers slightly downwards and make a slight turn following the indications that are drawn on the rotors.
  • open the top cover of the drone to place the battery inside. It comes equipped with a small velcro to hold it perfectly and prevent it from moving and destabilizing us during the flight.
  • place the gimbal with the 4k camera. Its placement is very simple since you just have to hook it into its corresponding place and secure it with a pin so that in a few seconds you can exchange one accessory for another if necessary.

And that's it, following these 4 simple steps we have the drone ready to fly with all the guarantees.

Splashdrone 3+ station

Through this station we can control both the flight of the drone and other functions such as starting camera recording, taking pictures, opening the hook to drop the load, pressing the return home button, etc.

For our test we have also had some FPV goggles for first person flight, which are fully compatible with the drone and which come in the same striking orange color. These glasses come equipped with a high resolution double LED screen that will immerse you in the pleasure of FPV piloting. The cost of the FPV goggles is $ 199 and you can get them from this link.

Piloting the Splashdrone 3+

The drone is provided with several different flight modes, so that it adapts to all needs:

  • GPS mode: This is the default flight mode and allows you to enjoy stabilized flights with the help of GPS.
  • Cruise mode: with this mode you can pilot the drone with just one hand, since the device will remain at a constant altitude and by means of the jostick you can move it horizontally in a smooth way and record high quality videos.
  • ATTI mode: It is the most agile mode and that will allow you to achieve a higher flight speed, but obviously it is also the most prone to accidents.

In addition, the Splashdrone 3+ has a special flight mode called Smooth + through which we will control the aircraft with two potentiometers located under the jostick and that will allow us to have greater control over the rotation and direction of the drone, so they are perfect to enjoy a very precise flight and very stable videos.

For all those lovers of piloting with applications, the drone allows add a GroundStation link in order to control the device from your smartphone. The price of this accessory is $ 99 (you can buy it from here) and allows you thanks to the application Swellpro Fly use various intelligent flight modes such as the 'follow me' function, automatically fly to a location indicated on a map, circle a certain point, or plan a multi-point flight path via a map.
