Celebrating the Chinese National Day, DarwinFPV announced their first waterproof cinematic FPV drone with an IP67 rating for harsh environments. Like Marvel’s muscular humanoid superhero, the DarwinFPV HULK also has green colour.
The DarwinFPV HULK has two floaters that allow landing on the water’s surface. The floaters also prevent sinking completely underwater. According to the manufacturer’s specs, the max takeoff weight is 720 grams. The HULK drone itself (without battery) weighs just 290 grams.
Instead of using an encapsulated watertight fuselage, DarwinFPV opted for a classic open-frame design. TAll electronic systems are made of the glue pouring process and the aluminium alloy shell, which not only carries an excellent appearance but is very durable. It has IP67 protection grade, excellent waterproof and dustproof performance and can be used in harsh environments (mud, ice, snow and water) without damage.
Darwin HULK is equipped with a 4/6S 45A F4 AIO flight controller, built-in ELRS 2.4GHz radio receiver, and plug-and-play interfaces with short circuit protection. The longer-life HULK 2204.5 waterproof motor adopts top-grade stainless steel bearing, excellent rust resistance, and 2000h+ motor service life. While the 4S version uses 2450KV motors, the 6S edition 1750KV ones.

DarwinFPV’s waterproof FPV drone is available with 5.8G analogue or HD digital FPV systems. While the analogue edition comes with the specially designed HULK waterproof camera and 600 mW VTX, the digital edition with Walksnail Avatar HD Digital Kit.
