IdeaFly Poseidon-480 – Fisherman’s best RC drone :D

I bet that every pilot is a bit afraid to fly above a lake or river with his precious drone. The IdeaFly Poseidon-480 is advertised with IP68 waterproof rating and the fact that it can safely land on a surface of water. Of course, without too big waves.

Unlike other waterproof drones that require a waterproof camera, the Poseidon-480 is suitable for any GoPro or alike camera. The bubble under its belly protects both brushless gimbal and camera when they are immersed under the water.

The included 10 channel transmitter allows about 500 – 800 control distance.

Unfortunately, in the manufacturer’s specs there is nothing mentioned about the FPV (First Person View) system, so it is possible that is suitable only for LoS flights.

Thanks to the high-voltage (6s) Li-Po battery, the Idea-Fly Poseidon-480 has about 25 minutes of flight autonomy.

  1. I have problems with my Ideafly- Poseidon-480 remote control:
    1. How and when do you use modes.GPS, ATTI and RTH?
    2. How and when do you use Course Lock?
    3. How and when do you use Home Lock?
    4. When I want the Drone to come back home how must I do it?
    5. How do you record what is seen by the camera? I can see the picture on the black screen,but I can not record anything on the SD card

    • Sorry, this website is only a drone news blog, we do not sell anything! you should contact the Poseidon-480’s manufacturer regarding a quote.

  2. Please advise: if the bait dispenser servo motor on the waterproof fishing drone Poseidon 480 is water proof when the plastic cap is not fitted.

  3. Ah thanks to the advancement in waterproof-drone technology – loving these kind of multi-rotors, as now they give us the flexbility to land on solid-ground or water.
