Mariner – the fully waterproof quadcopter
If you want to take aerial videos over rivers, lakes or the sea and you don’t want to be afraid of falling into the water you have to look after a water proof quadcopter.
You can find on the market several waterproof models. They are designed to survive a crash-land over the water.
The Mariner quadcopter is using the Naza-M Lite flight controller and it has all the important features. It can easily lift a GoPro action camera together with its waterproof case. Also, can be equipped with real time video transition system to perform FPV flights.
Using the Walkera 7 transmitter and the RX 701 receiver, the Mariner quadcopter has an amazing 1km flight range and up to 15 minutes flight time.
Mariner waterproof quadcopter features:

On the video below you can see how amazing and unique is this quadcopter. You can easily land with it on the surface of a lake or river.
Can a quadcopter be used as a submarine? No, I’m not joking! On the second video, the pilot accidentally lands it up side down on the water. The props were under the water and when he tried to take-off the quadcopter started to go under the water about half of meter. The waterproof quadcopter frame worked perfectly and after several tries he finally managed to successfully recover his Mariner quadcopter.
