A new underwater camera drone believed to be the world’s first five-drive MINI underwater craft features a 4K Ultra HD camera and has potential for commercial use.

Flying Drones’ Gladius Mini has a 4K Ultra HD camera 3840x2160 @30fps and the camera also allows FHD 1920x1080 @30,60,120fps. It can inspect objects at an adjustable 45-degree angle and has five stabilising propellers to record steady video for operation such as hull inspections or for diving on a wreck.

“It can dive down to 100m and propel faster than two metres per second. It can also rise and dive vertically,” said Flying Drones.

Other features included in the small and portable drone include intuitive remote steering control. VR goggles can also be used to immerse someone into the camera’s vision.

It can be controlled through a smart phone and is able to live stream to social media channels with a one-touch sharing option.

Up to three devices can be used with the drone, which can also connect to a TV via HDMI.

The craft has two hours of battery life and one-touch depth lock for safety and security.
