When it comes to exploring a geographic space, using a drone is the ideal option to carry out this mission. This, due to the characteristics and elements present in this device that make it possible for anyone, through a remote control, to direct it to a certain place and observe everything that is there without having to be present.
Although there are a wide variety of drone models designed to move in the air, there are also them to carry out maritime explorations.
They are the so-called underwater drones, and we have already talked about some of them in the past: Biki, Fathom One, OpenROV Trident, Gladius, Power Ray, among others, which have made it possible to carry out expeditions under the sea without the need to enter it. .
This time we will talk about a new addition to the market, the FiFish V6 from the company Qysea, whose launch was announced last year. This underwater drone is the successor to the FiFish P3, characterized by presenting 6 propellants, an improvement over the 3 propellants of the FiFish P3.
In this sense, the 6 propellers of the FiFish V6 are distributed as follows: 2 horizontal rear, 2 vertical in the middle and 2 front inclined inward at an angle of 45 degrees.
This arrangement allows the V6 to provide its owner with 360-degree maneuverability in which it can roll, lean, or turn in any direction quickly, while also having the ability to travel at a maximum speed of 3 knots (1.5 m). / sec or 4.9 ft / sec).
Use and operation of the FiFish V6
Since radio signals do not propagate effectively in water, the FiFish V6 must be in communication with the owner through an electrical umbilical cable in order to be used, which makes it possible for the owner to be controlled by the remote control. from distance. In addition to this, the FiFish V6 includes an application that can be installed on iOS and Android mobile devices and tablets.
Regarding its performance, the V6 has been endowed with the ability to dive up to 100 meters deep. Also, you can record 4K / 30fps electronically stabilized video and capture 12 megapixel images simultaneously during this action in which the camera output is displayed in real time by the application.
Moving on to the extra lighting, this is provided by two LED bulbs that give the FiFish V6 a combination of 4 thousand lumens.
Thanks to its 9 thousand mAh / 97.2 Wh lithium battery, this underwater drone will give you a maximum use time of up to 4 hours before subjecting it to charge.
For purchase, the FiFish V6 is available starting at a starting price of $ 2,199 in which you can also have a more expensive V6S model that comes bundled with a 6-hour battery life, plus a robotic grab arm.
