The HEXH20 Pro V2 For All Weather Flight
Drones are used to film and broadcast all kinds of activities, from agricultural production, construction, search and rescue and extreme sports. However, up until now, there has been very little progress when it comes to getting drones to fly properly and safely in extreme weather. In fact most drones are not even designed to handle the lightest rain shower.
Progress was made with the release of the HEXH20 Pro, which offered decent all-weather versatility, protecting the drone from rain and snow, but now the product range is set to develop further with the release of the HEXH20 Pro V2. The second generation rotorcoper will allow users to enjoy improved battery life and, therefore, extended range, in comparison to its predecessor.
The new drone is fitted with a 4K DJI X3 gimbal for the camera, which nestle safely below the rotors, covered with waterproofed housing. DJI Lightbridge 2 is used to broadcast video, along with the renowned DJI Go app, enabling broadcasts from a range of 2.2 miles. Overall flight time is up to 30 minutes – an improvement of 8 minutes on its previous incarnation.
Barring tornadoes, hurricanes and other destructive extreme weather phenomena, the HEXH2O Pro V2 will be able to operate in pretty much all weather conditions, from humid and hot days, to icy cold winter evenings. Not only that, the V2 has the capability to land on water safely, enabling users to film under the surface of the water. This ability puts the V2 at the forefront of technology which can be applied in a whole range of fields, from underwater search and rescue missions to marine biology and inspection of construction projects in and under the water.
Unlike many of QuadH2O’s previous market releases, the HEXH2O Pro V2 relies on six rotors to carry it up and around. The main reason for this is safety – if users are flying the drone through adverse conditions and landing repeatedly on water, there is obviously a higher risk of something going wrong. If one, or even two rotors were to fail, the V2 would still be able to return home using the lift of the four remaining rotors.
