58km/h (36mph) in GPS mode.

 

How much load can the SplashDrone 3 carry?

How does the Location Beacon work?

With the SplashDrone 3 Auto Edition, if you inadvertently lose or crash your drone out of sight, even with very low batteries, the Location Beacon will instantly provide the drone's location, pinpointed on your mobile device with voltage and altitude data to assist recovery. This feature uses a separate low-frequency (433Mhz) signal which helps propagate through obstacles. Range ~1km.

 

Will more payload modules be released for the SplashDrone 3?
