SplashDrone 4 Review by Captain Drones

IP67 Seawater-proof Body

SplashDrone 4 sets the highest standard of waterproofing technology in the drone industry. The tough, rigid fuselage of is made out of marine-grade ABS to withstand wave impact. Each SplashDrone 4 is factory-sealed to the slightest details and air-pressure tested for our exclusive 100% waterproof guarantee. There is no need to concern about losing your expensive drone and important footage in the drink. 


Sea air contains salt, which can damage electronics over time. The waterproof motors and internal electronics of SplashDrone 4 are coated with corrosion-resistant coating adding an extra layer of protection over the already total waterproof design.

Floating Design

SplashDrone 4 can float on the water without the need of attaching pontoons or inflatable rescue jackets. Pilots on a small watercraft no longer need to hand-catch the drone. Anywhere on the water could be the platform for takeoff/landing.


When the SplashDrone 4 turns upside down on the water for any reasons, a Power-Flip feature on the remote controller turns the drone back to the normal state to take the control back.

Waterproof Air-vent

A specially-made waterproof membrane placed on top of SplashDrone 4 hatch lid facilitates ventilating and heat dissipation. It allows the barometer to sense the altitude correctly and prevent the inside electronics from being overheated.

IP66 Waterproof Remote Controller

SplashDrone 4 comes with the industry’s first waterproof remote controller for your worry-free option. Relax and enjoy total freedom while filming, as your SplashDrone 4 remote controller can be used in the rain, sea spray and can even take a dunking in the water. 

All Weather Flyable

Level 7 Wind Resistance

SplashDrone 4 reaches the near-perfect power to weight ratio required to remain stable in a windy situation. 4 high torque and high KV brushless motors provides more thrust than any other consumer-grade drone, keeping SplashDrone 4 on track in winds of up to 31 mph (60 km/h).

Rain & Snow-Proof 

Total water-sealed design keeps moisture out of the electronics inside the SplashDrone 4. The waterproof body by its natures stores the right amount of heat to warm up the battery, ensuring a safe flight in a extreme cold weather.

Creative Freedom, Wherever you Fly


Waterproof 3-axis 4K Camera

Capture smooth videos and crisp photos with the fully waterproof 4K camera stabilized by a 3-axis gimbal. GC3-S is our flagship gimbal camera. The powerful gimbal remains stable against wave impact, and even in water while taking underwater shot. 

Sailing Trip Shot on GC3-S

Raw Supported

GC3-S can shoot raw photo which allows for a variety of editing options in post-production and creates more possibilities for advanced photographers.

Camera Filters

A package of different filters can be added to the GC3-S to reduce sun glare, jello effect and overexposure. By blocking a certain amount of light from contacting the sensor, photographers will be able to film at slower shutter speed and maintain a lower aperture, successfully achieving a footage.

Smooth+ Mode

Dramatic and abrupt movements of a drone can lead to shaky footage. The patented "Smooth+" flight control allows the pilot to finely tune the Roll and Yaw of SplashDrone 4. Smooth+ makes professional, steady flight control as easy as turning the knobs, resulting in ultra-smooth, cinematic footage.

Boat Mode

When switching on the boat mode and attaching 2 floating foams to the aircraft, SplashDrone 4 can sail on water just like a boat. An extension bar extends the reach of the GC3-S camera deep down the water, providing great underwater shots. The amphibious flying boat is great for underwater photography and environmental monitoring. 

Storytelling, from All Angles 






5 KM Image Transmission

The latest 5.8GHz digital image transmitter and adjustable antennas ensures a clear and reliable image and control signal range to the SplashDrone 4 of over 5km (3 miles) while airborne. Pilots can instantly see what the GC3-S camera see on the SDFly App connected to the remote controller through WiFi. 

More on Shooting, Less on Controlling

Intelligent Follow Me

SplashDrone 4 can quickly follow you at a constant angle from the front, side, and back with the camera always pointing to you. The aircraft actively tracks the GPS position of the remote controller, keeping the subject center-frame and making follow shot for a moving boat much easier.

Cruise Mode

The Cruise Mode allows you to set a constant flight speed and direction for your SplashDrone 4. The feature minimizes any camera shake from manual control and result in a smoother and more professional-looking video.

Proprietary Flight Control System

The S3 flight controller of SplashDrone 4 is designed by SwellPro in-house team with algorithms optimized for a wide range of operations in unusual environments - providing exceptional stability and responsiveness.

Dynamic Return to Pilot

The SplashDrone 4 constantly records the GPS position of the remote controller, allowing the aircraft to always return to the pilot‘s position even if they are on a moving boat far away from the original take-off point.

Nonexistent support

- Remote shows flashing GPS even out in the open.
- Can’t arm the motors.
- Camera doesn’t recognize the memory card.
- SDFly for iOS fails to show the map
- Contacts to support go completely ignored.

Other than that, this thing is great!

Sturdy ABS, Carbon Fiber, and aluminum Oh my!

Limited flight time, but it seems to be solid. Inexperienced pilot so a few crashes right away, one being into a tree about 2 meters off the ground, followed by a relatively soft landing on wet, tall grass. No immediate visible damage - thumbs up for that! There were a few flights where it seemed to have 'a mind of its' own', but that could have been either pilot error, or a setting of ATTI instead of GPS, or likely both.. Camera testing continues - I still have to peel off the plastic film on the lens.. App seems to function well, but testing continues. Overall, 4 out of 5 stars seems right for where I am now with it. Really impressed with build quality and materials. If it functions well (i.e. flies, splashes, and takes great video) in the future, then I would rate it 5 stars but cannot until more flight and camera time is achieved. Check out "Sailing A Fedora In The Wind" on YouTube and Patreon for the Unboxing video and content featuring the SplashDrone 4 Filming Edition!

Splashdrone 4 with Thermal Camera

I've been flying this drone for several weeks - learning the nuances. I have Autel and DJI drones as well.
The swellpro is bigger and heavier but needs to be for what it does.
Seems very solidly made. All connections are via metal plates which are removed by hex screws and all connection plates have o-rings to keep out the water and dust.
The thermal camera has numerous pallets, though I primarily use White Hot and Black Hot (olde school :) ).
No issues controlling the drone or camera.
Its working great for me - I plan to get another !!

Problem with android app SDFly2

no acces at all function. no visualization of camera with th phone.
=> bugs. When a new version ?

Dear, If your drone serial number ends with V01/02/03/04, please use SDFly APP. But if ends since V05 ... ect, please use SDFly 2 APP.

A learning kerb

The first day I received it, I took it out to fly. I found it very difficult to handle, until I read the instructional book and watched a lot of u tube videos. After a few days of theory study I guess you could say, I took it out again and flew it according to what I read and watched on U Tube.
Summary, 2 Words Bloody fantastic. I can honestly say It is easy to fly and . The swell pro has given me evey thing I am looking for. Fishing and photography, but I can see other uses for it once I fully understand what it could do.
I had one small problem when it would not pair. I emailed Swell Pro and recieved an answer within 24 hours. Thanks for your prompt answer. You were on the money. MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS PUSHED IN ALL THE WAY.
Plenty more to learn but so far it has given me hours of pleasure and some great photos.
If I can offer some important advice, read the instruction book and watch some videos and your first flight won't be as ugly as mine. Thanks Swell Pro.
