    "It weights 4lbs or 1.1kg" 🤔 Only in America.

    Imagine if they made these for the air!

  6. Cheddar323 on May 27, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    drones in the air don’t need to be tethered, and can stabilize themselves in wind.

    Is this worth it???? Or should i get gladios mini???? Im stuck between the two

  15. John Gyver on May 27, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Interesting, but I’m not sure I’d buy it, because at the beginning it’d be 1 or 2 hours of playing with it and having fun, but after that I’d probably get bored with it, and as it’s just a toy without any practical use cases (for me) it’d probably regret buying it.
    One technical suggestion for the manufacturer: Maybe it’d be a good idea to put the battery in that floating Wi-Fi module and make it easily replaceable (e.g. one in use, another one charging). It’d make that drone useful for people who search for stuff underwater more professionally – those search sessions often take hours/days straight.

    so cool

  18. LGsus on May 27, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Just wait a couple yrs for the wireless version of this. Still cool tho!

  19. Ben Haze on May 27, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    That is an expensive toy to loose to tree branches inevitably present at bottom of lakes. Cool gadget although video quality is so-so; interesting review!

  20. Alan Walker on May 27, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    No entiendo ingles

  21. Mucka Ch on May 27, 2022 at 7:24 pm

  22. Benson Dental Associates on May 27, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    It would be cool if it had an auto return home like DJI drones

  29. Cornbreadfed Kirkpatrick on May 27, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    If there any older subscibers why not the flying sub?

  30. R R on May 27, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    I can see drug smugglers using something similar lol

  31. Hyun Woo Kim on May 27, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    many people gonna use drones in future. when they have half price of this one. too expensive still

  32. Tony Dolton on May 27, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Cable!?

  33. EyesOfByes on May 27, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    I sure hope it’s Wifi6.

  34. Philip fish 50 on May 27, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    I seen someone else’s video and it packed up working and two goes plus the app doesn’t work on most phones if your thinking of buying any underwater drone watch more videos of not just this one but any your basically paying 500. Dollars for a forty dollar child’s toy

  35. Jake Riffle on May 27, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Going to go find the Titanic, bye.

  36. DMC on May 27, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    $500 is steep for this for me. If it had a better camera and light and SD card slot Id be Happier. The App seemed a bit cruddy and had connection issues with my android phone. I got a waterproof case for an I pad and it works awesome. Chasing did get back to me fast and wanted to help me fix the problem. It would cost more to build your own.

  37. Colin Stoker on May 27, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    49 Foot depth is weak sauce when talking about under water depths.

  38. Arm312 on May 27, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    i am looking at getting one of these. I read a lot of reviews where people had a lot of issues with the ap, the rov itself. how long have you had it? any issues? do you recommend?

  39. J.MAGNI on May 27, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    This but with a gyro and a better camera. I hope DJI goes this route in the future.

  40. Aam. Edición y Video on May 27, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Question, can we replace the Chasing Dory cable with a longer one? greetings from Concepcion Chile!

  41. Nishal Kv on May 27, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    This is cool
    Can I buy this channel
    Do u guys agreed with me ?

  42. Bolerophon on May 27, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    Wait, its not wireless?🙄

  43. ThatDroneGuy on May 27, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    "plays a little pirate tune"??? 🤣🤣🤣 I’m guessing this guy has never used an ESC before. That’s the standard tune that any ESC makes (the motors actually) when it connects with the flight controller. I’m a little surprised that they didn’t program a new tune in it’s place. All that work to design and engineer an underwater drone and they didn’t even figure to give it a cool ESC tone.

  44. rsaxtellartist on May 27, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    If the GPS gives you relative orientation, then a digital compass might not be needed, and maybe a sort of grid screen over the thruster ports to keep out weed and gunk, this would be so versatile. I’ll bet the few minor problems you encountered with this model will be addressed in a future model. Good luck!

  45. Lemuntis on May 27, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    How much it costs?
