San Francisco Bay Area, CA.- Aquacopters has developed a 550mm drone dubbed “THE BULLFROG” that will fly for 30 minutes, have the capability of waterproof first-person-view, and several other very useful functions. Another strong advantage of this design is the increased payload capacity of over 3 pounds to carry additional cameras, extra batteries, lighting, safety equipment; the options are nearly endless. These developments are a direct result from the requests of many customers from the thousands of units that have been sold World-wide.
With support for additional options such as a ground station for programming flight patterns, remotely operated high powered LED floodlight/spotlight, external power switch, and retractable landing gear, the Bullfrog is a masterful innovation in waterproof aerial platforms.
Aquacopter offers The Bullfrog as a complete ready-to-fly (RTF) unit. The soft release has taken place, but look for complete details and pricing to be announced on the company’s Facebook page or their website in October to early November.
