Today’s better drones are pretty easy to land on flat ground, but if you’re flying over water, it can ruin your fancy flying tech if you end up putting down in the wet. The Drone Raft Waterstrider is an attachment for the DJI Phantom 3 or 4 that allows you to take off and/or land your drone on water.
The Waterstrider will allow for water landings and takeoffs thanks to those buoyant foot pads, but it also comes in handy for rough terrain like rocks, sand, even snow. The design was inspired by certain types of insects that gently sit on top of the water using the large surface area on their legs.
The kit is made from an ultra-lightweight carbon fiber and high-impact polymers that are super durable. You can add it to your drone or remove it in just 1 minute.
