J5 Drone

We are proud to introduce to you the J5, a truly low cost, easy to use, portable underwater drone.

Now you can fly around underwater, exploring depths quickly and easily without having to get wet!

With real time HD video over Wi-Fi, you can see everything the J5 sees as it makes its journey under the water using your smartphone, tablet or laptop. Depths of up to 100m are just a few moments away.

Why choose the J5:

  • The underwater world is inaccessible without physically having to dive in yourself. This can be a barrier without the right equipment and training, and can also be inconvenient. With the J5 you can access this world in just a few moments, safe and dry, without any special dive training.
  • It's the only low cost underwater drone with a full 170 degree tilting camera. This feature is very important if you need to view items below in detail, or above such as a boat hull.
  • With high quality real time HD video over Wi-Fi, images are crystal clear. Videos can be recorded and shared easily.
  • Using a removable on-board battery, there is no ac supply required. Since the battery can be swapped when discharged, there is less limitation on dive time.
  • Control is via a popular classic wireless gamepad, making the J5 extremely easy to pilot. Unlike difficult to control touch screen methods, this takes little time to master.
  • Since radio waves don't travel well underwater, all underwater drones need a wired tether to control them. The J5's tether has a special outer jacket so it's neutrally buoyant in water, which makes it much easier to pilot. It also contains Kevlar fibres which provide a massive 150kg breaking strain.

Whether you are visiting local lakes or reservoirs, exploring dive sites, researching marine life, completing boat maintenance, or just having fun on the shore, the J5 can be transported with ease.

The possibilities are endless. Approximately 72% of the Earth is covered in water - that's a lot of exploring to do!
