The Best Waterproof Drones that Float on Water – 2022

The number of drones designed to land and take off on water is still small, but the number is slowly growing. We believe most well-known consumer drone manufactures will have their own floating drones in the near future. The benefits of having a drone that can float are obvious, the main reason being that it allows you to land on rivers, lakes and oceans — on purpose, or in an emergency!  As floating drones become more popular, we recommend you check whether the drone is capable on landing and taking off from the water, or if the drone is only capable of landing on the water. You wouldn’t want to land the drone in the middle of a lake and find out it isn’t able to take off again!

Goolsky Q353 Triphibian Air-Ground-Water Drone

The Q353 Triphibian is the most budget friendly drone on our list. It features air, ground, and water modes. The orange casing and the continuous flashing LED lights provides better visibility of the drone in low light settings. If the drone becomes submerged or has flipped upside down in the water, it will roll itself the right way up! With a 1200mAh battery, flight time is about 7 – 10 minutes on a full charge.
