The GLADIUS is a professional-grade underwater drone with a 4K Ultra HD camera which drone pilots can operate via their smartphone. Therefore this underwater drone is ideal for scuba divers, yacht owners, and filmmakers as well as for commercial and rescue purposes.

  • Max. depth: 100 m (330 ft) allows drone pilots to record at great depths.
  • LED lights: divers can adjust the dimming LED lights which are optimized for use in water, therefore providing great lighting.
  • Changeable ballasts: the GLADIUS offers replaceable seawater/freshwater ballasts, thus it can be used in all types of water.
