We take every drone and Submerge it in the water and than reverse engineer to develope the Wet Suit in order to sustain whatever went wrong ,
The protection that the Wet Suit Provides the Mini 2 has allowed us to push all the limits when it comes to Severe Weather Conditions/ or landing in the water.
The Mini 2 Wet Suit Provides the Drone with an Air Tight Seal on the Battery and the Power Button every time you fly.
You may think that the prop covers that come with the Mini 2 Wet Suits are used for keeping the Rain out but that is not the case. Those prop covers are critical to keeping out the Salt, Sand and Stones when on the beach.
The DJI motors all use Aluminum Brush-Less motors , these special motors are the exact same motors used in Submercibles designed to negotiate water .
The weak point on the Mini 2 is the Power Button, followed by the Battery when water gets into the Power Button or the Battery the Mini 2 comes crashing down. You only get 1 Warning when flying in the rain : The Battery can no longer connect to the controler and down she goes. its about 5 seconds
This is why the Focus of the Wet Suit was to provide an Air Tight Seal across the perimiter of the battery and the Power Button .
The other weak link is the open ports on the back of the Mini 2 .
We use a two tier approach to create the seal on both ports and lock it in with a tension ring.
Once you have the Mini 2 Geared up with the Wet Suit , you have a completely different drone and when combined with the Mini 2 Rescue jacket able to land dead in the Water without tipping over and you will find cheating death very satisfactory.
Its an amazing combination , a perfect balance of Engineering to remote land on choppy water and take off again witout tipping over..
If you get a minute check out the Mini 2 Rescue Jacket , even if its just to see the Wet Suit in action, its worth seeing just how well the Wet Suit protects the drone in the water and on the waves.
