Welcome to some weekend fun and entertainment with drones. We spend a lot of time scouring the web for news, information and more on all the great drones around the globe. In our travels, we encounter some fun and funny stuff, and we want to start sharing that with you.
Let us call this a new series here on the site, the Good Idea / Bad Idea series. Let it be known that we do not endorse or recommend anything we will post here, sort of a “do not try this at home” vibe, but somebody tried it, it was funny and here it is.

Next up in our series, taking your drone to the lake. Well, not just taking it to the lake, but, like, seriously taking it to the lake.
Before we begin, let’s get a few things out of the way:
|We’ve got all the Best drones here, or check out our master Drone Rush drones list!
Bad idea: using any old drone you can get your hands on
You’ve seen it before, now see it again, a handful of folks that were either unlucky or irresponsible with their drones. I urge you all to take the time to plan your flight and watch your power levels so you can avoid going for an unwanted swim. Don’t be like these people.
Good idea: a seriously waterproof drone
There are a handful of drones out there that are made specifically to get wet. We’re not talking about submarines, we mean true flying craft that can either land on water or go submerged themselves. I’ll send you over to our Best Waterproof Drones list to see a few of the best, but one stands out for us, the SwellPro SplashDrone.
The machine you see in the video is the third iteration in the SplashDrone series. It’s still in service, but the SplashDrone 3 Auto and SplashDrone 3 Fishing Edition are a little more specific to filming and fishing needs. Of course, you are paying for quality, look to drop $1400 for the fishing model, $1700 for the 4K camera Auto model.
Good idea / bad idea wrap up
As always, we officially recommend you do not try this at home. We want you to always fly safe, to obey all drone laws, but also to have some fun.
If you think this entire series is a bad idea, let us know in the comments below. Otherwise, enjoy the crazy antics caught on film.
