Hope Phantom 5 is an amphibious UAV!!!

Now that's an interesting idea! Something to rival the Splash range of drones!

Actually, I doubt you would seriously need a gimbal underwater. The water makes movements much slower than in the air, and kind of stabilizes by itself. Think the difference between a vibrating, airborne drone and a camera in a relatively dense liquid. Nevertheless, as they use brushless motors, there are no exposed contacts: you could simply coat all the motor with a thin resin wash and that should just about solve the problem.

Wrong on so many levels.

When you get close to the surface - any wave motion will throw the ROV about quite a lot.  If you have a fixed camera - this will give you really really shaky images.

We have fixed cameras on our ROVs - and we spend as little time as possible at the surface.  We only go there to inspect structural componets of an oil-rig platform at the 'splash', LAT or surface.

It can also very dangerous - as the wave motion can throw the ROV against hard surfaces such as structural members.

If you have a recreational ROV and you go near rocks - then you won't have a recreational ROV for long.

You will get smoother water at 5-10 metres depending on surface conditions - but if this new 'ROV' can only go a few feet or a couple of metres under water - you'll never get smooth imagery like you do at the moment with aerial drones that have gimbals.

"Underwater drones" are called ROVs - Remotely Operated Vehicles and have been called such for well over 20 years.

Get the terminology right please.

I notice DJI haven actually commented on the leaks I guess they are looking to who might have leaked it seeing as they have had a few issues with internal employees ripping them off!

Like the idea and funny if it was all a hoax either on DJI's part as mis direction, maybe they have secretly gone straight to the Phantom Air 6 water proof, dual cam separate modules, 360 cams top and bottom and a FLIR/Night Vision cam.

Hope its not just a cam! I havent thought of my birthday present yet!

I am excited! My guess is it is a phantom 5 with improved camera, battery, obstacles avoidance and tons of new flight modes that will set it apart from the mavic pro 2. But I would also love to see a mavic air 2 or a spark 2.

I thought it was obvious, this is an action camera...

Any chance DJI releases a drone with a modular camera gimbal to allow for Osmo Action cameras to be swapped out? Keep the drone, upgrade the camera with something new to get the latest specs each year? When you're not flying it, you can mount it on a helmet/ATV/surfboard, etc? If you crash it in water, the camera/your images/video are not lost?

I supposed you weren´t going to film near the surface, but a bit deeper. You´re right anyways

Not sure DJI owners needing an action cam don't already own one.  If it's an action cam, is there some writing on the wall that drones are no longer the business to be in?  I hope it's a new drone but whatever it is, I won't be buying it until the bugs are worked out.  Not interested in another fiasco.

Well I need a new action cam so you blew that.
