Water Flying Drone Statistics
It’s an amphibious drone that can swim underwater but also shoot into the sky and act as a quadcopter.
- 3.6 lbs weight
- 6 minutes hover time
- 6.5 feet per second underwater swimming speed
- run without human intervention artificial intelligence only
- Developed by the Chinese
The drone weighs just 3.6 pounds and can hover in midair for six minutes. When it’s underwater, it can swim at a speed of 6.5 feet per second. In addition, the dual aerial and underwater drone does not require human operation.
Its operating system is run entirely by artificial intelligence. The controller of the artificial intelligence system can give the drone a task, and it will complete the task autonomously without human intervention.

What are the benefits of flying amphibious drones?
Drones can help for a variety of reasons, and since a drone can both fly and swim underwater, it’s safe to assume it can be used for some serious missions.
Some of the technology’s missions could include conducting aerial and waterborne surveys, remote sensing, and search and rescue operations.
Professor Ben Chen of the Chinese University of Hong Kong and colleagues will present a paper on drone research at the 2023 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation in London this May.
So until then, we’ll keep an eye out for what other jobs TJ-FlyingFish might be used for.
