Question
FPVfactory Mariner vs QuadH2O

Those 2 (Mariner and QuadH2O) seem to be the only available waterproof multirotors. I know there are also some waterproof frames available, but as having too little experience and skills for DIY I'm looking for an ARF build.

If somebody owns Mariner or QuadH2O, please share the pros and cons - especially the cons.

It would be really interesting to know how far can they fly - I want to fly by a pedefined route (using WKM with waypoints), and the flight range is an important factor for me. I've seen some flight times published here and there, but nothing about the horizontal speed...

The Mariner flight range can fly up to 1km. It depends on the controller. The horizontal speed of Mariner can be 9meter/second.

I wonder how Naza M lite is able to HOLD ALTITUDE when the quadcopter is waterproof? Can you help us clarify how you solved barometer readings when the frame is closed?

Hi, I just got mine and there's a waterproof membrane in the middle of the plexiglass so the air pressure can be recognized on the inside.

Don't need to deploy flares. The ability to drop water balloons on folks may come in handy occasionally. FPV, follow me, and flight programming are useful, but for one living on the waterfront in a place with lots of rain, it is the waterproofness that sold me. I will be buying in at the $1500 level, even though the Canadian dollar is down at 80 cents these days.
