Qysea Fifish V6 Underwater Drone 50 meter tether
FIFISH V6 – A Underwater Changer
The FIFISH V6 is a real underwater changer in the world of the underwater drones, there are always nice thing to add but considering the options that the market is offering us, the FIFISH V6 is truly amazing.
FIFISH V6 Main Features
Here are the main great features of the FIFISH V6:
- Free motion.
- Ability to rotate 360° degrees in rolling, panning and tilting. That’s alone is super amazing.
- It has a posture lock.
- 4K camera.
- Ultra-wide view of 166° degrees.
- Head tracking using a VR.
- 4.5 hours of battery life.
- 1- 1.5 hr charge time
- Depth rating of 100 meters.
- A bright light of 4000 lumens.
- HDMI Box
FIFISH V6 – 6 Thrusters – A true Freestyle Movement
One of the amazing and crucial difference in features of the FIFISH V6, which makes it unique and stand out over all the others in its’ category, is its movement ability.
QYSEA FIFISH V6 gives you a complete 6 levels of freedom. It can move laterally, forward, backward, up, down, as well as roll, pan, and tilt. This is thanks to the 6 thrusters that the V6 has. Other only have 3 or four thrusters.
In addition, you can also combine different movements, such as arc, nose dive, spiral, etc.,
The V6 has great rotation stability while performing 360 degrees of rotation in the 3-dimension space.
Another outstanding feature of the FIFISH V6 is the posture lock. Posture lock means that you can lock the posture of the V6 within a precision of 1 degree and 5 centimeters of depth accuracy. For example, saying you tilted the V6 for 80 degrees in order to watch a fish. You can lock it, and while keeping that posture, you can move the V6 freely to any direction you want.
One of the main reasons you buy an underwater drone is to capture the underwater world on video. So, having a great camera, is highly important.
The FIFISH V6 has an outstanding underwater image, using an underwater image algorithm and color rendition, along with their 1/2.3” sensor (which is like most of the underwater drones – like the CCROV, Nemo, Gladius Mini and etc) it will provide you with a great underwater image.
The FIFISH V6 has, in addition, an interactive video sharing for social media platforms, including live streaming.
And in case you send out the FIFISH V6 to darker places, which does not have enough light, don’t you worry, the V6 has 2 strong led lights to light up the scene for you. Each led light is 2000 lumens, giving you a strong 4000 lumens all together.
Slow Motion Video
Another cool thing about the FIFISH V6 is its video modes. So, except for having the great 4K quality (with 30FPS – ultra high definition), the V6 has a 1080p mode with amazing 120FPS. 120FPS means you can have slow motion videos.
3 Types of Control
As a drone pilot, the FIFISH V6 offers you 3 flexible ways to control it.
- Attitude mode
- Sports Mode
- Head Tracking Mode
The attitude mode was designed for beginners, and also allowing you one-click of depth stabilization.
The sports mode was designed for advanced pilots. It offers customized control applications and creative shooting functions.
Head tracking mode means, you are controlling the V6 using a VR Goggles. Using the goggles will make it easier for you to maneuver and will give you accuracy while tracking a fish, a diver or anything else you can think of. The experience will be the same as controlling any other FPV you are familiar with.
FIFISH V6 – Price
Well, the price is another surprise with the QYSEA announcement. When I first saw the capabilities of the FIFISH V6, I thought to myself that this ROV is going to be around 3000$, considering its amazing features, not less than 2500$. However, when I saw their price I was shocked. QYSEA has 2 flavors for the FIFISH V6. The first flavor comes with 50 meters tether and it will cost you 1599$, and the second flavor comes with a 100 meters tether and this will cost you 1699$.
I recommend you to add those 100$ to get the 100 meters tether, instead of the 50 meters. Even if you are not going to use it in deep waters, having the possibilities in the future to go deeper and far will be an important thing for you. You won’t be disappointed, I promise you that.
Who is the FIFISH V6 best for?
With all the mentioned features that the FIFISH V6 has, the V6 is a fantastic solution for:
- Underwater photographers – unlimited angles, a capability to produce the creative and revolutionary underwater footage.
- Yacht owners – who would like to inspect their boats without needing to dive every time. And also record their sailing.
- Search & Rescue teams – Will help for searching in dark places and hard conditions.
- Anglers that would like to learn a new spot in a precise way.
Other than that, the FIFISH V6 is for everyone that can allow himself to spend 1700$ (with 50 meters tether, or 1800$ with 100 meters tether) for an underwater drone which will record his next water vacation at the best possible way. For sure, the FIFISH V6, is an enjoyable “toy” that you will refuse to take your hands off.
Now I am leaving you with all the important numbers which make the V6 so great.

I will keep you all posted about the exact market release once QYSEA will inform. This time, I hope QYSEA will get the public attention, they really deserve.
6 thrusters, 4K camera, 166 degrees of field view, totally free movement, posture lock and 4 hours of battery life definitely make the V6 as the best underwater drone so far for 2019. And it will be hard to beat it.
