The $1.5-million Deepflight Dragon could be the ultimate gadget for thrill seekers. Powered by an underwater lithium battery pack good for 6-hours of cruising, the two-person submersible measures 16.4 feet long, 6.2 feet wide, and has been designed for easy piloting. Special Dive Manager software monitors all of the sub’s critical functions, and sets the depth limit for the dive, letting you enjoy the scenery, while an automatic stabilization system keeps it level during pitch and roll. That’s not all, it can hover in the water, in addition to diving down up to 400-feet. Continue reading for a full video review, more pictures and additional information.
“In addition to a pair of rear lateral thrusters, the Dragon also uses two sets of vertical thrusters (at the nose and stern) to give the sub hovering capabilities. These are controlled with a single lever on the left side of the sub’s cockpits that govern depth. (The sub can be controlled by either the front or rear pilot.) On the right, a joystick controls forward thrust and steering – and that’s basically it,” according to Robb Report.
