CRACUNS the drone that can "swim"

ImageThe Scientists at John Hopkins have developed a Quadcopter drone that can stay under saltwater for two months and still fly!

This monster is called CRACUNS and can be launched from 60 m depth.

It will probably not be very operational under water but it can be launched from there or hide there.
Have a look at this video:

Used real Carbon Fibre; you can see the wrinkles on the fabric. Trying to bag and cure it with those contours is not easy; interesting build.
