The perfect carbon diving scooter for every purpose

Diver propulsion vehicles (DPV) were once reserved for technical divers, but these times are over thanks to companies like WingsAndMore GmbH & Co. KG that developed carbon composite DPVs for both technical and recreational diving.

The perfect carbon diving scooter for every purpose
Three carbon scooter series are available. All of them provide safe, user-optimised and easy to maintain diver propulsion vehicles. The scooter surfaces have been optimised using hydrodynamic flow simulations to optimise performance. Moreover, the new downsized and optimised electronics use fail-proof components that ensure peace of mind for the user.

Quiet and powerful engines
Brushless, water-cooled torque motors are extremely durable under load and the high torque generated from these motors results in a gearless direct drive. These features yield very quiet, practically wearfree, low maintenance and thermally problem-free efficient power delivery.

Safe propeller
In the event of something getting caught in the propeller, being able to easily remove it is a real benefit. The newly developed quick-lock system allows the propeller to be removed, replaced and safely locked into position again in a matter of seconds. Simple and intuitive handle

The IFC (Infinity Flux Control) guarantees true, single-handed control by simply rotating the settings knob. The propeller speed can be monitored via the LED display. Applying a little pressure on the settings knob will change the display to show the remaining battery capacity and will automatically show a warning signal when the battery is running low on power.

Safe battery
These carbon scooters use the same proven UN-T-certified lithium-ion battery packs that were previously used in the UwaStar battery canisters. Depending on the model, four, six, eight or up to twelve individual high-performance battery packs are installed. In any event, each of them can be charged, checked, inspected and, if necessary, changed individually. The batteries have been adapted for fast charging and a specifically developed BMS (Battery Management System) guarantees safe battery handling and management.

The DUO carbon scooter in action

Balanced and counter-rotated drive system
By the very nature of their design, conventional scooters require the diver to compensate for the torque effect generated by the propeller. This often leads to tiredness and fatigue for the diver and will therefore have a negative effect on the decompression process. The Duo and Twin series scooters work with two counter-rotating drive systems that result in a high-performance, torque-free scooter that can be used in comfort throughout the dive. Despite these two independent drive systems, clever design and construction made it possible for the Duo to remain a very compact scooter.

Variety
All the scooters in the Mono, Duo and Twin series are available in various configurations. Being able to select from these configuration options provides choices of performance, speed and endurance that match the user’s needs. The IFC controller also has multistage or constant speed settings that help conserve battery power.
