It would be cool, for example if we could track fish and whale populations, map ocean pollution, and so on.

Yes, it would be cool, but it will not work in VR because the latency will be awful. Pushing Full-HD-3d in realtime with low latency through a thick layer of water from a free moving drone without a cable will not happen in the forseeable future.

Yep, you're totally right. It didn't click earlier how video in general - as it's recorded now, just won't be able to take advantage of VR. :) Besides, for stuff like mapping there's no need to have a human controller. Just send out a swarm of automated drones, and have them bring back the data.
