Wow !! That is impressive. That drone certainly has plenty of payload capacity. How much weight was carried out (lead)?

Around about 16oz at each end, yes it is very impressive payload! At one stage we were testing the release meachnism by lifting a 2 litre bottle filled with water and dropping it.
It also flies in a decent wind as well, sorry I can’t remember up to what velocity wind speed it can fly in but it is also impressive.
As I said, Keith practised flying the drone over farmland for a good month or more to become a very proficient pilot before embarking on actually fishing. And the drone is only used over water for fishing, never over land.

I suspect that it would be way outside my budget. Looks to me to be around $10,000 including rod with power reel etc. :shock: It is very cool though ;)
