Fishing drones are growing fast these days, but if you don't want to spend a lot of money in buying a new fishing drone and want to take advantage of regular drones, so it is a good idea to build a DIY fishing drone or a DIY drone kit and have fun fishing. The most important thing in the production process is the release device. Here is the instruction of how to make a DIY fishing drone release device:
1. First of all, create some connection points to the flying fishing drone. Locating the center of the drone main body will help avoid uneven loads on the propeller. It is recommended not to place the attachment on the cardan joint or the camera, otherwise the camera may be damaged, so it is better to attach it to the leg of the drone or the undercarriage. If there are no legs on the drone, attach it to hard materials like the motor prop.
2. The next step is to install the release device. The best method is to attach a downward release clip to the attachment. You can connect it by binding and make sure it is fastened. In this step, the fishing line should be kept at a certain relaxation degree to ensure the release at the right time.
3. Finally, connect the fishing line to the release device. Open the reel so that the line can extend freely without any resistance. Fly the drone, let the drone fly over the fish with your bait, and control the reel until the release clip ejects the bait. It is recommended to test several times before fishing to make sure that the elastic force on the device and the line relaxation degree are just right.
After completing the installation, you can enjoy yourself in fishing as well as watching the spectacular images transferred back by the DIY cheap drone for fishing, which can fly up to 1,200 feet.
