Fisherman FD1 is a purpose-built waterproof fishing drone for every fisherman. It inherits the same technology from SplashDrone 3+ but removed all the bells and whistles that don’t contribute to bait dropping, thus reducing the cost. A stronger propulsion system enables the FD1 to lift heavier baits, fly longer and more stably in a windy condition.

Drone Shark Fishing with FD1 by Lisharkman
Dedicated for Drone Fishing
Contrary to the multi-purpose SplashDrone 4, Fisherman FD1 cancelled the features and components that are useless for drone fishing. Special algorithms were put into the flight controller of FD1 to ensure that the drone can maintain its altitude and position while lifting heavy baits. And there are many advantages that make FD1 one of the greatest fishing drones in history.
2KG (4lbs) Bait Capacity
High-capacity lipo flight battery, combined with high-torque and high-kv motors powers FD1 to lift baits of up to 2kg. Catch more fish or bigger fish by attaching multiple baited hooks or a big live bait to the line.
Up to 5 Drops per Charge
Thanks to large bait capacity and up to 30 mins flight time, FD1 can make 5 drops of 800 g (1.7 lbs) baits over 600 m (650 yd) on a single battery charge. Increase your fishing success to the next level.
1.6 Km (1 mile) Casting Range
FD1 can operate at a range of up to 1.6 km (1 mile). Land-based anglers can easily cast a long line and drop baits in any hard-to-reach fishing spots, without using a boat or kayak.
The fuselage of FD1 is made out of marine-grade ABS to prevent cracking when lifting weights. The propellers are made out of carbon fiber for high stiffness. FD1 is far more durable than any other consumer-level drone in the industry.
All-weather, All-water Fishable
IP67 Seawater-proof Aircraft
The aircraft of FD1 is 100% waterproof. It is able to land on the water and take off from the water again, always fly safely back to the shore.
Level 7 Wind Resistance
The strong propulsion system and proprietary flight controller are tuned to maximize the flight stability of FD1 in winds up to 20 m/s (38mph).
The waterproof motors and internal electronics of FD1 are coated with corrosion-resistant coating adding an extra layer of protection against the salty sea air.
Heavy on Fishing, Light on Piloting
FD1 incorporates several sensors to increase stability during flight. The GPS/GLONASS can receive up to 11 satellites each and accurately holds the position of the aircraft. A barometer maintains the altitude while a gyroscope keeps the drone balanced in all circumstances. Any fisherman who has no previous piloting experiences can fly FD1 like a professional.
Bait Dropping at your Fingertips
Attaching fishing line into the bait release of FD1 and later releasing it just requires a push on a button on the remote controller.
Drones may have a pendulum motion when flying with a payload. This feature can reduce the pendulum effect on the FD1 by adjusting the acceleration and de-acceleration.
Auto-release & Return
FD1 can automatically release the bait and return to the shore when the battery level reaches a certain low threshold or the drone loses connection.
Bait Releases for FD1 Fishing Drone
Waterproof remote-controlled bait release without camera for blind bait dropping.
Waterproof remote-controlled bait release with an angle-adjustable camera for real-time video viewing.
TS-2 can automatically release the line when it get a strike, good for trolling fishing.
Dual-use GL1 FPV Screen Goggles
When the FD1 is fitted with PL2-F, an optional GL-1 FPV goggles allows you to see what the camera sees in real time. The GL-1can be used as a display screen mounted on the remote controller, or on-face goggles.

This my second year fishing in So.Padre Island, Texas. This is a remarkable flying machine. I have people stopping by daily asking questions, sometimes for over a hour, hope they buy a SwellPro!! Thanks, Steve.
First drone ever bought and im highly satisfied with it. It is easy to fly and operate. Haven't taken it out on the beach yet but I'm hoping a warm day is coming so I can. This is definitely going to be a game changer for my surf fishing.
The drone works perfectly and the controls and initializing are more straight forward then other manufactures. The only draw back that I have experienced is that the case should be a little larger to accomodate slight misalignment issues while stowing the drone and accessories. The closure mechanisms are only glued in place and will pull off unless you have the drone installed 100% exactly as it is packed from the manufacture. Takes more time to stow the drone in its case then it does to set it up. Do not get in a hurry
