Kiwi Drone Fishing Tips

So you have just bought yourself a new fishing drone from us, We have put together some very helpful tips to get your started.

 

 

First flight

A )Your first flight should always be in a big park or open beach, well away from people and animals and trees. This is just in case you do something wrong, there is less risk. It’s also a good idea for your first flight NOT to be over water, and forget trying to fly a baited trace out to sea on your first flight.

Fully Charge your drone

B ) Always make sure you have fully charged your drone battery and also the remote control battery before you attempt to fly. Even if you think there is a charge in the battery but don’t know for sure – then don’t fly it.

Calibrate your drone

Make sure you calibrate the drone before your first flight. This is an important step for most drones before any flight, so it’s a good idea to learn how to calibrate your drone properly. Also, DON’T Calibrate the drone with the propellers installed already. This is a safety measure because you will need to spin the drone in your hands. Once the Calibration is complete, then you can install the propellers.

Stay in GPS Mode

This mode is sometimes called different things, depending on what drone you have. In GPS Mode the drone uses a GPS while in flight to ensure that it holds in one location (horizontally) while you are not controlling it with the Joysticks. This makes the drone much easier to fly (as it will not drift with the wind, which is what you get if you are instead in ATTITUDE, or MANUAL Mode). So if you leave the drone in GPS Mode right from the start, this is the best option and this means that the drone will hold both altitude and GPS Position.

Understand the Switches and Buttons

Be sure you go through the buttons and controls on your remote, fully understand & familiarise yourself with what each means before your first flight, apart from understanding how the joysticks behave, buttons or switches like “Return to Home”, “Manual Mode”, “Auto Landing” are all functions of the remote that you need to get used to using.

First flight DON’T use the Phone APP to control the drone

For your first flight, it’s a good rule of thumb NOT to try and fly using the Phone & APP to begin with. Use the Remote Control ONLY to control the drone. This means using the drone in full “manual control”, so that you are using the Joysticks to control the height, and the movement of the drone horizontally while in the air, rather than say and Autocast or waypoint mission features of the APP (where the drone is using full autopilot to be controlled). By using the remote control, this gives you the basic feel for the drone in the air an how it handles, and a better understanding of the drone without the additional complication of the APP (and all the different functions and features that the APP has also). For your first flight it’s enough to just get your head around controlling the drone solely using the remote control.

Always point the nose of your fishing drone away from you

Once you have completed all of the above, and you are ready for your first flight put the drone in front of you and stand at a good distance away from it ( behind it and to the side ). The nose or front of the drone should always face away from you and the area you are looking to fly in should be the area that the nose of the drone is facing. Never try to fly behind yourself as this just adds complication that you don’t need until you become really proficient at drone fishing.

Be gentle with the Joysticks

Don’t get too cocky, too quickly and instead ease into using the joysticks with small movements, particularly with things like taking off and landing. Mistakes are more likely to happen if you are too aggressive with the joystick controls until you are more experienced and confident.One of the big problems is sending your drone out to fast, its not a race so back it off to 70% to allow action if something like a birds nest does happen on your rod & reel.

Learn to Drone Fish

So many just watch youtube videos and think they are experts, learn the right way from the start by getting a leason from Malcolm from Learn to Drone Fish on facebook.

 

Hopefully the above general tips and hints you will find helpful and get you set up right from the get-go. If you start out with the correct information, and then learn the best practices from there, you are more likely to enjoy your early fishing drone experiences.

Refer drone insurance people ask us, its very easy buy the right drone to do the job correctly from the start, and take the time to learn how to do it right !!.
