    all these "apparel" companies have promoted this behaviour. they care more about clicks(and the advertising revenue that can come from it) than fishing. i went fishing with a kid fresh out of high school that was more preoccupied about getting a selfie to the company that made his face mask than actually fishing. i dont understand why you would even do it, its not like these companies are paying for these pictures. but everyone now is a narcissist, and having your 10 seconds of fame on Instagram by having a company post your dumb face online is worth more to most anglers nowadays than actually catching fish.

    How is this any different from what fishdope and the "Terrance website" do? The have spotter planes that fly over schooling fish and report the location. I'm not for it, or against it. However I guarantee the DFG will ban it just like they did for hunting. PS I have never operated a drone or any plastic flying machine. If I see one near me, it flies it dies PERIOD

    I never said I was against using smartphones or any type of modern day tech. Although I don't think a fishing boat is a place for drones. When I'm on a boat it's time to fish. The phone is off and I'm on the rail. Oh, I'm not that old and if I need a cane it will have a reel on it.

    All of that effort for a "Pro Deal" on a face mask? I guess the next generation of Bernies is more easily motivated by free shit than I had imagined.

    With the new battery technology you can fly your drone for over a half an hour now! Over 4 miles with extended antenna! Taking off and landing are no problem! It sure is nice to go explore and look for fish while you're trolling! For all the haters out there please don't watch my videos! You sound like a bunch of girls from my flying club![​IMG]

    Did you happen to look at any servo based applications? It seems safer to drop from a far distance than attempting to have the clip get stuck.

    Here is an example: http://makezine.com/projects/make-38-cameras-and-av/rc-remote-drop-mechanism/
    I was there last year, but have since changed my mind. It is another tool for fishing. If I want to just chill out and get away, I can do that...if I want to try some drone missions, I can try that out as well. I mean, chit, you drive a loud ass motor boat around, correct? You still need to find the fish.

    If you have an extra channel on your receiver, just hook up a cheap servo to drop the bait. I have an F550 that I used from shore to drop bait far out. Since I got my boat I haven't used it much.

    Don't tell the GF about the new battery technology or you might as well become a priest.
