I really hope I can get great footage of others hooked up to fish. We might need to make an agreement, I film, you catch, we share :lol: :lol: Looking vertically downwards into the cobalt blue water with a big fish hooked up would be awesome.
Ok I shared my fish now you have to follow me around on the next trip :evilgrin: now I know what cobia feel like I'm sure I wont mistake them for sharks now :wtf: wait hmmm :shhh: I probably will :o when I send that gaff home and lift it's head outa the water to find it's a shark I will cut the head off and call it for cobia :evilgrin:

Hey Pete, the drone looks fantastic. Only problem I can see is how are you going to change batteries with both hands busy fighting your next marlin? Might need the extra long life battery :lol:

Just put the rod in the rod holder, it will be fine. 8-)

Paul raises a good point, in that what happens when the fish fight lasts longer than the battery

I have 4 batteries. No problem changing them on the water.

I have 4 batteries. No problem changing them on the water.
My thinking was that, if the fish fight lasts 30minutes and you hook up with 8minutes left of battery, are you likely to want to chuck the rod in a holder to get the drone back, landed, battery changed and then send it back up again.

Will depend a little on the fish on the other end of the line. Even some drone footage of the fight be less boring than what I do now I reckon. Ideally I can film others catching big fish.

Good point, and to be honest you could cut and splice the drone footage with on board footage to make it appear like the whole fight was filmed.

Having more than one camera is the easiest way of avoiding jump cuts
