Cuta-Copter TRIDENT T5K V2+ Waterproof Fishing Drone
Cuta-Copter has been building the toughest and most reliable fishing drones on the Planet since 2014 – rest assured your Drone fishing has never been so safe, reliable, and fun – It is the best drone for fishing! Industrial grade Flight controller and GPS units have many advantages over consumer grade, providing high level spec sensors and components, with multiple component/sensor redundancies- should a component fail. Cuta is, and has been synonymous with safety and reliability, so it is only natural that we use a flight controller and GPS unit that will provide the best performance and asset safety for our customers. The Nora+ features industrial grade sensors, fast processor, triple, and dual sensor redundancies and now GPS simultaneous connection to all 4 GNSS satellite systems not just 3. In addition, the T5K V2+ has a backup secondary industrial grade compass. This extra processing power and speed comes into its own when intensive in-flight calculations are required, such as lifting heavy baits in windy conditions. Platform reliability and stability is paramount, and this has been achieved by using advanced hardware and software, enabling World first multiple safety features, and multiple hardware redundancies such as three gyroscopes and accelerometers, dual barometers, and compasses. High quality assurance and pre-sale flight testing makes it the best fishing drone in the World period. NB: the higher the weight and wind level will reduce battery life and flight times.
Multiple Safety Functions
- APP display and voice. Visual and verbal messages are broadcast to keep the pilot informed about all aspects of the flight. The system will warn you by voice and display battery level, Height, flight modes, system health and much more. Safety functions and warnings will be verbally announced such as when RTL battery is activated, when a GPS Glitch or Magnetic interference is detected, vibration detection and so on.
- Self-protect Low Battery– The bait release is automatically deployed on Low battery.
- Self-protect Loss of signal– The bait release is automatically deployed on Loss of signal.
- Self-protect Thrust Loss Detection –The bait release is automatically deployed when thrust loss is detected – such as line snag or bird strike to line.
- Self-protect Loss of GPS signal – Verbal warning and automatic mode change to ALT mode ‘Altitude Hold’ non-GPS mode.
- Loss of Signal – Return to Land ‘RTL’ function is activated for loss of signal.
- Low Battery– Return to Land‘RTL’ function is activated on low battery threshold.
- Voltage Monitoring feature – The battery voltage is displayed on the App in addition to verbal updates for easy battery level awareness. In addition, the craft will not arm/start motors if it detects the battery is not at a safe level for flight.
- Anti-pendulum feature (POS.HOLD) mode has a more controlled acceleration and de-acceleration to assist in limiting the degree to which a pendulum motion can occur with the bait.
- RTL speed– Return to Land ‘RTL’ speed has been increased to get the drone off the water as soon as possible.
- Landing detection– The new landing detect feature will shut motors off as soon as the drone detects a landing during auto land from RTL.
- Distance and Altitude Geofence –The parameters are set at factory to 500 metres and a height of 40 metres. (Adjustable for advanced users) RTL can also be set for Alt and Distance breach if required via the APP.
- Magnetic interference monitoring– Auto adjustment and verbal warnings.
- Blackbox– Lifetime Flight recording, Data, and statistics
- Performance Flight Controller– The TRIDENT T5K V2+ features the highly advanced Industrial grade CUAV NORA+ Flight Controller. The NORA+ features a 32-bit ARM® Cortex® H7, 480 MHz Processor with 2mb flash memory and a whopping 1MB of RAM. Breaking that down into layman’s terms – It Rocks. The shear speed data is processed results in supreme flight stability, and this is especially noticeable when carrying baits in high winds. Triple and dual sensors are built in – Feel assured of ultra-reliability as redundancy is built in.
- Main GPS – The CUAV NEO 3 M9N satellite receiver enables simultaneous reception of 4 Global Navigation Satellite Systems ‘GNSS’, not just two like other brands – The BOSS+ connects to all four GNSS satellite platforms being GPS, Galileo, GLONASS and BeiDouh.
- Backup GPS – Industrial grade RM3100 compass.
- Global Satellite Database– With a Global magnetic data base, the compass calibration is only required once not every time you fly in a new location – in layman’s terms – It Rocks!
- SkyDroid T10 10ch Radio – This high-quality radio is fitted with sand covers over the gimbals to improve the overall weather resistance. Flush mounted buttons and low-profile toggle switches have been used to prevent damage. The 2 x 18650 lithium batteries are provided.
- SkyDroid APP– Video feed, Height, Distance, parameters, Map, calibration, Way point mission planning and much more.
- App control – The Android APP allows special touch to fly options such as ARM and Disarm, Take-off, Waypoint missions, follow-me modes and much more. Visual and verbal feedback of Video feed, Height, Distance, Map, calibration, Way point mission planning and much more.
- Water Proofing– The main electronics canopy is waterproof, electronic speed controllers’ ‘ESC’ are sealed in dielectric resin.
- Double flotation– All TRIDENTs are filled with laser cut foam for buoyancy providing level 1 of flotation. The landing feet also provide additional floats.
- Quick Switch – The installed quick switch limits the need to open the battery bay between bait drops. This bridge switch completely stops power draw from the battery.
- Backpack– Cuta Copter comes with a backpack carry case making it easy to carry hands free.
- Reef Spotting Camera – The TRIDENT T5K V2+ is equipped with a HD 720p camera with digital real time video transmission up to 1000 metres. Camera settings like resolution, brightness, contrast, and saturation can all be adjusted via the APP. Pictures can be saved directly to your mobile or tablet.

Recently received my Cuta Copter Trident T5k V2+ Combo from Tony who even spent the time to go through the drone details as well as test fly the drone with me. Tony gives the A1 type of service we all wish more businesses would provide. The drone itself is a beast and is far better than what I’ve previously been flying. I describe it like going from a Tonka truck toy to a Mac truck. Absolutely happy.

Not much point writing a review that’s the same as everyone else. But I can’t really add to the other positive reviews, except to agree that the drone is an excellent fishing drone and Tony provides fantastic after sales service, answering all the questions as they have arisen.

Received my Cuta Copter and since then it’s been a treat from the start when Tony ran me through the set up and at the local park for a test flight with tips n tricks but the service never stopped, I called Tony a few times with beginner’s question and he has always answered and managed to put me on the right track
Awesome fishing drone and customer service from Tony and the team
The drone is the best I have flown for fishing so stable in winds and has the safety features built in to get your beast home every time
Cheers Ultimate Drone Fishing

I have now had my Cuta-Copter trident 5000 for nearly a year. This drone has completely revolutionised my fishing game. The drone itself has taken my fishing levels from bottom feeding flathead and bream to catching high quality snapper and even Pelagics from the same beaches. As fun as drone fishing is, I wasn’t expecting it to level up my game the way it has. The drone itself is absolutely built for the most novice of pilots, to have the ability to safely and confidently fly the drone and drop huge baits out up to 500-600m. It’s built like a tank and flys like a fighter jet. The cuta-Copter controller is very simple to use and understand. Now the best thing about my Cuta-Copter is the ongoing and second to none after sale service / support and assistance that Tony diligently offers. Tony has been there every time I’ve needed him for assistance or support. Tony has given me clear guidance and instructions with the operational functions of the drone which has given me huge amounts of confidence with my drone piloting. I highly recommend the Cuta-Copter Trident if you are looking to get serious about your LBGF and droning. You also will not be disappointed with the ongoing support that Ultimate Drone Fishing offers.
