SKY RIGGER is a simple drone fishing release mechanism that has been designed to minimise the difficulty and increase your catch rate. No matter where you are fishing – freshwater, estuary, inshore or offshore, a whole new exciting sport has opened for all anglers.
SKY RIGGER is made up of two distinct parts: the drone mount and release mechanism.
The fully adjustable drone attachment includes two rotating leg clamps, allowing it to be mounted to the entire DJI Phantom range and many other drone models (see FAQ’s for a full list of compatible drones). A bayonet-style connection has been specifically designed for the release mechanism making set up quick and easy on the go.
The release mechanism pressure is adjusted via the tension dial, with the cam-lock arm designed to open and close the line clamps quickly. Because the line is released by pressure, the mechanism works without batteries, accommodating all types of fishing techniques safely.
SKY RIGGER’s intelligent design features enable the line to release automatically when a fish strike. This functionality has been meticulously tested to minimise the risk of your drone being pulled into the water.
You can release the line manually with a yank of the rod or the pull of a hand, giving you ultimate control, whichever fishing technique you use. The sleek and safe design has no fishing line catch points, and a unique built-in swing stopper to prevent the fishing line from interfering with the gimbal or camera.
SKY RIGGER’s swivel and pivot system is designed to rotate 360 degrees
horizontally and 180 degrees vertically. This exclusive feature allows you to manoeuvre the drone freely in any direction without the risk of tangles. The release mechanism pivots 180 degrees backwards so your drone can land evenly on its feet.
With SKY RIGGER, targeting offshore species is accessible to everyone. For the first time, people who either do not own or are unable to board a boat can try fishing. SKY RIGGER gives you the opportunity to catch offshore game fish, such as tuna, mackerel, and marlin from the shore.
SKY RIGGER is a revolution in fishing; it is a whole new way to experience the sport and capture, relive and share unseen perspectives of fishing action like never before.
No batteries: SKY RIGGER does not require batteries or linkage to the drones LED lights – ready to go at any time.
Tension dial: The purpose-built adjustable tension dial allows any type of fishing line to work with SKY RIGGER, giving you the ultimate control, while letting you fish your way.
Swivel and pivot system: SKY RIGGER’s swivel and pivot system is designed to rotate 360 degrees horizontally allowing your drone to manoeuvre freely in any direction, without the risk of tangles. The release mechanism pivots 180 degrees vertically so your drone can land evenly on its feet.
Sleek and safe design: SKY RIGGER’s patented features have been specifically designed to have no fishing line catch points. The line is attached below the drone’s legs which is a safer distance from the propellers compared to other products on the market.
Detachable release mechanism: We developed a bayonet fitting to detach the fishing release mechanism quickly, this allows your drone to fit back in any case without removing SKY RIGGER. This feature will also make it possible to attach a range of new accessories that we are developing. Stay tuned!
Swing Stopper: The built-in Swing Stopper prevents the fishing line from interfering with the gimbal or camera. This ensures you have clear vision at all times and helps protect your drone from being tangled.
No VPS interference: Tested and designed with rotating attachment clamps allow the SKY RIGGER to mount vertically or horizontally to avoid interference with your drone’s sensors.
Stability: SKY RIGGER mounts close to the drone’s centre of gravity, so the direct weight is dispersed evenly between both legs, this allows you to lift heavier baits safely without affecting the drone’s manoeuvrability or stability.
Drone safe: Intelligent design features prevent tangles and enable the line to release automatically when a fish strike. This functionality has been meticulously tested to minimise the risk of your drone being pulled into the water.
No drone modifications: No drone modifications required, SKY RIGGER is easily mounted to the drone legs and can be removed quickly.
Compatible: Rotating clamps combined with the telescopic arms allow mounting on vertical, horizontal, or diagonal drone legs. SKY RIGGER is adaptable for a range of drones, see FAQs for full list of compatible drones.
Compact: The SKY RIGGER’s compact and lightweight design has low impact on your drone’s battery usage during flight.
Quality materials: High quality corrosion resistant construction is future proofed and built to last. We engineered the SKY RIGGER with Injection moulded Glass Filled Nylon, Marine Grade Brass C464 and 316 Stainless Steel.
Carry case included: SKY RIGGER comes with a padded foam protective case, small enough to pack in your tackle box, backpack, or drone case. We supply a custom designed fish tool to adjust SKY RIGGER quickly on the go.
