Bait Capacity

Fisherman can fly stably while carrying 3.2 kg or 7 pounds baits. Heavy baits requires more power so we add a 8800mAh capacity battery with more voltage, high-efficiency 16’’ propellers and high thrust motors. Fly big live bait over 700 meters easily and smoothly with total peace of mind. No other drones can handle payload weights like Fisherman Max.

6 Drops
Per Charge

Fisherman Max boasts unmatched power-efficiency across the industry. On one single battery charge, anglers can have up to 6 bait drops over 400 meters / 437 yards, each with 2 kg / 4 lbs baits. Enjoy more time in the air and better fishing results with Fisherman Max.

Drone-Cast with More Confidence

IP67 Saltwater-proof

A waterproof housing and waterproof motors protects the drone from saltwater damage when in or around the ocean. The battery compartment has a 100% watertight rubber seal to further protect the drone and electronics when the battery is installed.

Float & Flip

When the float bars are attached, the Fisherman Max can float safely on the water and will land and take-off even in saltwater. If the drone accidentally capsizes in the water, you can use the joysticks to flip it back to its normal position, and take off!

Level 6 Wind Resistance

Thanks to industrial-grade propulsion system, Fisherman Max has tremendous power to not only lift big baits, but we designed it to also fly safely in strong ocean winds of up to 40 mph (18m/s), providing you greater control and comfort.

1.5 KM / 1 Mile Casting Range

Fisherman Max can fly up to 1.5 km (1 mile) away from the shore. The specially designed rotatable dual antennas on the drone ensure reliable transmission when the aircraft fliess at a high altitude or close to the water, allowing for better control & clearer video from your drone. Anglers can scan large areas of water quickly and drop baits in remote spots without the use of a boat or kayak.


Fisherman Max is factory-calibrated and doesn’t require re-calibration. The drone can fly stably without calibration on any beach of the world.

Overload Alert

The remote control can immediately send out voice alerts when the weight of the baits exceed the max lift capacity of the aircraft.

30 GPS Satellites

Fisherman Max can receive up to 30 GPS satellites, enabling rock-solid flight stability. The improved hovering precision results in an increased bait accuracy and better GPS lock.

Auto-drop & Return

Fisherman Max can automatically release the baits and return to the shore when the battery reaches a specific low threshold or a loss of signal occurs.

Multi-Color Display

A 5’’ multi-color LCD display is built into the remote controller of Fisherman Max. The display can show the drone’s footage in high definition and in real-time, along with the aircraft status such as GPS coordinates, altitude, and battery voltage. Voice prompts can improve situational awareness and warn the pilots to potential dangers. Without using your phone, the remote controller has everything you need for a safe and smooth control at all times.

4K Camera 

The Fisherman Max is fitted with a waterproof 4K camera that can shoot clear footage with high detail and accurate colors. The camera can be tilt up and down on the remote controller to broaden your field of view and will let you record your epic fishing experience with video on an SD Card.

Fish Scouting

Watch the drone’s live footage to survey underwater structure, channels and read the tides, and even locate fish on the surface! Increase your chances of catching that trophy fish with your very own “eye in the sky”.

Cast Accuracy

Pointing the drone’s camera straight down, anglers can place their baits right in the strike zone with precision and good timing - enticing the fish to strike.

Portable Design

Fisherman Max can fold up its arms and easily fit into a small carry case or your fishing cart. The arms and propellers are both made from carbon fiber for reduced weight yet increased stiffness. Its compact and lightweight design makes it much easier to transport to the beach than other similar sized drones.



When used with the FDFly APP, the Auto-Fish feature allows the Fisherman Max to automatically fly to fishing spots you’ve marked on the APP’s map and then drop baits on those specific spots. This makes drone fishing even easier for those who have little or no previous drone experience.
