The SwellPro Fisherman is the only water resistant fishing drone engineered to deliver your baits and long lines up to 1.5 km.
The Fisherman means you don’t need a boat to get to the best coastal fishing spots. Shore-based anglers can dramatically extend the casting range and drop multiple baits up to 2kg at once.

Easy to use and Compact Design

Comes in a compact hard case which contains everything needed & is also easy to use even for novices.  The FD1 is regarded as a “no-nonsence” fishing drone that does exactly what it is intended to do – help you catch more fish

2kg Bait Capacity

With its superior 2kg payload capacity, the SwellPro Fisherman gives you the flexibility to carry more than 10 baited hooks or lures on each cast or drop heavy live baits for sharks or tuna.

Mechanical Payload release

The SwellPro Fisherman offers two optional electric payload release mechanisms. Remotely and precisely drop baits at the target location with push-button convenience.


Mechanical payload release without the camera for effortless Bait drops using a switch on the remote controller.



You don’t need to drive a boat to troll for fish. With the SwellPro Fisherman, you can troll your line to attract pelagic fish. The optional TrollSafe release device can automatically release the line when you get a strike. Adjust the release to suit the conditions. TrollSafe can also protect your drone in case of a reel jam or a bird striking your line.


Seawater resistant

The fuselage of the SwellPro Fisherman is made from industrial-grade ABS and is designed to resist water entry.
Both the external waterproof motors and internal electronics are coated for further corrosion resistance. No more tragedy of DJI-fishing-gone-wrong.

Go against the wind

The new propulsion system and flight computer are tuned to maximized control responsiveness and allow the Fisherman to fly in winds up to Beaufort Force 7.


Multi-cast per charge

A new 6700mAh/4S high-voltage lithium battery provides up to 30 minutes of flight time (without bait), allowing 3 or more bait drop missions from a single battery charge (distance & payload weight dependent).



Upto 1.5 km casting range

The new remote controller supports control distances of up to 1600m. You will probably run out of line before your run out of range with your SwellPro Fisherman.

Simplified remote controller

The new remote controller keeps flying simple. The integrated high-brightness 3-inch digital display provides critical flight information so you don’t need a phone or tablet to fly your baits. Even novices can learn how to fly the SwellPro Fisherman in a short time.


Fly safe


Anti-Pendulum Feature

Drones may have a pendulum motion when flying with a payload. This feature can reduce the pendulum effect on the Fisherman by controlling the acceleration and de-acceleration.

Failsafe Return

In case of loss of signal, or when the battery level reaches a low threshold, the Fisherman drone will automatically release the fishing line and return to its starting point.
*Note that the silicon cover for the remote as depicted in some of the images does not come in this pack
