A Serious Drone - Built to Fish
Extend your casting range and drop multiple baits at once. The enhanced propulsion system provides the drone with more power and stability to handle all-weather flying. External and internal waterproofing protection gives you more confidence when hunting in marine environments.
Don’t risk taking a normal drone to the beach, you need a tough, waterproof drone made for the job
Precision Fishing Line Release
The SplashDrone 3+ is engineered to deliver your long line up to 1.6 kilometer away and drops your baits or lures exactly where you need them.
Unlike some DIY drone fishing rigs or third-party bait droppers, the waterproof release modules on the SplashDrone 3+ precisely deploy your line with a simple flick of a switch on the remote controller.
The SplashDrone 3+ is purpose-built to drop baits over water, without compromising flight performance or imaging quality. Other drones just aren’t built to operate on or over water. Sea spray and moisture corrodes their circuits and ruin their cameras, but the SplashDrone 3+ is built with enhanced protection and waterproofing.
One Drop for Multiple Baits
With its superior 1kg payload capacity, SplashDrone 3+ allows you the flexibility to carry more than 10 baited hooks or lures on each cast or long-cast a heavy live bait.
The high propulsion system and efficient design will maintain stability when the drone is burdened with baits and long line. The new high-voltage battery extends flight time, allowing 3-6 bait casts from a single battery charge (distance dependent).

Power and maneuverability to fly in winds up to Beaufort Force 4 (18mph/28 kmh) with gusts to Force 6 (31mph/49 kmh).
See Where the Fish Are, Right from the Shore
The onboard high-quality camera helps you easily find fish and decide where the bait needs to be. The waterproof cameras of the Payload Release Modules have a wide field of view and low-light sensitivity. The bright LCD screen built-in to the remote controller provides a live video feed from the camera of the SplashDrone 3+. Fly above the strike zone to view the movement of schools of fish or land on the water to take a closer look underwater at fish and terrain.
Water, Wind … Whatever
Every part of SplashDrone 3+ is 100% waterproof and seawater ready. Not only is the airframe water-sealed and pressure tested, the internal electronics are also coated for further corrosion-resistance. The robust 450mm ABS shell and full carbon fiber propellers provide the durability to fly in these harsh environments. The new propulsion combo and flight controller provide tremendous horsepower and control even in winds up to 18 mph (30km/h) (Beaufort Force 4) with gusts to Force 6.
Drone Fishing Made Easy
Quick Set Up
The release mechanism, propellers and landing gears all connect to the drone quickly and easily to minimize setup. Attaching your fishing line just takes a second.
Dual GPS and other sensors enable SplashDrone 3+ to automatically hover at its current position and altitude.
Drop & Return - Automatically
Once you’ve dropped your baits, just flick the Return-Home switch and the SplashDrone 3+ will automatically return and land gently at the take-off point - while you concentrate on fishing.
Please note this is not a toy and we cannot sell to under 16's.
All in One Remote Controller
The SplashDrone 3+ comes with a custom designed, fully integrated remote controller. Redesigned controls maximize ease-of-use and efficiency, while a fully integrated, high-brightness 5" FPV screen clearly displays live video and overlaid (OSD) flight data without the need for any additional equipment. Flight control, payload release and camera controls are all at your fingertips.
Switch the remote controller into the Cruise mode and you will be able to pan (yaw) and fly the SplashDrone 3+ simultaneously with a single joystick.
Go from joystick to fine knob control of drone rotation, direction or orbit - great for smooth videos and accurate flight.
All SwellPro Payload Release modules are fast to attach, waterproof and are precision made from CNC aluminum and stainless steel. Below are the main fishing payload releases for our waterproof drone. You can also purchase the TrollSafe as an extra for trolling baits and lures.
The integrated, waterproof, tilt-gimballed 4K camera provides live as well as recorded video footage and allows the camera angle to be adjusted during flight. With the PL3, you can accurately locate your target drop zone and record the whole casting process in high definition.
PL2 is a remote payload release with an integrated, fixed-angle HD FPV camera. Set the angle of the camera before flight to suit your needs. This camera is only for live vision and cannot record video.
More details below:
LONG RANGE RELEASE MECHANISM
PL2 release mechanism is capable of carrying items including long fishing lines and casting baits to any target location, in the surf or in unreachable waters. (The max flight range of Splash Drone 3+ is up to 1.6 km+.)
HIGH PAYLOAD CAPACITY
PL2 is manufactured from high precision CNC aluminium and stainless steel. The max payload capacity is 1kg. It is capable of carrying more than 10 hooks and baits in one delivery. It can also be used to carry a life preserver or life jacket for surf rescue.
PRECISE REMOTE RELEASE
Instead of releasing baits unintentionally like the third-party-made bait dropper, PL2 enables precise surfcasting with a switch on the remote controller of Splash Drone over a long range.
FISH FINDER CAMERA
The payload release is integrated with a waterproof HD camera, thereby eliminating the requirement of a second camera. The camera can be tilted within a 90° range. Real time video from the camera can be viewed using an FPV monitor up to distances in excess of one kilometre. The camera is also able to capture a clear view below the water surface, thereby helping you to easily find the optimum fishing spot.
The whole mechanism is as waterproof and salt water resistant as the Splash drone 3+. The quick attach design allows it to be mounted onto the drone in a few seconds.

The PL3 is a new, innovative and powerful add-on which increases the versatility of the SplashDrone 3+. Technically, the PL3 is a combination of the waterproof full HD camera and the original payload release mechanism.
Now with the PL3, and compared to the previous model (PL2) , you now have the added benefit of a gimbal mounted camera, as well as being able to record your payload release or rescue operation to a MicroSD card, which was not possible before. The camera is stabilized by 4 rubber damping balls, ensuring the recording of steady footage while carrying and dropping a payload. It is very simple to use, you can tilt the camera from the remote controller to view what's in front of the drone, and also where your items are to be dropped. This can be very convenient, especially during rescue or life saving operations with live video back to the FPV screen which is in the palm of your hands.
Thanks to the PL3, the SplashDrone 3+ is now able to offer you a more precise release of fishing traces or bait, or lifesaving equipment over a wide radius from your position, and is fully under your control. The efficiency is increased beyond your imagination.
Tough & Waterproof
The SplashDrone 3+ fuselage is made from durable 3mm reinforced ABS to ensure a perfect waterproof seal.
Each drone undergoes at least two pressure tests during production for 100% waterproofness. All parts, both inside and out, are corrosion resistant and designed for use in marine environments.
New access hatch lid with air pressure equalization allows altimeter accuracy without permitting water entry.
Powerful Propulsion System
The new S3 flight controller, integrated with new sensors and a powerful propulsion system, allows for greater sensitivity and accuracy than ever. This means you can fly SplashDrone 3+ safely and smoothly with more confidence on water, in rain and snow.
The S3 constantly checks for errors and offers redundancy to improve flight stability. The dual-mode GPS locks onto up to 24 satellites from the GPS and GLONASS systems for improved accuracy and speed of positioning.
