    Pulled by request of Washington fish & game. It's illegal to fish with a drone. See you all in five years :)

    Funny!! You're a MUCH BIGGER risk taker than I am! What part of God's country are you in?

    Sure would suck to get a snag out in middle battery would die before you got a craft to save her on auto land ;(

    I run R/C boats 30 inch 55 mph and thought about using my phantom as a rescue craft with a hook . Then though my luck I would hook the boat and and get snagged up and then I would have a bigger problem :(:eek:

    As long as the fish doesn't weigh too much-- if it is too heavy the fish may wind up catching a drone:D:D

    True. Always risks involved. My line was three times the depth of the lake and with the line at 6lbs the monster fish wouldn't be able to drag me under and at full throttle I believe I could break the line if snagged.

    I've always thought about attaching a gopro to fishing line and getting some under water views of coral reefs

    I appreciate threads like this.

    The only alternative use that I have done with my P3 so far is blowing the leaves out of the valleys of my roof.

    My wife doesn't like me getting on the roof, so this made her like my Phantom better.

    Just be careful where you do this and where you post it as I believe it is illegal in some locations.

    Hardest I have laughed all day. Seeing that fish dangling on 100 feet of line like a pendulum... Genius! Now you need some sort of servo actuated release mechanism. What did you tie the line to?
