Gannet Pro

Drone Fishing Made Easy

Design Shape and Appearance

Gannet Pro | Waterproof Drone | Southern Sun Drones

Gannet Pro Drone The Gannet Pro drones have been designed as short-distance delivery drones, and are streamlined to fly forward significantly faster and with less power usage than most camera platform drones.

The two contrasting colours increase visibility when viewed from the side. They stand out in any weather conditions at a very long distances, making the visual line of sight flight to long distances more enjoyable. The shape makes it easy to see which way the drone is facing.

Compact Yet Powerful

Designed to carry a load of upto 2Kg, be it a life vest on a SAR (search and rescue) mission, a bait for fishing or an external battery for extended flight times.

Unique Barometric Pressure Control.

Gannet Pro Drone uses a unique internal sealed bladder to allow pressure variations as it heats and cools, or rises and descends.

The electronics stay dry at all times and with perfectly balanced barometric pressure this ensures stable flight without uncontrollable altitude gain as is the case with all other “waterproof” drones.

Flight Control

Gannet Pro | Waterproof Drone | Southern Sun Drones

Gannet Pro Drone has a  DJI Naza mV2 Flight Control System installed providing the best possible GPS and flight control, ensuring trouble-free operation.

Remote Controller

Gannet Pro | Waterproof Drone | Southern Sun Drones

The remote control is splashproof, rainproof and sand-proof making it ideal for use on the beach or boat in any weather, even snow is no problem at all. The control sticks and switches are sealed off with rubber bellows making sure that sand and dirt can’t jam them up, as is so often experienced with standard controllers. With a built-in LCD display providing the operator with everything they need such as the drone’s vital telemetry, distance, height, drone battery and GPS satellites. The Gannet can be flown without connecting a smartphone or tablet, but connecting a smart device through the Gannet app to the drone provides a high definition display for video feedback and realtime map location. This also then stores the flight logs and history in the App.

Gannet Pro Drone HD video

The optional internal 2 axis gimbaled camera provides live HD video to the connected Gannet App on a smartphone or tablet with both map and video display.

The camera is not intended for professional videographers or photographers but to provide clear live view to aid in SAR missions or for spotting fish when fishing. Additional 4Kcameras can easily be fitted to several of the auxiliary mounting points.

Battery compartment

The battery compartment is an easily accessible compartment at the back of the drone, sealed off from all internals. In the event that some sand compromises the seal only that compartment would seep with water and only the battery is exposed and not the expensive electronic internals.

The Gannet's double waterproof compartment design is unique to the Gannet Drone which makes them the safest waterproof drones on the market.

Fail-safe release

Gannet Pro drone is fitted with the Gannet XSport dual electro-mechanical release. The user can set the release to auto-release on a given setting. If something snags the line in flight it simply unclips saving the drone. If a precession drop is required simply press the button on the remote and the electrical side releases the load on command.

This release an also be used when flying out a lifeline/ lifevest to a person in distress. The drone can lower the strap to them and when they tug on the line it will unclip. Or one can even pull them to shore with the drone itself knowing that the drone is safe and will free itself if the load gets too much.
