For the land-based fisherman in New Zealand, it can take out a kontiki line for as far as the eye can see.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMany drones are used for fishing and one of the biggest drone sinkers is when the line gets snagged or when a seagull or pelican hits the line whilst the drone is on its way out with the line. Solving this problem was easy, this was done by fitting each Gannet Done with the patented Gannet XSport dual electromechanical release. What this does is give the user the ability to set the release to auto-release on a given setting. So if 1kg is flown the user may set the release to 1,5kg so as soon as a bird hits the line it simply unclips saving the drone, and if a precession drop is required simply press the button on the remote and the electrical side releases the load on command.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis release is not exclusively for fishing as it can also be used when flying out a lifeline\/ lifevest to a person in distress. The drone can lower the strap to him and when he tugs 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.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eGannet has been making drone release systems since 2016 for all major drone makes so it only makes sense that the best possible release would be fitted to the Gannet II. The Gannet XSport has several granted and also pending multinational patents making them the worlds only failsafe electro-mechanical release systems.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e \u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eDESIGN SHAPE AND APPEARANCE:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe Gannet II drones have been designed as short-distance delivery drones, unlike most other drones that are symmetrical camera platforms, with a camera hanging from the bottom and able to fly at near identical speeds in any direction, the Gannets are streamlined to fly forward significantly faster and with less power usage than most camera platform drones.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAs a result, Gannet Drones are unmistakably recognisable and very unique in shape. This came about as a result of placing the gimbal and GPS far upfront in the head with sweeping aerodynamic arms. Resembling a skydiver or perhaps even a flying penguin. When hovering in place the elongated body is slanting backwards so that when the body is horizontal the drone is already travelling forward at speed. This results in the smallest possible frontal area cutting through the air conserving battery power as much as possible. The keen eye will notice that nothing is straight on these drones, not one of the motors line up, the slanting body and curved asymmetric arms all contribute to making these some of the\u003cbr\u003emost power-efficient drones to be brought to market.  \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eBATTERY COMPARTMENT:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe one thing that needs to be changed\/charged in the field on a regular basis is the Lithium Polymer battery. For this, we placed the battery in its own waterproof compartment opening at the back of the drone.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eTo ensure ease of installation we created an easily accessible compartment in 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.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe Gannet's double waterproof compartment design is unique to the Gannet Drone which makes them the safest waterproof drones on the market.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eFLIGHT CONTROL:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWhen looking for a reliable tried and tested flight control system we settled on one from the market leader in drone tech, Pixhawk.

The Gannet G2 Series Fishing Drones are the latest drones to release from Gannet. The Gannet G2 + is a fully waterproof drone assembled in New Zealand. The G2 + features a 25 minute flight time, a powerful 2kg payload with the XSport release, a single axis camera for looking up and down and the ability to fly in high winds. The G2 + has had a complete upgrade, the body is made out of polycarbonate(the stuff bullet proof windows are made of), an external barometer removes the need for a breathing membrane, all new motors are OEM made for Gannet by T-Motor, there are high performance ESC's and new prop snap on mounts. The all new controller has a built in screen meaning you do not need to use your phone.

 

FEATURES OF THE GANNET II:

✅ Fully waterproof drones that can fly even in heavy rain

✅ Powerful with payloads up to 2kg (Max lift test (NOT recommended) 5kgs)

✅ High-efficiency rate with aerodynamics designed to be able to fly in high winds for longer

✅ Reliable with a trusted Pixhawk flight controller

Weather resistant and sand proof remote so that it can be used on the beach without worrying that sand will jam the remote sticks

✅ LCD display for drone telemetry, battery, and GPS status, use with or without a smartphone, SD live video from the gimbaled camera so that it can be used as an effective search and rescue drone with clear live SD video

✅ Multiple auxiliary attachment points for the addition of 4k action/360 cameras and spotlights

✅ Fully sealed electronics, preventing corrosion of electronics.

✅ Failsafe electro-mechanical payload release that can be mechanically or electrically activated

✅ Bright onboard lights for easy night navigation

✅ Semi-opaque shell to detect any leaks early on

✅ Safety features. Release bait and return to home on low battery

We took on the challenge to create something which met all of the above goals to create a truly unique and market-leading product.

The Gannet team can say it has achieved its goals in the new Gannet II 

At the outset, we designed these drones to be load carrying, be it a life vest on a SAR (search and rescue) mission, bait for fishing or an external battery for extended flight times.

The LARGER Gannet II is rated to lift and fly with loads up to 3.5kg (7.7lbs) payload.

These bigger loads draw heavy on the drone’s battery and limit flight time to a great extent but even so the Gannet II can fly a lifesaving tow line out to a person in trouble several hundred meters from shore. For the land-based fisherman in New Zealand, it can take out a kontiki line for as far as the eye can see.

Many drones are used for fishing and one of the biggest drone sinkers is when the line gets snagged or when a seagull or pelican hits the line whilst the drone is on its way out with the line. Solving this problem was easy, this was done by fitting each Gannet Done with the patented Gannet XSport dual electromechanical release. What this does is give the user the ability to set the release to auto-release on a given setting. So if 1kg is flown the user may set the release to 1,5kg so as soon as a bird hits the line it simply unclips saving the drone, and if a precession drop is required simply press the button on the remote and the electrical side releases the load on command.

This release is not exclusively for fishing as it can also be used when flying out a lifeline/ lifevest to a person in distress. The drone can lower the strap to him and when he tugs 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.

Gannet has been making drone release systems since 2016 for all major drone makes so it only makes sense that the best possible release would be fitted to the Gannet II. The Gannet XSport has several granted and also pending multinational patents making them the worlds only failsafe electro-mechanical release systems.

 

DESIGN SHAPE AND APPEARANCE:

The Gannet II drones have been designed as short-distance delivery drones, unlike most other drones that are symmetrical camera platforms, with a camera hanging from the bottom and able to fly at near identical speeds in any direction, the Gannets are streamlined to fly forward significantly faster and with less power usage than most camera platform drones.

As a result, Gannet Drones are unmistakably recognisable and very unique in shape. This came about as a result of placing the gimbal and GPS far upfront in the head with sweeping aerodynamic arms. Resembling a skydiver or perhaps even a flying penguin. When hovering in place the elongated body is slanting backwards so that when the body is horizontal the drone is already travelling forward at speed. This results in the smallest possible frontal area cutting through the air conserving battery power as much as possible. The keen eye will notice that nothing is straight on these drones, not one of the motors line up, the slanting body and curved asymmetric arms all contribute to making these some of the
most power-efficient drones to be brought to market.  

BATTERY COMPARTMENT:

The one thing that needs to be changed/charged in the field on a regular basis is the Lithium Polymer battery. For this, we placed the battery in its own waterproof compartment opening at the back of the drone.

To ensure ease of installation we created an easily accessible compartment in 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.

FLIGHT CONTROL:

When looking for a reliable tried and tested flight control system we settled on one from the market leader in drone tech, Pixhawk. As the market leader, we are confident that each Gannet drone has the best possible GPS and flight control system ensuring trouble-free operation.

BATTERY CHARGING

With the main market for Gannet drones being people that will be away from their home base, all Gannets come with a battery charger that can recharge the battery in about 1hour from a 12V DC battery or 110V-240V AC power outlet making field charging easy and convenient.
