1.DO NOT disable VPS or Landing Protection, critical systems that protect your drone, camera & gimbal as well as

personal and public safety. Other designs that require VPS to be disabled are compromised and should be avoided.

For more on VPS and flying over water please see

2.Some designs require yanking the line free, the drone IMU does not handle repeated sudden movements well, nor is it good for the drone legs that house the radio antennas and compasses.

3.Some designs force off-center loading, to any side, especially the back in order to clear the VPS sensors, this

reduces the load-carrying ability by up to 40% if central back and up to 60% if off-center to back, this

dramatically increases drone instability, as individual motors over speed while countering the imbalance resulting

in loss of control. These designs that require off center loading are compromised and should be avoided as having

one or two motors overwork and failover water is fatal. These designs make several claims to try to justify

loading off center, these claims are false and designed merely to justify a poor concept.

4.There are designs that lift “near” the center but when they do they interfere with the VPS, these designs have

options to clear the sensors but in those positions, they then lift the load totally wrong.

5.Several designs weigh over 100g, any unnecessary weight added to the release is unnecessary power-sapping on the

drone, also reducing the max bait load by the equivalent. Every 50g saps approximately 5% more power from the

battery 100% of the time the drone is airborne. So in 4 bait drops the drone has lost near 1:30min flight time

just because of the heavy release. This can be the difference of making it back to shore or having the drone go

for a swim.

6.When using a downrigger clip: The addition of the downrigger clip requires VPS to be disabled – Gannet takes no

responsibility for any losses that may be sustained as a result of disabling VPS. Gannet also does not recommend

using this method (downrigger clip) for everyday use, yanking the line free, puts unnecessary stress and shock on

the drone legs, which houses the radio antennas and compasses and may also negatively affect the drone’s very

sensitive IMU.
