THE AEROKONTIKI FISHING DRONE
Aerokontiki BEAST UAV with customised carbon fibre Canopy
Battery Fast Charger, 10Ah 222Wh Lipo Battery, & fire retardant battery pouch
Telemetry radio transmitter flight controller & soft radio case
A huge improvement over its predecessors, the new AeroKontiki BEAST is a stunning, powerful, and high-performance fishing drone featuring highly efficient propulsion systems to give an extended range or haul, enabling delivery of more hooks with heavier sinkers than ever before. Using advanced technologies, it has been programmed to hold a 10-m low-altitude shelf, and a 60-m high-altitude shelf to keep it safely within authorized airspace over water. It also has a battery management system to ensure it has enough battery power so that it can return safely back to land. In addition to this, it has automatic return to home, and can land within 1 meter of its take-off spot, so you don’t have to manually land the AeroKontiki. These are just some of the features that make the AeroKontiki an easy-to-fly, safe, and intelligent UAV.
A high powered fishing machine, the BEAST AeroKontiki fishing drone is made of carbon-fiber and alloy, encasing all control systems within its frame. Protected by an elegant carbon-fibre canopy customised to your style using automotive air-brushed paint, it is water-resistant to rain. It has a robust structure with a Y6 frame, 6 very powerful brushless motors, and stabilisation software that gives it the strength and stability to fly in high winds over rough seas, sand bars, and reefs to your desired fishing spot. There is no doubt that AeroKontiki is an innovative, smarter way to fish.

WHERE CAN YOU USE THE AEROKONTIKI FISHING DRONE?
The operator needs to check with the Aviation laws of the country in which they intend to use the AeroKontiki. In New Zealand, information can be obtained from AIRSHARE at http://www.airshare.co.nz. This is a site specifically for UAV users, and has maps showing the controlled air space around airports.
AS A GENERAL GUIDE, YOU CAN FLY YOUR AEROKONTIKI:
In uncontrolled airspace below 400 feet above ground level.
During daylight hours.
Within visual line of sight.
Clear of all manned aircraft, persons, & property.
Outside of airspace restricted areas.
Not within 4 km of any aerodrome.
From a beach straight out to sea.
If you want to fly outside a 4 km radius of the Aerodrome, but within controlled airspace, first register on http://www.airshare.co.nz to obtain permission.
Select dynamic maps on www.airshare.co.nz/maps to view coastal areas which interest you.
Taranis RC Controller
Controller – The Taranis X7 Radio uses ACCST technology that takes advantage of the entire 2.4 GHz band resulting in excellent range and reliability. The large back lit display shows the drone’s position & speed. It has an ergonomic case with ultra-smooth ball bearing gimbals & a new larger battery pack. One of the best features of the Taranis Radio is its full telemetry capability, as well as RSSI signal strength feedback.
Operating voltage range: 6-15 V (uses 2000 mAh 7.2 V rechargeable battery)
Operating current: 260 mA maximum (with both RF module and backlit on)
Operating temperature: -10 to 60℃
Backlit LCD screen: 128×64, 2 color combinations for selection
