Here is another one from the guys on Thunder out of Texas.

Love the drone videos. I think this is just the beginning. We will be seeing a whole new era in billfishing films due to those flying machines. I saw one of an 800 lb. Black filmed on the GBR from a helicopter while somebody was inbound to a Mothership. I'll have to dig up a copy. It is nice because the guy was using a Pro-sumer quality camera.

One criticism of that Steroid Monster on 'Thunder'. Draping your arms down and just leaving the rod free in the harness, without a hand on top, is a sure fire prescription for a big headache, if the line were to break. Definitely, a no-no and a trip to the dentist or the brain surgeon.

Yup the drones are awesome...I have tried to get a few pilots from up here in Bham to freelance their skills out to cobia fishing... a tower does not come close to a drones capabilities but sadly no interest. I am quite sure a pilot could market themselves for a darn good days pay. I am too interested in fishing to pilot one for anyone otherwise I would jump in the deep end of the pool for even with my RC Heli skillset it is still a steep learning curve for building, programing, piloting, maintenance, and repair of the drone. Not to mention cost factor, for I would want a hex if not an octo for offshore purposes.
