Camzilla is pleased to introduce the Gannet Elite - designed exclusively for the DJI Mavic 3
The Gannet Elite consists of an electronic release (triggered by cycling your Mavic 3's landing lights) and a mechanical release (whereby you set the tension before flight according to the weight of the bait you're using). This all-in-one release quickly mounts to the bottom of your Mavic 3, and doesn't obscure any obstacle-avoidance sensors. One side of the landing light is left uncovered, so you can still use the light during landing.
Scientifically proven to be the worlds best pressure release system
The worlds first and only electro-mechanical drone release system (patent pending). Also known as our ultimate release system!
Designed not to interfere with your drones VPS sensors. All remain ON, unobstructed and active, no need to move it to the back legs to clear the sensors.
Selectable electronic or mechanical release - for the guys that fly amongst the gulls, adding protection against reel jams with emergency bail.
Is fully autonomous and self-sufficient with its own rechargeable battery, charged from an internal charger powered by USB charge lead in under 30min. A single charge can do over 100 drops, Over 2-week stand by if left on (warning this could damage the battery)
No need to modify your drone in any manner nor do you need to open it,
Central loading the same as all other Gannets - balancing the load on all 4 motors, this is fundamental to all drones. See WARNING section below for more details.
WARNINGS & CONCERNS REGARDING OTHER DESIGNS
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 https://youtu.be/FihnvkaN83M
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.
Some designs force off-centre 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-centre 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 centre 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 centre, these claims are false and designed merely to justify a poor concept.
There are designs that lift “near” the centre 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.
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.
