Why use SKY RIGGER?
SKY RIGGER takes fishing to another level, it allows anyone to safely fly a bait or lure out and silently target fish from above. Whether you’re an experienced fisherman or have never fished before, SKY RIGGER gives you the ability to expand your view and experience fishing like they’ve never imagined. SKY RIGGER’s ability to capture, relive and share unseen fishing action is truly revolutionary. It’s fishing made easy and accessible for everyone.
What are the advantages of using SKY RIGGER?
Explore further: Remotely scope out new drone fishing spots and structures that would normally be unreachable.
Keep your drone dry: Using innovative pressure release technology, SKY RIGGER drone fishing rig will release your bait or lure automatically when a fish strikes or manually by applying pressure.
Access offshore: Fish offshore without leaving land. Your range is only limited by the length of line on your reel.
No boat? No worries: With SKY RIGGER, targeting offshore species is accessible to everyone. For the first time, people who either don’t own or are unable board a boat have the opportunity to catch offshore game fish like tuna, mackerel and marlin right from the beach or rocks.
Stealth mode: Compared to a boat engine, a drone is essentially silent. Get closer to big fish and drop your bait or lure with stealthy precision.
Try new techniques: Experiment with dropping or dangling live/dead baits in the water or trolling lures, drone fishing allows your leader to be above the water line making lures look irresistible.
From a boat: Drone fishing from a boat has equally as many benefits as fishing from the beach. It enables you to look for fish aggravations, bird activity, bait and structures from an advantage above. With SKY RIGGER you’re able to cast a bait or lure silently from a distance where you will not spook the fish with your boat engine.
Share your vision: Share new experiences and perspectives with friends and family. SKY RIGGER drone fishing attachment has been designed to maximise your strike rate, allowing you to capture, relive and share unique fishing action like never before.
Simple set up: Get fishing in no time - SKY RIGGER’s quick and easy set up takes less than one minute.
Built to last: Made from the finest corrosion resistant materials and with no batteries required, SKY RIGGER offers the ultimate drone fishing reliability.
Safe zones: Drone fishing allows you to reach the desired location safely. Lower your risk of danger while fishing from the rocks. Keep a safe distance away from hard to access and risky fishing spots.
Sustainable: SKY RIGGER’s targeted cast helps reduce the amount of lost fishing line and tackle around our coastal rocks and reefs. This has a positive impact on our environment, which is one of our core values.

What materials is SKY RIGGER made with?
- Zytel® nylon resin: A high-grade UV treated injection-molded resin that features incredible mechanical strength, the perfect balance of stiffness and toughness, and excellent high temperature performance.
- Elastollan® S85AN: A thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) that has been specifically formulated for injection molding, it features good hydrolytic stability, excellent abrasion resistance, and is resistant to heat, oil, fuel, and solvents.
- C464 naval brass: This marine-grade brass is used in both saltwater and freshwater environments because of its extremely high resistance to corrosion and dezincification.
- 316 stainless steel: SS 316 is a stainless steel that features higher nickel and molybdenum content, giving it better overall corrosion resistance properties when compared to other stainless steels.
How do I set up my SKY RIGGER?
The drone mount accessory comes out of the case and assembled the correct size to fit on your drone. If required, adjust the width of the drone mount by loosening the grub screws, adjusting to suit and re-tightening firmly. Use the fish tool to loosen the leg clamps and then loosely attach one of the leg clamps to the drone. Diagonally rotate to slip the other leg clamp on then use the fish tool provided to tighten the clamps, finger tight only in a straight position!
Ensure your drone mount is attached correctly so the release mechanism swings away from the camera allowing the drone to sit flat on its feet and the arch is facing towards the belly of the drone.
Refer to your product manual for detailed instructions on how to set up your SKY RIGGER. Or watch this video.
How do I release my line?
SKY RIGGER’s intelligent design features enable the line to release automatically when a fish strikes or you can release the line manually by applying pressure with a yank of the rod or the pull of a hand, giving you ultimate control whichever fishing technique you use.
Will SKY RIGGER weigh down or damage my drone?
SKY RIGGER’s intelligent design features enable the line to release automatically when a fish strikes. This functionality has been meticulously tested to minimise the risk of your drone being pulled into the water. Always test the release pressure before launching your drone to ensure it releases with ease. We have never lost or drowned a drone while using SKY RIGGER.
You can also release the line manually with a yank of the rod or the pull of a hand, giving you ultimate control, whichever fishing technique you use.
What fishing line will work with SKY RIGGER?
SKY RIGGER can be used with any fishing line available today. We recommend braid, mono-filament or fluorocarbon.
Does SKY RIGGER corrode in salt water?
SKY RIGGER is built from marine grade corrosion resistant materials. UV treated Glass Filled Nylon, 316 Stainless Steel and Brass C464. We have completed a CORROSION ANALYSIS on SKY RIGGER and its 100% rust proof.

Can I catch and claim records using SKY RIGGER?
SKY RIGGER is the only product on the market that is IGFA approved, allowing you to chase world records from above thanks to its unique design features.
The current IGFA international angling rules say that, “Outriggers, downriggers, spreader bars and kites are permitted to be used provided that the actual fishing line is attached to the snap or other release device, either directly or with some other material. The leader or double line may not be connected to the release mechanism either directly or with the use of a connecting device.” the same intent of the rule applies for drone fishing.
This means that as long as the mainline is “attached to a release clip that allows it to separate away from the apparatus once the fish strikes,” then the catch is IGFA legal!
Will the SKY RIGGER fit in my drone case?
Yes. SKY RIGGER comes in a protective EVA, padded foam case. 19.5cm in length and 8.5cm in width. The case is 3.7cm in depth. Small enough to pack in your drone case backpack or tackle box.
What are SKY RIGGER’s dimensions?
Detached, SKY RIGGER’s is 17 cm in length and 4 cm in width. Assembled SKY RIGGER is 8 cm in width. The length doesn’t change once assembled.
Is the SKY RIGGER waterproof?
YES. However, care for your SKY RIGGER just as you would your prized fishing tackle and other drone accessories. Wash your SKY RIGGER after each use with warm fresh and soapy water, and then either leave it on your drone, or you can remove it and return it to it’s case.

Does SKY RIGGER fit the MAVIC PRO?
Drone fishing is not safe with the MAVIC PRO, we recommend using the Phantom range for drone fishing due to it’s heavier payload ability.
What is the SKY RIGGER’s weight?
The SKY RIGGER is a mere 150 grams (case included).
What weight can it carry?
SKY RIGGER is designed to mount as close as possible to the drones centre of gravity so that the direct weight is dispersed evenly between both legs without affecting the drones manoeuvrability or stability and allowing you to lift heavier baits safely.
That said the Phantom 3 is slightly more forgiving than the Phantom 4 and can carry heavier baits despite the P4 and P4P having stronger motors. Max loading is roughly 800g, any more and your drone won’t like it. Sea Ulcer recommends baits of 600g to minimize stress on the drone and yourself. Obviously lighter baits are better. Remember it takes energy to lift any mass so your drone will not fly 28min on a battery charge whilst carrying additional weight.
Also consider the weight of fishing line, pressure from the reel drag, wind speed and direction.
Always keep an eye on your altitude when drone fishing especially when trolling lures.
Is SKY RIGGER difficult to install?
SKY RIGGER’s quick and easy set up takes less than 1 minute. We provided a custom built fish hex tool to adjust and install SKY RIGGER quickly on the go.
How far out can I take my bait or lure out?
We tested the P4P and successfully dropped baits 1 km out to sea. (in perfect conditions) SKY RIGGER has been designed to minimise interference with the drone’s light-bridge communications system so you have a clear HD vision to spot fish.
Additionally keep in mind that the line itself also has resistance through the air and water so the further you fly bait out the lighter the load should be. Make sure to increase the drones altitude as you fly out to stop the belly of line entering the water.
Is the use of SKY RIGGER legal?
Yes in most countries. Aviation and fishing laws are rapidly evolving and Sea Ulcer encourages everyone to check their local rules and regulations before drone fishing.
There are useful apps available to help you abide by aviation rules. In Australia, ‘Drone Complier’ is a great app to quickly check the airspace before fishing. Severe fines are applied for breaching aviation regulations with your drones, so be sure your not flying where you shouldn’t be. We always encourage safe and responsible drone use.
- Do not fly over the top of people, with in 30 meters of people, cars, boats or buildings.
- Always remain vigilant and keep a good eye out for Helicopters, low flying planes, boats, Jet Ski’s, surfers divers etc.
- If another aircraft or vessel is heading your way, release the line, lower your altitude and return to home ASAP.
- Do not participate in drone fishing in winds above 15 knots, It will be harder to control your drone in excessive wind with a bait attached.
- Monitor the condition of your drone. If the rotors feel hot, or is showing other signs of fatigue, give it a rest.
SKY RIGGER is designed for fishing use only and should not be used for any other purpose.
Sea Ulcer is an advocate of sustainable fishing practices – only take what you can eat. Obey all local fishing regulations size and bag limits. Abide by all local aviation laws and regulations when flying your drone.
Does SKY RIGGER interfere with my drone sensors?
SKY RIGGER is fully customizable and Adjustable meaning it can be mounted in various configurations to avoid interfering with sensors, vision positioning systems, OcuSync HD transmission systems and any others DJI will throw our way.
Sea Ulcer chooses to fly and drone fish with all sensors turned off.
