Scientifically proven to be the worlds best pressure release system

Main features:

A full automatic mechanical release series mainly used for fishing. As a full mechanical it does not require a battery or any electronics.

The lightest purpose-designed release in the world at only 13g, 7x lighter than its closest rival.

Designed not to interfere with your drones (Visual Positioning Sensors) VPS sensors in default optimal installation position. VPS remains ON, unobstructed and active so you are not risking your camera or drone by disabling it. See WARNINGS below for more,
Mounts in seconds to your drone with no tools required,

Clear from the drone camera

Over 4kg release ability (used on the Inspire 2 & custom drones

Because of it’s high accuracy, (±5% @ 800g setting) the release setting can be made higher than any other release, closer to the drone limit, resulting in more hookups and less missed fish throwing the bait/lure as the hook was not set on the initial strike, this when trawling lures or bait direct to fish. Same goes for reducing stress on the drone when dropping normal baits no need to set it too high, saving your drone in the long run.

No need to modify your drone in any manner it simply clips or straps on,
Central loading the same as all other Gannets – balancing the load on all 4 motors, this is fundamental to all drones. You will never see a helicopter slinging a load off-center why do it to a drone?

Central loading also distributes the load evenly to all 4 drone legs minimizing the stress on them as far as possible. See WARNINGS below for more details,
Lowest possible release point on the drone without adding leg extensions – See WARNINGS below for more details,

The entire release is installed below the radio antennas, which is in the drone legs, so it cannot interfere with signal or navigation at all, this becoming critical when at long range or in high interference areas.

Is activated whenever the pull force on the release line, the Drop-Loop, exceeds the user setting, so if set to release at 100 grams you can comfortably fly 90 gram loads all day long, so if you manually stop the spool whilst still flying forward the drone easily exceeds the additional needed 10g releasing the load.

Easy one hand loading while the drone is hovering

Designed for 0,3mm to 1,4mm Drop-Loops of either nylon or even metal,

Instant release should the reel or line snag to above the settings threshold, same as it would if a bird was to hit the line,

Smallest, most compact Gannet to date and the smallest release in the market by a very large margin. Weighing in at only 13g. Weight saved on the release is safety gained for the flight reducing drone power consumption, when compared to competitive mechanical releases the power saving can be as great as 3min on every battery,

High-quality injection-molded body design and appearance matching that of DJI themselves.
So small it fits in any drone case with the drone. With no loose parts or tools so nothing can get lost or misplaced.

Why the Gannet Sport and not the original electric Gannets
The sport is aimed exclusively at fishing as you need a line attached to it to operate where the original Gannets can drop anything at any distance and some can even drop 2 separate payloads on different locations.

The Original Gannets are also very well suited for fishing and used by 1000’s of people for just that, they also have the ability to push the absolute limits of what the drone can carry putting the pilot in full control where the Sport will let max loads (absolute max) drop at the slightest upset saving the drone. Here is looking at the Phantoms we are now talking of loads over 1kg that is done exclusively by very well experienced pilots in control of the drone. the sport can also be set higher than the drone max but in this even it becomes very risky and is not recommend.

What load can they carry?
The Sport can be set very close to drone max but it is advisable to rather have a safety margin of a few 100g to ensure there is sufficient room for safety. On the Phantoms, we have done baits of 1kg with ease but this is pushing limits of the drone and not recommend for everyday use.

Why can the Sport carry more than other mechanical release systems?
it is the lightest by very far at only 13g

Dead central loading spreading the load to all 4 props

Extreme high accuracy and repeatability always releasing when it must where others have breakaway friction to overcome the Sport only has a linear spring to act against.

The Sport can only be loaded one way and the line can only be released in one way where other clamping systems can have the line clamped differently on every load and the line can be pulled out different every time, they are also subject to friction which changes when dry/wet/salty, thereby those systems have poor repeatability and are unreliable on higher load settings.

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. Without it the drone cannot perform precision landings. For more on VPS and flying over water please see https://youtu.be/FihnvkaN83M

Some designs require yanking the line free due to the inability to set an accurate repeatable release force, the clamping yaws wherein the line is held simply can’t perform the same constantly under all conditions, sometimes the line start sliding to one end, sometimes it is pulled free from one side only and other times both ends of the line pull at once, sometimes the line or clamp can be wet and sometimes dry with salt, all this makes for very unpredictable performance especially under high loads, This forces the user to “over tighten” the release unnecessary for the loads that he uses, resulting in the need to yank on the drone giving impact loading to overcome the breakaway friction needed. 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 so best avoid designs of this nature, This if the intention is to at least at times fly heavier loads requiring heavier settings.

Some designs claim that they cannot be over tightened, this is a fallacy as different line diameters and line conditions like being dry & salted will inevitably increase the release force requirement.

Some designs force off-center loading, to any side, especially the back in order to clear the downwards 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 overspeed 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.
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.

Some designs have pivot points higher than the drone legs in order that the bulky release head can swing away when landing, this pivot point then effectively becomes the line anchor point on the drone which is then closer (higher) to the props than any Gannet, endangering the drone unnecessarily.

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. @ 100g heavier that goes up to 3min on every battery, So in 4 bait drops the drone has lost near 3min 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.

    • Cassim Mathir

      Placed a online order for a DJI Mavic 2 pro and I'm based in Jhb. When the drone arrived I had problems with the remote controller not charging. When I called the customer care line Natasha took the call and assured me I don't have to worry at all, if there is a problem the unit it will be taken care of. Brian who assisted me with my purchase arrange to have the drone uplifted at no extra charge to myself. A brand new unit was then sent out to me. Besides having the best deals and lowest prices would definitely recommend Droneworld for the best after sales service. A big thank you to Brian, Natasha and Ashley for going the extra mile to assist a me......... and all of this was during lockdown when everyone was not in the office and working from home.

    • Sean Nel

      I went directly to Droneworld because of bad TakeAlot Experiences, and was mildly surprised that as a standard, they have next day delivery if you are early enough and the pricing was better! I was doing an online purchase which I couldn't complete because of a software bug surrounding my delivery address. Live Chat got me connected to Ashley that created an invoice for me on the fly as well as a link for online payment and boom. All sorted. Products delivered on time, neatly packaged and undamaged boxes. Happy as a clam. 😊

    • jon monsoon

      Pleasantly surprised by the awesome customer service (from initial phone call to collection of the product I purchased). Sales guys demonstrate actual, useful knowledge about their products and even though an item in the bundle I purchased was out of stock at the time, they kept to their promise and couriered the item to me as soon as the stock arrived. Unbeatable prices makes shopping here a win.

    • Colin chapple

      I tragically crashed my P4Pro into a wind turbine, tried various parties here in Joburg to get it fixed and also tried the UK, all to no avail,. They all wanted to do a complete swop of the camera and gimble for the cost of a refurbished drone!. Contacted Drone World, dropped it off with the staff there who were extremely helpful and confirmed that they could replace the broken, components only, voila three day later the drone is on its way back to me and for a third of the alternative price. Thank you for indulging my questions and the timely repair.

    • Dian Jacobs

      I sent my drone in for a repair and everything went smooth. Never felt uncomfortable with sending the drone away. Even though the pandemic struck while my drone was there, the service was not delayed. They are the best in the Cape Town area by far.

    • Jason Chabalala

      being new to both drones and online (relatively new to onlie) purchases, this was a pleasant experience doing business with Droneworld, prompt and on time delivery.

    • Sean Paterson

      One of my favorite places to go for all things drone related. Very helpful and friendly staff.

    • Heinrich Veldsman

      I bought a secondhand DJI Mavic Pro from Droneworld (Brian) and even though there was a slight hiccup; they didn't make their mistake my issue. I received good service from Brain and received my drone 2 days after payment. Even though the drone might be secondhand they still include a 6 month warranty. I will definitely recommend Droneworld to new and experienced pilots.

    • Diederik Kotze

      Yesterday I placed an order from drone world....They in Cape Town and Im in Bloemfontein....Quick and painless online order...not even 24h later and Boom...in my hands. Thanx Brain and team.

      Brilliant service from Dylan in sales.. Had a question or two on the phone about a RONIN S and he said he would call me back which he did within 5 minutes.. Popped in this morning to purchase one.. well done great service

    • Ivan Carolus

      Friendly, courteous staff. Just wish they could have some signage from Main Road because it is challenging for first time visitors.

    • Skye Booysen

      I am Tanith Hobkirk. Brandon assisted me in purchasing a combo set for my husband, and gave the most friendliest service as well as advice. Even gave me a better deal than what we expected! Great service, great personality and great knowledge!! well done!

      Thank you for the good service, new toy arrived, time to play...

    • Tania Steffens

      Just received my first purchase from DroneWorld today after placing my order yesterday. What a pleasure to do business with them. I ordered a case for my few months old Dji Mavic 2 Pro, and I'm very pleased and happy with the quality of the product. Thank you for including a free remote control sunhood into the package. I will make good use of it. I'm definitely buying all my drone gear from them in the future with confidence and reassurance that I'll be getting the best service and products.

    • Shilo Nel

      Awesome service and very fast delivery. Thank you guys for everything awesome

    • Justin Govender

      I purchased a Phantom 3 pro drone from Droneworld, this was my second drone (the first one came to an unfortunate end haha). After insurance paid out for the replacement I was able to get this one from Droneworld. The process was so smooth and helpful. Before even purchasing Droneworld provided me with a replacement quotation so that I could show the insurance company the value and once ordered the delivery showed up promptly within a few days. Even before I made the commitment to buy I got a call from their sales team checking in on how my insurance claim was going and anything else they could to help. Great service, great product! Always happy to recommend them

    • Gavin Jaime Fouché

      Great online store, I ordered my drone on Monday and received it today (Wednesday) in the DSV locker (in Gauteng). Great shipping time, good service on Facebook messages (the website online support system isn't great). Happy customer.

      Gave me a lot of time and advice the Brian.
