If I have one gripe about the ad­mit­tedly limited time I’ve spent fly­ing our four­blade DJI Mavic drone, it’s about fly­ing it with a small screen. I typ­i­cally use the 4.5- inch dis­play of my iPhone, and I can’t ef­fi­ciently mod­ify cam­era set­tings or the drone’s in- flight menu on the fly ( pun in­tended). Add sun­shine to the screen and it be­comes nearly an im­pos­si­ble task.

Ray­ma­rine’s so­lu­tion, an­nounced at this year’s Mi­ami Boat Show, is to in­cor­po­rate the drone’s menu and flight set­tings into your boat’s Ax­iom mul­ti­func­tion dis­play—pro­vided, at least for now, that you’re fly­ing ei­ther a Mavic or DJI Spark drone. This in­te­gra­tion al­lows you to ac­cess flight and record fea­tures from your pilothouse’s MFD, mean­ing that you can see, record, and stream what­ever your drone sees in real time. This is per­fect for an­glers who want to film that epic bat­tle with a blue mar­lin, but it also lends it­self to less ex­hil­a­rat­ing uses, such as scop­ing out an ad­ja­cent moor­ing field.
