Ray­ma­rine Makes Aerial Video Easy

Saltwater Sportsman - - Float Plan / Electronics -

Shoot­ing video of fish­ing ac­tion is a big part of the mod­ern ex­pe­ri­ence and is re­quired in some tour­na­ments. Ray­ma­rine Ax­iom and Ax­iom Pro MFDS sim­plify this process, free­ing the crew to fo­cus on fish. Ray­ma­rine lets you con­nect a UAV to the MFD, then launch and view images di­rectly from the dis­play, a first in ma­rine elec­tron­ics. The patent-pend­ing tech­nol­ogy is cur­rently com­pat­i­ble with the DJI Mavic Pro ($999) and DJI Mavic Pro Plat­inum ($1,099) video drones. As soon as you hook a fish, you press the Hook-up but­ton. The drone in­stantly launches, ac­quires and tracks the boat, and starts record­ing the ac­tion. You can also view the ac­tion live on the Ax­iom dis­play to see, for in­stance, if any mahi are fol­low­ing the one you just hooked. In split-screen mode, the MFD dis­plays the drone lo­ca­tion, the di­rec­tion the cam­era is pointed, the di­rec­tion the drone is headed and the course back to the boat. The other side shows a live feed from the UAV’S video cam­era with data over­lays that in­clude the drone’s dis­tance from the boat, and its speed and al­ti­tude.
