Cuta-Copter Trident 5000 Waterproof Fishing Drone

The TRIDENT 5000 features a 3.5kg payload capacity, a 20-23min flight time, LOOK DOWN 720p camera and

 ‘Click toSave’GPS function
The main critical electronic components are sealed underneath the canopy. Platform reliability and stability is paramount, and this has been achieved by using advanced hardware and software enabling multiple safety features and multiple hardware redundancies such as dual gyroscopes, dual accelerometers.

A first for fishing drones is the new service reporting. The APP will report the remaining flight time before a standard service is required.

NB: the higher the weight and wind level will reduce battery life and flight times.


No calibration is required as it is done at factory. Compass calibration is only required if the drone does not hold position.


The main electronics are sealed under canopy. Battery and camera are not sealed.


The TRIDENT 5000 features the Pixhawk 4 mini, one of the most advanced flight controllers on the market. The Pixhawk 4 mini features a 32-bit ARM® Cortex® M7, 216 MHz Processor with 2mb flash memory and 512kb RAM. Breaking that down into layman’s terms – It Rocks. The shear speed data is processed results in supreme flight stability, and this is especially noticeable when carrying baits in high winds. In addition to the onboard magnetometer and barometer, it has not one, but two gyroscopes, two accelerometers and two compasses – Feel assured of ultra-reliability as redundancy is built in.


Flotation boost is installed in main frame.


The installed quick switch limits the need to open the battery bay between bait drops. This bridge switch is a reliable robust.


This high-quality radio is fitted with sand covers over the gimbals to improve the overall weather resistance.

Flush mounted buttons and low-profile toggle switches have been used to prevent damage.

The 2 x 18650 lithium batteries provides long radio time at full charge. (separate purchase may apply to int. clients)


Cuta Copter comes with a backpack carry case making it easy to carry hands free.


Cuta-Copter has always prided itself on building the toughest drones, and the new Trident  takes it a step further with even greater survivability. The new LOOK DOWN camera brings back toughness so that knocks and bumps do not cause unneccesary  damage and cost


The Android APP allows special touch to fly options such as ARM and Disarm, Take-off, Waypoint missions, follow-me modes and much more. The APP enables drone parameters to be changed wirelessly – (For advanced users)


Video feed, Height, Distance, parameters, Map, calibration, Way point mission planning and much more.


The New advanced PIXHAWK 4 GPS enables concurrent reception of up to 3 Global Navigation Satellite Systems ‘GNSS’. 



• Alt/Hold mode
• POS/Hold mode (Anti Pendulum Mode)
• Loiter Mode
• Follow me mode
• Return to Land mode
• Come to me mode
• GPS Waypoint mission planning
• Click to Save – GPS position saved


Safe payload is rated at 3.5kg.


The new camera is a LOOK DOWN at DROPZONE camera and is 720p.

landing detection

APP display and voice – Visual and verbal messages are broadcast to keep the pilot informed about all aspects of the flight updating the pilot of Flight mode, battery level, height and distance etc. When safety functions are activated verbal and visual warnings alert the pilot when return to land ‘RTL’ Low battery, loss of signal, loss of GPS and when magnetic interference is detected 

Voltage Monitoring feature – The battery voltage is displayed on the App in addition to verbal updates for easy battery level awareness. In addition, the craft will not arm/start motors if it detects the battery is not at a safe level for flight.

Anti-pendulum feature – World First (POS.HOLD) mode has a more controlled acceleration and de-acceleration to assist in limiting the degree to which a pendulum motion can occur with the bait.

Self-protect Low Battery– The bait release is automatically deployed on Low battery – WORLD FIRST

RTL speed– Return to Land ‘RTL’ speed has been increased to get the drone off the water as soon as possible.

Self-protect Loss of Signal – The bait release is automatically deployed on Loss of signal – WORLD FIRST

Landing detection– The new landing detect feature will shut motors off as soon as the drone detects a landing during auto land from RTL.

Self-protect Loss of GPS signal – Verbal warning and automatic mode change to ALT mode ‘Altitude Hold’ non-GPS mode.

Distance and Altitude Geofence –The parameters are set at factory to 500 metres and a height of 40 metres. (Adjustable for advanced users) RTL can also be set for Alt and Distance breach if required via the APP.

Loss of Signal – Return to Land ‘RTL’ function is activated for loss of signal.

Magnetic interference monitoring – Auto adjustment and verbal warnings.

Low Battery – Return to Land ‘RTL’ function is activated on low battery threshold – WORLD FIRST for fishing drones.

BlackBox – Lifetime Flight recording, Data, and statistics.

Click To Save Function – Simple switch click to save the GPS DropZone position, enabling to fly back to same location.
