This mod blocks the vision positioning system (VPS). Keep this in mind, and you may want to disable VPS I personally have not had any problems.
Please be safe with this project. Never fly the drone directly over people or property that can be damaged. The instructions I provide are a guide only. They are not intended to be an all-inclusive step-by-step build. Only take on this project if you are experienced with microcontrollers and the required components.
This is a system that is used to drop things from a DJI Phantom 3 drone. The inspiration for this project came from this adafruit project for the DJI Mavic:
There is no modification required to the drone, and this system is totally independent from the Drone’s systems. The system uses a photoresistor attached to one of the front LED’s on the drone. When the light is turned on through the controller ( assign the C2 button on the back of the controller to turn the lights on & off ), the microcontroller actuates the servo.
-LED light cover (printed) -Hook (printed) -Load bar (printed) -Avionics box & lid (printed) -Photo resistor -1Ok resistor used for a pulldown with the photo resistor -Servo -Power source I used two successfully: -9 volt battery -3.7 volt lithium battery with a battery/power booster board: http://tiny.cc/v9kmfz -470 µf capacitor across the servo power and ground -Mini microcontroller (I used a metro mini)
- Print all of the parts. I recommend that the light cover is printed in black to reduce ambient light noise.
- Install the photo resistor to the LED cover. I placed it in the hole, and then used a 3d pen to weld in in place and eliminate light leaks. After that, I gave it a bit of hot glue to stake the wires down.
- Assemble the servo to the load bar, and the hook to the servo. The servo that I used to design the load bar fit with no problem. Another servo I had that was a similar size did not. Please check the dimensions before printing to ensure your servo will fit. If it doesn’t you may want to enlarge the cutout or sand/file after printing. You can attach the servo with fasteners or by welding it. If you use fasteners I recommend hand tighten the nuts and then staking the nut with a dap of hot glue. I also recommend staking the servo leads as they exit the load bar.
- Attach the avionics box to the load bar. You can use fasteners, or alternatively you can weld it. Welding it may reduce weight.
- Attach the load bar to the drone. The load bar should be position to the aft of the drone, behind the vertical stiffeners in the legs. As you are looking at the rear of the drone, start with the load bar under the drone. Place the right side by inserting it on the top of the leg and rotating upward. After the right leg is seated, rotate the left side of the load bar over the leg and push down until it snaps into place. This system secures very nicely and holds well without the need of fasteners or zip ties.
- Remove one of the front LED light covers and place the photoresistor light cover. Route the wires down and across the legs and in to the avionics box. You may want to use zip ties to secure the wires. The light cover should hold with friction but you can use a zip tie to secure it if desired.
- Make all of the electrical connections and place the electronics in the avionics box. Place the lid on the box. The lid should hold fine with friction, but you may use a rubber band to secure it if desired.
- After I completed my project, I realized I forgot a power slider. I may revise this in the future with a power slider cutout in the avionics box.
- The system worked well with both the 9v and the Lithium battery. You probably won’t get much life out of the 9 volt, and make sure it’s a fresh battery.
- The avionics bay was designed with a 9v battery compartment. You can break out the divider to accommodate your specific application.
- A sample sketch for the micro-controller is provided in the files.

Payload release mechanism for (but not only) dji drones.
If you love fishing and you love drones, why not combine the two?
If you don’t have a drone yet, we would recommend you to purchase SwellPro Fishing drone here . it is 100% waterproof and comes ready for fishing, and it is the most recommended in our opinion.
However, if you already have one by DJI drone, you can install the Payload Release Mechanism on it very easy.
What can you do with the payload release mechanism you are asking?
Well, very simple! You can release from the air almost anything you can think of.
For example, you can be romantic and drop a wedding ring to your beloved one… or even drop several balloons.
These 2 ideas are just simple examples, and your possibilities are endless.
And since Finish-Tackle is a place for fishing and camping, so… You probably love fishing, so, with this payload release mechanism, you can drop a bait or a lure from the air. See carefully where the fish are exactly (using the FPV remote control) and drop the bait exactly where the BIG fish are.
There are several solutions out there that turn DJI drones into fishing drone, however, some of them are very risky to the drone. Some of them are not safe, and many people already lost their drones just because they didn’t use it right.
There are 3 Payload release mechanisms that match the drone, it does not fit all the models so be careful before you make a purchase.
If you are not sure which one you need, just contact us and we will be glad to assist you.
Different models of this Payload Release Mechanism
Here are the different models
Payload Release for DJI Mavic Pro/Platinum
Payload Release for DJI Phantom 4/4P/4A
Payload Release for DJI Phantom 2/3A/3P/3S
How to install the Payload Release Mechanism?
Wait a minute… it looks great, but how do I install it on my drone?
That is a good question, and the answer is very simple.
First, here is a picture that shows you step by step how to do it.
Not sure you got it correctly… don’t worry!
Look at the following video that demonstrates from A to Z how to do it:
I have installed it correctly, what next? How do I control the payload release mechanism?
The payload release Mechanism controls the drone through its arm light. Just turn on or off the front Led lights of the drone (no matter if its Phantom or Mavic), and then the wires which are connected with the device will be released from the drone. Therefore, you need to set the lights control function button( the button in on the back of your Mavic pro controller) on DJI GO app before using the Mavic pro release device. It allows you to drop anything you want from your drone and at any range.
This device can hold up to 1-1.2kg but the Mavic can probably lift only 300-400gr to keep it safe and usable, you can probably lift more than that but it’s not recommended. You can use this device to cast a life vest far away in the sea or for drone fishing.

Adding a Release Mechanism to a DJI Drone
7th August 2017 By royston
DroneFishing.com have come up with a really neat release mechanism to drop bait from a DJI Phantom 4, 3 Mavic and Inspire.
Here is the video that shows how to install this clever device.
How the Release Mechanism is Triggered
The release mechanism is wired into the front LED lights and is triggered from the app /controller by switching the LED lights on or off.
This process of switching the LED lights off can be an action programmed to trigger by pressing either the C1 or C 2 buttons.
Can the Release Mechanism affect the DJI Drone
This Bait Dropper was designed with the serious fisherman in mind taking every consideration to the DJI Phantom drone and its operation.
Both Phantom 3 and Phantom 4 utilize the landing legs for communication and navigation, on the Phantom 3 all four legs have light bridge antennas in and the one leg, has right at is bottom, the all important compass. On the Phantom 4, DJI added a second compass a little higher up on two of its legs.
When DJI designed the Phantoms they placed these as far away from the motors and any other electrical interference as possible, this is what gives the DJI drone such phenomenal range, stability and reliability.
DroneFishing’s bait dropper is the only release mechanism / device we have found that takes these factors into consideration, placing the electrical components high up on the drone away from the antennas and compasses minimising the chance of interference with the drone’s communication or navigation.
Also the release mechanism carries the load centrally below the gimbal, this ensures that all four props carry the load evenly, which increases the stability of the drone when carrying loads. The release mechanism also stays clear of the downward vision ultrasonic sensor’s and the camera itself.
The release mechanism is supposedly protected by international patents and design registrations. It weighs less than 50g in total, meaning that less stress is put on the drone for the same payload and if need be a heavier load can be carried.
It’s sleek very small (70x45x14mm) design also minimizes any interference with the aerodynamics of the drone when it is flying.
The release mechanism looks like a professional device that will not detract from the design of the DJI drone. When installed it can be left attached to the drone and the release bar can also double as a gimbal guard.
In the video you can see installation takes less than 5 minutes using basic tools.
None of the flying lights are obscured and the location of the release mechanism unit high on the drone fuselage allows the drone to be placed back into the original packaging for transportation without modifications to the packaging.
What Load can be Carried
The Phantom 3 is more forgiving than the Phantom 4 and can carry a slightly heavier load despite the P4 having stronger motors. Max loading is roughly 600g in total, any more and you risk losing your drone.
DroneFishing recommends lighter loads not going over 500g, this is to minimize stress on the drone itself.
Obviously the lighter the load the better and the longer the life of the drone itself. When lifting any mass the drone will not fly 28min on a battery charge whilst carrying any additional loads.
Any fishing line, will be real drag, and is constantly affected by wind speed, flying speed of the drone, direction and altitude.
A telltale sign of a too heavy load is the drone will start to jojo spinning back and forth. This is caused because a drone uses prop yaw to stabilize itself, if the motors are over revving there is no more yaw thrust left and your drone can not stabilize itself.
If this happens, the advice is to drop the load immediately and your drone should stabilize.
It will be interesting to see if this is used for fishing in Cornwall, but we can see the idea of the release mechanism having other commercial aerial photography applications and uses besides fishing.

DJI Phantom 3 Bait Release by Skyclip
What makes skyclip different.
Unlike many of its competitors, SkyClip utilizes a calibrated and qualified stainless-steel spring ball plunger system, making it incredibly reliable and corrosion resistant – perfect for use above and in saltwater environments.
Another important difference is the max tension is adjusted and set at factory to never exceed the specific drones carrying capacity – making it incredibly safe and ‘TO THE LIMIT’.
By maintaining a drop loop of standard diameter line, the tension force applied will always remain the same during releasing of the baits – This is very important for the Safety of the Drone. Tension down from max limit can be adjusted via a stainless-steel set screw to cater for different diameter lines and weights. Skyclip’s tension release mechanism massively reduces the chance of losing your drone due to reel bind or line snags, and SkyClip is awesome for trawling baits and lures.
- SkyClip features a corrosion resistant Ball Spring Plunger that are constructed from AISI 303 Stainless Steel and roHS qualified. The ball spring plungers feature a hardened stainless-Steel ball, Stainless Steel Spring, with 18 Newtons end force capability
- All SkyClip tension release mechanisms are calibrated in factory to the drones maximum lifting capacity – So there can be no chance of over-loading your drone
- By maintaining a drop loop of standard diameter line of .70mm, the tension force applied will always remain the same during releasing of the baits – This is very important for the Safety of the Drone
- SkyClips are lightweight, easy to attach and are extremely strong providing years of service
- SkyClips are designed and manufactured so they do not interfere with your drones VPS – Visual Positioning Sensors) and when connected – maintain correct centre of balance.
Brand : SKYCLIP Model : DJI Phantom 3 models Material : Polyamide Plastic and Stainless Steel Line Diameter calibrated : 0.40mm Tension force calibrated : 1200gms
SKYCLIP – OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Instructions for use.
ALWAYS Use a Drop loop of 0.40mm diameter mono fishing line in order for mechanism to release accurately at preset limit for the Phantom 3 Clip .
Tension force is preset at the factory using .40mm mono.
Always install Skyclip in the middle of the drone for best weight distribution and sensor avoidance.
INSTRUCTIONS – For Phantom 3 Clip
Please make sure to always use a drop loop length of 1 metre with 0.40mm diameter Mono in all situations for every cast. Insert/Clip the line in the slot of the bait release until it locks in place. Take-off the drone gently and reach a defined safety height of over 20 meters above sea level usually. Fly the drone out over the water at maximum speed and make sure that your line does not touch the water during the flight.(Keep the line taught during flight – hold it in your hand) Once you reach the point that you want to drop the bait, close the lever of the reel mechanism so that the line stops bailing out – the line will release.
DO NOT slow down the drone and keep the speed constant until the line releases automatically. Finally bring back the Drone to Shore.
Attention – Use our products at your own risk as we do not accept any responsibility for whatsoever loss or damage or injury.
The Story Behind SKYCLIP and UAV Electronics
UAV Electronics has been designing and producing special Electronics and Autopilots for Drones and Bait Boats since 2016. Whilst designing the electronic release systems for RC Boat fishing, the need arose for bait release systems for Quadcopter Drones. We initially developed an electronic release for the DJI Phantom Drone that was bolted to its underside and having tested this electronic release, we found that there were many drones being lost to the water due to the electronic release not releasing the line in time, or if there was a reel jam – the Drone essentially would fall from the sky as it was flying out the baits.
We began extensive research to try to develop something safer and more reliable and by chance we came across the Kite Clip release from a New Zealand website which specializes in Kite fishing accessories. The Kite Clip utilized a very simple design that consisted of two ball bearings pushing against each other with a spring behind them and the tension could be adjusted with a set screw. Having purchased one from New Zealand we tested it on Quadcopters with great success and we immediately saw the benefits of using a tension release system for drone fishing .
These mechanisms are readily available and made by factories in Europe which specialize in its manufacture, and they have been used extensively in other markets for many years. This provides a much more stable and quality manufactured tension mechanism which is extremely reliable, works flawlessly every time, will not corrode, and more importantly – we did not need to re-invent the wheel or require any special Patents.
After many designs and enormous testing – which continues today, we designed a new Tension release Clip which is integrated into our own designed gimbal mounts used for Drones to carry payloads and thus the SkyClip was born.
