Default Cheapo foamie to go fishing ...

I have been toying with idea to go fishing off the beach using my Phantom 3 Drone ... but am not willing after thinking about it - to risk the model.

It would have had a simple pin arrangement that a loop would slip over ... fly out ... turn 180 and it slips off ... tackle drops into the sea.

Then I thought - why cannot a simple profile fixed wing job do it ? Hand launched with a Glider Release fitted ... so fly out ... hit the switch and bingo tackle drops away ... fly back and land on the beach. Of course it would have to be a tractor prop to avoid the line.

Anyone any ideas ... ??
