The Drone Traceboard is 300mm shorter than the standard Seahorse Traceboard and it holds traces 500mm long. The traces have tube on them to reduce twisting and tangling as the drone flies the baits out to Sea. The traces has the longline clips which are easy to clip on and remove the traces from the looped line.
The 6oz breakaway sinkers also have the longline clips and a swivel. It is recommended to place a rubber band around the breakaway spikes to increase the breakaway pressure. This will allow the line to be pulled tight from the weights back to the winch.
Set-up for Launching
With the speed of the drone, you need to have everything set-up before you take off. Some people stretch the line up and down the beach, but the seagulls will attack your baits and get everything tangled. It is best to lay the traces out side by side with the polyester line looping away from the traces. With liftoff, the traces will then be lifted up into the air by the drone, not dragged across the beach from where they were laying to where the drone is.
As the bait start lifting into the sky, you can start flying the drone forward (and up), but care is needed to ensure the line comes off the winch in a consistent manner.
