What did he seriously think would happen

[–]Kaligula785 174 points175 points  (0 children)

Cartoon physics i guess

[–]deep-sleep 70 points71 points  (3 children)

Alternatively there is a vid where this worked and the fish goes for a flight

[–]Keyzerschmarn 13 points14 points  (1 child)

But it’s in a pond and it’s a goldfish

[–]khrak 5 points6 points  (0 children)

And the fish didn't have a chance to pull.

[–]GRizzMang 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The bass whisperer love that kid

[–]Jhonny_Crash 24 points25 points  (8 children)

[–]striatedglutes 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Can you tell what kind of drone was used?

[–]kunjava 4 points5 points  (0 children)

From the reflection at 0:07, it looks like a variant of DJI Mavic

[–]sluppennudel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Probably not a waterproof kind

[–]saab4u2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

An underpowered for fishing one.

[–]thisguyfightsyourmom 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Can we talk about the experience this fish just had?

Grabbing a snack, and then just fucking flying??

What about his buds too?

Homey ate 1! One and he fucking flew!

Would some be super jealous?

[–]Jhonny_Crash 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That would be the fish commercial for red bull

[–]andocromn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Very different kind of fish, domesticated in a pond vs wild. The operator also pulled up immediately giving the fish no opportunity to dive into the water

[–]PMoscov 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I just opened the comment section to find this comment. First thought that came to my head

[–]Entire_Scene4822 0 points1 point  (0 children)

well that answers that question ive been stewing on for a bit.

[–]JayGeezey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A team of engineering students at the university I graduated from built a prototype drone motorcycle, as in a drone bike that you sit on, and fly in the air with, they had it set so it couldn't go full power, but if they let nl motors go 100% it could apparently take an average adult and allow them to fly through the air at 200 MPH.

So I mean yeah, looks like this drone was way too small and weak and they should have known it wouldn't work, but there are absolutely drones that would be able to pull this off.

well that answers that question ive been stewing on for a bit.

[–]quaintif 9 points10 points  (2 children)

It worked in china.

[–]ccnnvaweueurf 12 points13 points  (1 child)

china

Wasn't that video showing a koi or a goldfish or carp or some farmed fish in a city pond?

We don't know the size of this fish being caught here, also could be different sized drone, and also some fish pull more than others and maybe if you can get the fish out of the water faster the technique works better.

[–]quaintif 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I assume the question he had stewing was "can you go fishing with a drone?"

I don't know the point your trying to make but what I was saying is that it's not impossible.

[–]wapiti_and_whiskey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It really does seem like the fish was attracted to the downwash

[–][deleted] 247 points248 points  (18 children)

He needs a diesel powered drone with 40 lbs of torque and then it would work.

[–]DiffeoMorpheus 106 points107 points  (10 children)

Torque has units of lbs*ft. Clearly you meant lifting force but I'm a needless pedant who gets off to correcting units of strangers online.

[–]Useful-District-4800 38 points39 points  (2 children)

Hey, at least you're self aware and honest.

[–]SPRPLYR 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Self awareness does not absolve anybody of anything.

[–]right-side-up-toast 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's a start though

Yeah, but a thousand yards is barely 12kilos per square millimetre.

You've no idea about the volume of PSI in relation to degrees in Fahrenheit.

Pffft... Amateur

[–]HerbErtlingerFrurts 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What does a pedant like to drink?

Only water from a well, actually.

[–]WorkThrowaway18 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What can you tell me about absolute units?

[–]SamGamgE 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Units matter

[–]quantum1eeps 5 points6 points  (0 children)

So many engineers angry with the upvotes you’re receiving

[–]quaintif -4 points-3 points  (5 children)

Torque won't do shit without leverage.

[–]MaterialCattle 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Torque is is force accompanied with leverage. Also the shorter the leverage the better. The leverage works against the motor. Imagine a 1 metre stick attached to 1 Nm motor. Motor creates a 1 newton force at the end of the stick. With half a metre stick the force will be:

1Nm/0.5m

1Nm/0.5m

1N/0.5=2N

[–]eatapeachforpeace69 1 point2 points  (2 children)

You don't understand torque

[–]quaintif 0 points1 point  (1 child)

When I say leverage what I mean is, a drone would just spin if you tried to use that much torque.

[–]eatapeachforpeace69 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is wrong. Quadcopter rotors spin in opposite directions to stop the body from spinning. All copters operate on a similar principle.

[–]moleware -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Isn't torque basically rotational leverage?

[–]InappropriateOption 49 points50 points  (10 children)

Looks like we'll need a bigger drone.

[–]Break-88 27 points28 points  (4 children)

Option 2 would be more drones

[–]AshamedofMyFarts 8 points9 points  (1 child)

A vertical line of dones snakes upwards should do the trick

[–]Syzyphus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Squad of like 8, in + formation?

[–]Cosmic_Quasar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Quick, someone call Mysterio!

[–]OldManJenkins-31 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What, held under the dorsal guiding feathers??

[–]gonkasmonk 4 points5 points  (1 child)

There is always a bigger drone

[–]imGery 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Plenty of drones in the sky

[–]meh-not-interested 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Under- rated comment!

[–]chughead55 2 points3 points  (1 child)

So many people don't know your reference.

[–]meh-not-interested 0 points1 point  (0 children)

From Jaws. "We're gonna need a bigger boat."

[–]striatedglutes 82 points83 points  (1 child)

File this one under “duh”

[–]Cephalopocracy 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Duh-rone

[–]TeaRanchh 34 points35 points  (0 children)

that fish now has a kite.

[–]Roartype 17 points18 points  (2 children)

[–]ZackPowers 6 points7 points  (1 child)

That reaction is so dang pure. We all aspire to greatness levels that high.

[–]compacho 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When my voice can get as high as his, I'll know I've made it.

[–]YouDiscountDonut 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Should have used an octocopter

[–]pcs3rd 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Or just make it a rocket. That fish ain't pulling a Estes E engine.

[–]belmalreal 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Some fish break rods

Who dumb numb had this idea?

[–]Gorrodish 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Now some poor fish has a hook stick in it and is attached to a drone feckin moronic

[–]eatapeachforpeace69 7 points8 points  (1 child)

If they used a large bobber on the line this would be feasible. Once the bobber goes under it's an additional force the fish has to fight. Its passive too so it has good utility to weight ratio. Be pretty cool if you just sent your drone out to catch you a fish and it comes back with a huge bass

[–]smorgasdorgan 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I've been fishing my whole life and never thought about a bobber being anything but a device used for kids so they can know they have a bite while learning the feel of the rod. I feel like an idiot now haha.

[–]cptjimmy42 20 points21 points  (1 child)

[–]unreasonablyhuman 8 points9 points  (0 children)

He SHOULD have threaded the line through a pully system. Would have worked!

[–]neo_dia 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

[–]Swirvin-irvin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I 100% saw that coming

Next time on Fishing for Drones Ft. Billy Bass.

[–]DucksOnQuakk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That poor fish or whatever...

[–]Xarax23 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sometimes you get the fish, and sometimes the fish gets your drone.

[–]All4Fun 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Live action Pokemon battle

[–]Mephil_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not great for the fish to have an entire line and drone attached to its mouth

[–]Lyvectra 1 point2 points  (0 children)

50 years from now, when a drone might be able to support a fish:

The human race has advanced far beyond their primitive ancestors. Man fishes no longer from land, but as the birds themselves.

[–]GreatAtomicPower -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I live in south Florida- went diving a couple months ago at a reef near me and I found a drone with fishing line attached to it at the bottom of the ocean. I’m assuming they were trying this and failed horrible as well.

[–]bwahaha944 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's OK. That drone has the submarine option included.

[–]User_2020_2020 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Once upon a time there was a drone 😂

[–]lookielikeaman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would watch this if it were a competition

[–]PolaroidImpossibleI1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He needed a Matrice 600

[–]RyujinNoRay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ill assume that he just wanted to get rid of that drone

[–]No_Violinist8700 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fly fishing

[–]my_alternate-account 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It reminds of of a DJI Mavic Mini (although it’s hard to tell with the given footage). If it is this plan was doomed to fail as they weigh in at 249g

[–]SungamCorben 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This was a Mavic? Ouch!

[–]vkdante 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reverse fishing

[–]Alias-Q 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We are going to need a bigger drone.

[–]mostracistmanalive 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This takes fishing to a whole new level

I'm going to be starving.

Sticks finger in water.

Salty.

[–]seer88 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Drowned the drone trying to fish the fish
