Pilot and people safety at the center of its design​


The EX-1 has the pilot and people safety at the centre of its’ design. How the EX-1 flies and regulates the pilot is an essential element in assisting with the overall protection of the asset. Platform reliability and stability is paramount, and this has been achieved by using advanced software enabling multiple safety features, in addition to the multiple hardware redundancies such as dual gyroscopes, dual accelerometers and dual compasses.


The New advanced PIXHAWK 4 GPS enables concurrent reception of up to 3 Global Navigation Satellite Systems ‘GNSS’ not just two such as GPS and GLONASS it deals with GPS, Galileo, GLONASS and BeiDouh – in layman’s terms – It Rocks! The GPS has as also been located to the highest point of the craft for the best satellite reception and maximum separation from other electronic parts in the craft to improve reliability and precise landings.

GPS Glitch protection

If your Cuta suffers a GPS glitch you will be notified verbally, and the Flight mode will automatically switch from Loiter or POS Hold mode to Altitude mode to avoid losing the drone – All pilots need to familiarize themselves with ALT Hold Mode.

Low Battery/Loss of Signal 'RTL'

If the battery is low or there is a loss of signal the flight controller automatically enables the return to home function and disables the remotes controls so the pilot cannot inadvertently force the craft to continue flying.

Performance Flight Controller​

The EX-1 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 and two accelerometers – Feel assured of ultra-reliability as redundancy is built in.

Landing detection​

The new landing detect feature will shut off the motors as soon as the drone detects a landing.

Automatic activation of this safety system is enabled once the drone reaches a flying height of 20 meters.

Distance and Altitude Geofence​

Distance is set to 500 metres and 40 metres for altitude (these parameters can be adjusted.(For Advanced Users)


Self-protect function deploys the bait release when there is a loss of signal, loss of thrust and when the low battery return to land function is enabled. These self protect safety features reduce risk greatly.


The main bait-drop flying mode, (POS.HOLD) has more controlled de-acceleration to assist in limiting the degree to which a pendulum motion can occur with the bait. This allows for shorter leaders to be used with safety.


Multiple flight modes​

Advanced Flight Modes
• Alt/Hold mode
• POS/Hold mode
• Loiter Mode
• Follow me mode
• Return to Land mode
• Boat landing mode
• GPS Waypoint mission planning
• GPS positions saved


Drone Fishing Release​

The EX-1 utilizes a waterproof servo–sling drone fishing release system, which has been tried and tested for many years on the earlier Matrix and Revo models. This heavy duty and somewhat basic waterproof bait release will provide years of service. The EX-1 also comes with the snapper tension clip which is awesome for trawling baits and lures, and can be used permanently for that added protection against line snag or reel bind.

Fixed Digital Reef Spotting Camera​

Cuta Copter EX-1 is fitted with a High Definition 720P Digital reef Spotting Camera, providing real time digital video streaming of distances up to 1000m directly to your Android mobile or tablet. Fishing drones in the real world would rarely be required to drop baits out past 500 meters, especially using drones to carry weight out beyond this distance and CASA legal distance is line of sight.

Performance Overview​

The Best Drone for Fishing

The EX-1 is the Ultimate Fishing Drone – No bull dust ,this is the Master and if you think we a joking just check out the list of specs!

Double Water Proofing​

In total there are 3 air chambers. Main electronics chamber, Battery bay and camera pod. Each chamber has a water-tight seal. In addition, the ‘ESC’s’ Electronic Speed Controllers are sealed in Di-Electric resin.

High Rated Wind Capability​

Cuta-Copter EX-1 can handle wind speeds up to 40 km/h and wind gusts up to 50 km/h or Beaufort Force level 6.​

Multiple flight modes

GPS, ATTI, POS/HOLD, RTL, Return to land low battery and loss of signal, Self-protect - loss of signal and low battery.​

Quick Switch​

The installed quick switch limits the need to open the battery bay between bait drops. The craft is quickly switched on and off using the supplied bridge switch.

Double Flotation​

The 3 air chambers provide level 1 flotation. The Cuta-Copter EX-1 is also filled with laser cut foam buoyancy - level 2 of flotation. The landing feet also provide additional floats.

New Servo Release​

A new waterproof servo is standard and can be used in the harshest of marine environments.​
