Isn't this what they call fly fishing?

Florida man needs to step his game up
Its Australia, everything else is trying to kill ya, this is nothing.
@mycatsanahole, Cant kill me if i hang in the air away from everything that might possibly kill. Certain altitudes makes even mosquitoes a non threat.
@LaDarkProphet, You say that, but they probably have flying spider/scorpion hybrids there that are the size of a seagull. Just saying.
How powerful are drones that they can support a human?
@18bluecat, These days? Stupid strong. If you know what your doing, you can make drones that are basically like helicopters. The easy part is that a drone typically uses four rotors. This makes lift off more stable. In the U.S you can fly just about anything so long as you file it as an experimental flyer. Australia however has a lot of really stupid and restrictive laws so i wouldn't be surprised if they have things against stuff like this.
Lakitu lookin’ MFer
He isn’t flying. He is tethered to the ground.
Of course it’s illegal, he’s white
What a true blue Aussie legend, he’s having a VB LOOONNGNECK for breakfast
Do they really make drones that big???
“I’m not even mad, that’s amazing,” Australian cops
If it’s not clear if it’s illegal... IT’S FÛCKING LEGAL
A Drone Throne, if you will. Todd Chavez would be proud
Meh; I call BS
@Diabolik, Why? Never heard of helicopters? Motorized hang glider? Ultralights? Jet packs? I could keep going.
@LaDarkProphet, hmm, well ultralights doesn’t hover, jet packs are not practical, motorized hand gliders require you to hold on to the bar to control and don’t hover, same with paragliders, and helicopters make way too much wind to the point it won’t be practical for fishing, same with drones that can provide enough downward thrust to lift a human, like a helicopter but 4 times worse. Yeah I’m fun at parties
@Diabolik, In the same way the laws of physics saws bees shouldn’t be able to fly, but they do anyway, so too does this guy fly on his drone despite you telling him he can’t. It received decent media coverage here in australia, look it up
@Theuns and LaDarkProphet o_0 holy shït that’s a thing! A drone that has the capacity for carrying people! OK I admit that I didn’t know that’s a thing. But it’s a thing and I have all this money they need to take so I can have the thing! Learn something every day on an app and it’s community
