The drone? Now you operate it from your multifunctional!


Give or treat yourself to a subscription to Boats in Motion print + digital and for only 39 euros a year you get the magazine at home plus read it on your PC, smartphone and tablet. With a sea of advantages.

Think what an advantage, when you go fishing, to be able to check in real time what is happening around your boat, as realistically as possible. We are not talking about side sonar, but drones. Yep, with a drone above your boat it would all be easier, there would be no school of fish, or single predator, able to escape you.

Not to mention the control of weight distribution on board and the trim of the boat (and consequently the right “trim”), which is often clearer when viewed from the outside eye: not only more speed, but also less consumption. You will say, “If I have to think about running the boat and maneuvering a drone, I go crazy.”

True. But from now on, you will control the drone directly from your multifunction display. The idea comes from Raymarine: this type of integration, which is absolutely innovative in the field of marine electronics, allows you to control and display images taken by a drone directly on the Axiom series displays.

Patent pending (will be available from spring), it provides fishermen and boaters with aerial drone vision over the body of water and other video capabilities, without direct manual control. Currently compatible with DJI Spark and Mavic drones, it includes single-button launch/track/record functions, GPS connection for various “follow me” modes, and real-time video streaming to the Axiom MFD.

We can’t wait to try it out!
