Can someone review my quad setup please?

Hello

Am about to order the parts to build my first quad.

This quad needs to carry a 500g shark bait and drop it into the sea.

Would the below components be capable of such a feat?

I am using a futaba 6j and 5000mah 3s.

Frame: https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/...arehouse_.html

Motors: https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/...arehouse_.html

ESC: https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/...arehouse_.html

Props: https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/...arehouse_.html

FC: https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/...arehouse_.html

--------------------------------

Any opinions on this setup would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Thought I'd clean it up and see the items more clearly. I'm interested in the results.

why not just make a catapult? It can launch it far away from the boat and it's cheap and allot less risky.. Now if you want a shot of it with the bait on the end of say a rope now that would be a cool shot but chances are your swimiing for your chopper after.

Carbon fiber conducts electricity so be aware of that when you build might have some glitchs if you don't heat shrink stuff. I would get a F550 or F450 clone frame (whirlwind)

I think this is a great idea and could be used for (Tuna/Bluefish/Insert Fish Here) fishing as well.
Specifically scouting ahead for schools and then dropping bait in best location, even ahead of the quarry.

My brother was asking me a few years ago if this was doable economically, but at that time it really wasn't.
Now that you can launch a well-equipped 450-size for under a grand with adequate FPV video, we might have to revisit this idea.

Could be a great way for me to get my brother to buy me a nice quad!

I am interested to see if anyone has first-hand knowledge.

Well, will have first hand knowledge shortly once I get this rig built

Not doing it by fpv first. Will test the viability of line of sight and if its too hard I will make an autonomous waypoint dropper.
