Working through my ignorance with your help.
Nice helicopter. Would be a shame if something were to interfere with or jam the control link during a bank robbery ;-)
If that happened, the helicopter would revert to it's autonomous programming - Kill, Crush, Destroy!:-)
Yes, a very nice helicopter. I kind of wonder whether it would work if it were large enough to The only big issue might be flight duration - how big of a battery pack can it carry? (although, if you could soup it up to use beamed microwave power . . .)And, speaking of Quadrotors, have a look at this.
"large enough to carry a person" was what I meant to say in the second sentence.And, it looks like human-carrying quadrotors have been built, but they were evidently too hard for humans to fly without having computed stability control.
Tim, I'd hope that any human-carrying version would have an open cockpit so you could puke right out of the thing. Given its wild gyrations in flight, barfing would probably be about all you'd be able to do. I could just see you intersecting with the barf 5,000 feet down as the copter whipped about this way and that.Eww.
