I would like to ask you for little help in making this drone real, if you could support the project that would be amazing, if you cannot help financially, but you would still like to be part of it, please share the campaign!

Sometimes a flight experiment gone awry exposes a set of behaviors that directly correlate to previous design choices. It's a moment of validation based on developing systems with the expectation that they will fail. The video below is an example of one of these moments.
