"Do you think that the 360 video could be fake or that it was legit but the drone was flown in manual mode ? I can't make my opinion on this video : it has every reason to be fake, but it's difficult to find any convincing clue.
"It would be interesting to find the 360 degrees video mentionned in the video. "be sure to check out the 360 version of this video shot entirely on Samsung Gear 360 cameras".
Does someone have found this 360 video ?"
"Hmmm, I think it's partially fake.
Some scenes are true, like normal skiing with the drone, but some are very likely fake like the flying guy, or even the high speed climb on the hill.
*** But to me the biggest clue is that the guy who…"
""The iddea is NOT feasible without complte control system weighting more than around 100g."
"ARTECH is rubbish for the task, anything above 100USD is rubbish for the task. HABLEG is rubbish for this task for the same reason Besides…"
"Can you summarize the issue in a few sentences, maybe also explain what's the ESNC contest ? If I understand correctly it's something about innovative ideas and your proposal was rejected for some reason, and you fear that they patent it…"
"I agree that the main point of the concept is not if it's mono or multirotor, but that it has a very small hybrid engine. That's innovative at least for drones and brings a solution to a real market need.
In addition it improves safety by…"
"I don't understand the requirement for 6-7 hours flight time : did you fly for 6 hours when para-sailing ? And if the plane can be launched from a boat, can't 1 hour be sufficient to observe the fishes ?"
" Congrats for this interesting project ! Did you consider trying first on a smaller distance than the ocean ? For example something like the Channel (between UK and France), that's a few tens of kilometers and that a lot of people have…"
"Maybe slightly out-of-subject, but I'm surprized by the look of the drone. It looks completely unfinished, its main point is clearly to be a proof of concept of the Aero platform.
If the Aero alone is $499, the Aero vision is $149, and the…"
"Not to mention the servos, they can just stop working all of a sudden. With APM I will still able to fly without issues without rudder and with only one aileron, but the elevator would be catastrophic.
Regarding electronics, normally it…"
