"Nice work. Looking forward to seeing the autonomous takeoff/landing sequences as well. Those control surfaces on the nose are brilliant. Props to TUDelft and ENAC. Cheers."

"It would have been nice if they just made a commercial about the challenges of getting hundreds of robots to collaborate and show that instead of trying to dupe the audience into thinking it was part of a live, real-time event. They opened the roof…"

"I think it was more about showing that you are on the forefront using the latest in buzzword technology, then actually entertainment value for the viewers. And if you look at news headlines it seem to have worked very well.."

"If you're into UAVs like we are, then you think this tech demo is cool.  But the fact is that there wasn't anything on screen that couldn't have been done in CG for peanuts.  Somebody needs to come up with a application for…"

"The fact that they pre-recorded it is disappointing.  IMO, if you can't do the show live, there's no point doing it.  Might as well have been all CG.  The point of these shows is the incredible 3D effect you have when you…"

Was it Live or was it Memorex?

Ascending Technologies showed off some of their technology during the Super Bowl Halftime show. If you have seen the video, the formations look awesome in the night sky. The only issue was that the sequences were taped days prior to the Super Bowl and Lady Gaga was likely standing in front of a green screen when she "leaps"…See More

"@Alex maybe let your airframe set in direct sunlight on a warm day and measure the the thermal characteristics internally as a bench mark maybe? 30C doesn't seem like a high enough ambient temperature test and with the external surface being…"

earthpatrol commented on Alex's blog post Nimbus racing drone – full body carbon fiber monocoque on INDIEGOGO
"That looks great. Nice design. I'm curious about some of the physical dynamics related to heat and vibration. Do you have data related to a working prototype of your design? Does it stay cool internally? Are you able to isolate vibration to a…"

earthpatrol commented on Ivan Stamatovski's blog post Easy Aerial partners with Mouser to deliver autonomous SAR solution
"@ivan fully autonomous organisms don't require a network/grid. That's kind of the definition of fully autonomous. Pretty sure the bird that just flew past the window has no concept of a network/grid, yet it's fully autonomous. So with…"
