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…"
