"The teams at EPFL are amazing and keep on producing great innovations in this space. The video is encouraging and shows that a concept like Nixie is not that un-realistic in the future."

"Nice video. Have you considered using Paparazzi on your rotorcrafts? It's had these kinds of capabilities you are exploring for many years. When you start to build dynamic flight plans/behaviors, it's a well thought out…"

earthpatrol commented on Flying Buddha's blog post Drones for tree trimming
"Does anyone else think that Jamie and Adam are being a bit irresponsible in their use/application of the Inspire? This video, in my opinion, is not much different then the guy that strapped two roman candles to his quad and started hunting down his…"
