Guy renders gorgeous fantasy UAV, then 3D prints it

You may have seen this guy's stunning UAV design work before. They were just renders initially, but now he's started 3D printing them, too. I wish I had more details, but his contact page says "Performing military service now. I will reply to the mail as soon as possible. I've asked nevertheless and will let you know if I hear back.

Nice looking design and as above ,would it achieve in the field, if it has a self recharging power source on board

then we would be talking.

I don't think this design was 3D printed.  The parts don't have the characteristic layer lines of a 3D printer, unless it was done with an SLS printer, which doesn't doe ABS, and therefore not really suitable for airframes.  

Some of the parts would not print properly, with too much overhang, unless he's gluing parts together.  I'm a little leery.

However, it is a neat design, and gives me ideas on refining my design. :-)

Great design!

Does introducing tilting rotor system (using rotating servo mechanism) in the design give better stability?...and what could be the power drain due to that? is it worth?

Very nice model...and it seems the www.jurmol.com site is for conceptual models.

Not too outlandlish than some of  www.rqriley.com  lines though he was doing it 35 years before computers were around.

Shops and designers like the Jurmol site will should be the inspirations for todays kids who would be the engineers and builders (makers) of tomorrow.

Nice ideas, nice drawings, nice models.

Talk about false advertising. The rendered images have no relationship to what the actual DJI frames look like.  In NA, they would get sued senseless.
