"Fotokite has a proven pro tethered model where the power is provided from the ground, just have a look at their website. It is based on this experience, and public request, that Fotokite has decided to go with a commercial end-user model. The good…"
"I'm curious to understand on which part of the Fleye the pattent(s) would apply. Searching a bit I found that a single blade copter with basically flaps or ailerons below the flow already existed since several years - google on "kk single copter"…"
"Innovation from Belgium, I like that ! (I'm belgian too) :-)
Wandering if there is any capability for realtime video processing ? This would open doors to many different applications and use cases, such as following/tracking objects or people,…"
"I wonder when GoPro will realize that when they'll release a new camera model with digitally stabilized video, with better quality than Parrot's BeBop they won't be able to follow up with orders. For most hobby shots I really don't care at all about…"
"Very interesting. Just wondering how this will include all the legal aspects of each and every country... If we take Europe for instance there is no uniformity at all. Furthermore depending whether you have a cam attached or not, or whether you fly…"

"@Raviv, does Percepto rely on a flight controler which has a GPS, or would it also work with one that has only a barometer and compas ? If the weight of Percepto can be reduced by removing its shell etc as I read in a previous comment, how about…"
"Excellent summary. I live in Belgium, this is not easier here. There is currently a complete ban on multicopters unless you flight them at a legal flight club. The DGTA (kind of equivalent to the FAA) is willing to issue new rules which are…"
"To use the Rift in FPV there is already a solution on the market called "Transporter3D". While this solution is pretty expensive, it has the advantage to work with standard fpv equipment, ie vtx & vrx. If I don't care too much about the…"
"Nice vid. Hope you will get at some point to explaining beginners how their copters are built, ie which are the various components, their respective roles (what are esc for ? What is an IMU ? etc). Make a vid opening the IRIS+ and explaining the…"
